About Me

Actor, Performer, Writer, Producer, Father, Husband, and a terrible stunt-guy

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 retired his live stage comedy show in 2017 to focus on web and studio projects.

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.  

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 maintains his National Certification (NIC:Master and CI/CT) as an interpreter and works on Broadway providing access, 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.  For more information on their business check out www.CheckYourRights.net.

"Thank you for allowing me to share my stories with the language my parents taught me."

The retirement video

This was the last live stage show in my career - This was a bit I have done for 15 years - ASL music and jumping around - tonight my Patella Tendon fully ruptured as I was jumping. It happened before I hit the chair, which the chair actually broke my fall. Surgery was required - and since my show was very physical - I felt I didn't want to do it if I couldn't go 100% my way.
I am still active with ASL comedy but now on a set/studio filming a new ASL series and Children's books.
