Manny Oliveira has been performing professionally since 1977 when, as an actor, he was cast in the lead role of the King at the Medieval Manor Dinner Theater. He performed in the role for one year before being asked to recreate the role in Chicago at the King’s Manor. In Chicago he not only served as the lead character, but was also artistic director.
His performances were sold out 12 weeks in advance for six consecutive years. The King’s Manor subsequently became the longest running musical/comedy revue in Chicago theater history and gained Mr. Oliveira recognition as one of the foremost authorities in the creation of concept Dinner Theaters. He went on to create three more such theaters in the midwest.
In 1984, Manny left the theater to concentrate on standup comedy as well as film, television, corporate training and other projects. His career immediately soared with night club, corporate and concert appearances nationally. With his improvisational style and astute observations on family, religion, relationships, and current events, he continues to be a favorite among audiences from all walks of life.
This Rhode Island native, now Atlanta resident, currently tours the country as a standup comedian. He dedicates the rest of his time on other theatrical, film, corporate and writing projects including the completion of his screenplay, “Tom’s Bridge” and an original pilot for television.
