Keith Wann has been performing since 2002, starting with an ASL Improv group, and then in 2004 his solo career quickly took off due to several videos that went viral. He semi-retired his live stage comedy show in 2017 to focus on web and studio projects.
Combining side splitting adult humor, with heartfelt real life stories from his Coda childhood and teenage life, has become his comedic trademark among the ASL Community. As a hearing child of Deaf adults, Wann is an original breakthrough performing ASL artist and has been featured in several short films with ASL and currently stars in a popular ASL Children's book iTunes APP called Signed Stories. He has also done several commercials for Pepsi, appeared in Law and Order, and several short films, including The Strength Within You and others listed here.
Keith is really excited to be currently involved with www.SignItASL.com as a producer/writer/actor for a new Signing Time project.
Along with performing Keith also maintains his National Certification (NIC:Master and CI/CT) as an interpreter and an artistic ASL consultant on video projects including the artist Sia.
He has interpreted: Aladdin, Amy and the Orphans, Annie, The Play That Goes Wrong, Midsummer Night's Dream, Mary Poppins, Something Rotten, School of Rock, Long Day's Journey into Night, Noises Off, West Side Story, Shrek: The Musical; Little Shop Of Horrors, Hamlet, Beauty and the Beast, and 39 Steps.

This was a bit I have done for 15 years and in April 2017 my patella tendon fully ruptured as I was jumping. Surgery was required.
I am still active with ASL comedy but now on a set/studio filming a new ASL series and Children's books.
And currently performing a more family-friendly kid-oriented show along with teaching workshops.

Our goal is for children to submit stories, either written or in raw ASL form, to us and then we will pick a story every 3 months and upload the ASL Performed version here for all to share. We want children, the future storytellers, to be creative and find the artist that is in each one of us.
