Zeidwig is a very unique & talented musical comedian who can be described as the modern "everyday man in trouble" just trying to get the job done. That is, with a grand piano. Zeidwig is someone we can all identify with at one time or another - only he also brings to the table an unparalleled combination of musical virtuosity as a concert pianist and a unique sense of comedic timing. In the tradition of Borge, Chaplin, and Keaton, this incredible musical comedian has sojourned on to enormous critical acclaim throughout the world, not only as a concert pianist and composer, but also as a stellar comedian. Described by major corporate meeting planners as a "Natural in the industry," musical comedian Zeidwig has performed both nationally and internationally for such corporate giants as Westinghouse, Hewlett-Packard, and Phillips Corporation. After several sold out performances at Carnegie Hall, he has also enjoyed recent successes with Major Symphony Orchestras both as a Concerto Soloist and Comedian.
"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Zeidwig to other performing arts venues. I have known Zeidwig. since 1996 and have had the pleasure of presenting him multiple times over the years. On two occasions I have turned to Zeidwig to be our first performance after a national tragedy. The first was in Newburyport, MA, one month after 9/11, and the second was in Baton Rouge, LA, one month after Katrina. Both times patrons said almost the same thing: “I haven’t laughed since September 11th,” or “I lost everything in Katrina and this is the first time I have laughed since.” I am confident that audiences around the country will love him just as much as ours did."

"Attendees were very impressed with Zeidwig’s performance as well as his friendly and accessible personae. Zeidwig understood the importance of this group to the Bowlus Center, as financially successful and giving members of the community who show their support. He was a hit both on and off the stage. The following evening Zeidwig performed as a part of the Bowlus Cultural Attraction Series. The audience represented a diverse crowd of all ages and backgrounds who responded enthusiastically to Zeidwig and his performance.
The first half of his show included his physical comedy as well as his outstanding musical talents as a pianist. The laughter was abundant throughout the first Act and the playing was superb. It was evident during the intermission, from the comments in the lobby, that the audience was enjoying the humor but was even more impressed by Zeidwig’s abilities with his instrument. The audience was so enthralled that they often cheered his playing and gave him a lengthy standing ovation. I would not hesitate to recommend Zeidwig to any venue that wanted to please their audience and provide them with the opportunity to hear one of America’s most gifted pianists as well as a talented comedian."
