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.

After performing live ASL Comedy shows from 2002 to 2017, Keith has retired from the stage.
He is still working on ASL films and studio projects.

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.
