Life In A Cabaret
Reviews from Eric’s One Man Shows
"To say Seppala has a following is
an understatement. The overflow crowd of guys and gals gave him
the kind of noisy, enthusiastic reception any entertainer would envy.
Obviously he knew what they liked and they let him know it... Seppala is now back
at the Cinegrill solo where he’s creating a new type of cabaret show
that cleverly mixes his special brand of comedy with unusual-for-cabaret
-Archie Rothman, 4Front Magazine
“Eric…has built an act that blends fine singing
with some very funny bits…But the giggles don’t mask a real talent and a
voice and delivery that do much to bring the audience right up stage.
Eric manages to inject vulnerability where appropriate and to wring
hopefulness out of numbers that are normally performed more as dirges.
For that alone he’s worth seeing (And the video entrance hopefully has
survived any rewrites – it’s a stitch.).”
Joe Morris, Backstage West
“Mr. Seppala is successfully balancing between
stand-up comedy and cabaret. Building on influences as varied as Sarah
Vaughan and H.R. Puf’n’stuf, Eric’s work moves from hilarious to
poignant with no warning.”
Richard Israel, The Celebration Theater
“I just adored the loony Viking-looking Eric
Seppala’s funky take on ‘Twisted’ (a total gem) and his show-stopping
wacky novelty piece, ‘Cave Man’, which could be the premise of an entire
sitcom – a genre this multi-talented singer/comedian is surely destined
