Craig A Meyer has an extensive background in theatre and music, aiding his already spot on resemblance to Elton John's over-the-top style and unforgettable sound. On Broadway, Meyer created the role of Clinton Badger in MGM's classic Meet Me in St. Louis and has toured nationally in Cats, Starlight Express, and Irving Berlin's White Christmas.
Meyer shaped most of his remarkable impersonation for Remember When Rock Was Young from first hand experience as he worked with Elton John and Tim Rice on the score for Disney's The Lion King. He was also called upon by Alan Menken to contribute his renowned talents to the musical composition of Disney's Aladdin. His musical gifts and energetic charm have allowed him to tour internationally and record with timeless icons like Frankie Valli and Barry Manilow, an experience that prompted Manilow to say of Meyer: "Craig is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with. He can do ANYTHING."
Meyer's television and film appearances include Necessary Roughness, Will & Grace, Good Morning Miami, Family Law, and General Hospital. Film credits include Leatherheads with George Clooney and Renee Zellweger, Joyful Noise with Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah, and Identity Theft with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy.
