Steve Daly was born & raised on a farm in Altoona, Iowa. Steve’s comedic career began when he was just 8-years old in a school recital when his voice cracked. The audience laughed, and LAUGHED HARD. He’s been “cracking up” audiences ever since!
As Adventureland Parks first “Head Resident Artist-in-the-Park”, Steve combined his comedy talents with his flair for drawing caricature portraits. This led to opportunities that took him off the family farm to the World Famous Fisherman’s Wharf. Discovered on the streets of San Francisco, Steve was hired & quickly became the driving force behind one of America’s top Amusement Park Entertainment Companies. Creating, designing & performing shows for theme parks across the USA was invaluable experience that gave him years of “time on the boards” as an entertainer. 35+ years later, he is considered one of the top consultants for parks such as Disney, Six Flags and many others.
All the while doing the above, he was also performing his unique Comedy Magic & Puppet Shows for Comedy & Nite Club National Tours. This led to a Las Vegas appearance in a Magic Revue Show called “Showgirls of Magic”. That appearance lasted more than 11-years and over 10,000 shows. Other shows followed including “V~The Ultimate Variety Show”, “Buck Wild”, and a 2-year run with the Las Vegas Strips ONLY Family-friendly, “CLEAN” Comedy Hypnosis Show at the Riviera Hotel & Casino. Other Showroom appearances in Aruba, Hawaii, Atlantic City, as well as Mexico, Canada, London, & a Command Performance before Prince Charles, Margaret Thatcher, & the Beijing Government in Hong Kong for the 1997 historic changeover of English Rule back to the People of China.
Television appearances include a 3-year principle role on Criss Angel’s MIND FREAK A&E T.V. Show, A one hour documentary on Steve’s incredible life’s story for BBC’s Channel Four, and appearances on HBO, ABC, NBC, and CBS.
