Anyone who knows Whatever Goes TV Show creator/producer Steve DiGennaro was not the least bit surprised to learn of his decision to create his own comedy show. Born & raised in Brooklyn-New York, his family claims he was always quite the character and always entertained family and friends. From the early age of 4, he always pretended to be someone else. Whether it was someone on TV, or Santa Claus, he consistently showed everyone around him that he had a vivid imagination. As he got older, watching Saturday Night Live became a regular part of his schedule. He was fascinated, entertained and intrigued by the weekly comedic sketches on the show. This is what began his burning desire to become a professional actor.
Steve DiGennaro has been seen acting on Network Television, Comedy Central, and Investigation Discovery. He has been a proud member of SAG-AFTRA Actor's Union since 2006. He has built a reputation as the kind of actor who can bring the most mundane characters to life in the most interesting ways. On the page, some roles appear not to have much to them but in the hands of Mr. DiGennaro, they come to life precisely as needed to keep an audience engaged.
Steve portrayed Norman Bulansky, the Nathan Lane role in the play “The Boys Next Door”. A fictional character that was imbued with such a level of pathos and realism that it made one feel like they were watching a documentary on stage.
Steve has also portrayed real life characters as well. In the TV show, “I Married A Mobster” he played the role of real life ex-convict, Michael DeLucia to great acclaim.
In 2011 Steve produced and created the sketch comedy show, “Whatever Goes TV” which will soon be turned into an indie movie. Steve’s depiction of the small but pivotal role of Frankie in Comedy Flo Entertainments “Philly Furnished” made such an impact with viewers that his character was showcased in the follow up film, “Mama Needs A Ride”.
Message from Steve
Being an actor in New York City, I've met with and worked with many talented people. I think that there are just not enough opportunities for people who work in this very difficult industry. So it is an honor and pleasure serving you with laughter while providing talented artists an avenue to unleash. Over the years, I've worked really hard to make my acting dreams come true. I've always absolutely loved to portray funny, over-the-top characters and to make people laugh. In fact, one of my favorite experiences was when I participated in a sketch comedy group performing around NYC. This show has been an idea burning around my brain for many years now. I've always jotted down sketch ideas, funny characters, stories, etc. just in case one day I can use it for a show. Well, now I have the opportunity to take out the old notebook and start my own TV show. Whatever Goes TV Show is an awesome collaboration of all kinds of talent including writers, designers, directors, & actors. It is my true desire to help provide more opportunities of exposure for ALL of the talent involved, both in front and behind the cameras, and those that have put hours into working with me on this exciting project.
