“YouTube Videos made the ASL star” – Keith Wann

Was asked to participate in a closed conference last year held by Google and YouTube and was shown on the big screen at the event – talking about how YouTube played a part in my career. I noticed when I sim-com I sound like William Shatner doing Capt. Kirk!
Thank you to all my fans and the millions of hits here and other social media places – Without you I am just another mental institution patient.
www.KeithWann.com and www.ASL24.info. Keith Wann has been performing since 2002, starting with the well-known ASL Improv group, ICEWORM, and then in 2004 started his solo career which quickly took off in 2006 due to his viral You Tube ASL video parody rendition of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby”.

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, currently stars in a popular ASL Children’s book iTunes APP, is also a writer/actor for a new Signing Time project, and has done the annual “Read for the Record” story since 2009. Keith Wann has also done several commercials for Pepsi, appeared in Law and Order, and several short films, and travels all over the country performing almost every weekend with his popular solo show and the ASL Comedy Tour.
Check out his videos, over 250 on youtube, and laugh your ASL off!

Wann’s title as one of the most sought after and beloved performers in the ASL community, has grown into an industry and cultural household name. 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. Along with performing Keith also does workshops and maintains his National Certification as an interpreter, NIC:Master and CI/CT and has been an artistic ASL consultant on video projects including the artist Sia.

Respected in the industry as an ASL advocate, Keith has reached across the cultural divide between deaf and hearing worlds through humor, to bridge misconceptions and cultural gaps. After changing careers from interpreting to personal development, Keith and his wife Emilia joined LegalShield as independent associates and now travel all over the nation providing affordable access to the legal system and focusing on providing personal development to the ASL Community.
