Steve Daut has been performing in various venues for over 35 years. Whether telling folk tales, tall tales, personal stories, or Mark Twain adaptations, Steve brings quirky characters to the stage, often finding wisdom in the most unlikely places. Onstage credits include magic, sketch and stand-up comedy, improvisation, storytelling, and MC work, but he ultimately found a true home with storytelling, which has become his focus for the last 8 years. Daut is a graduate of the Second City and the Purple Rose Theatre Actor-Director Lab. His book of short story adaptations, Telling Twain, received Honors from the 2020 Storytelling World Awards.
