A truly unique performer, Elli The King of Broadway has the combined talents of Zero Mostel, Nathan Lane & Danny Kaye, with the comedic timing of Robin Williams & the voice of Pavarotti, rolled into one entertainer.

Elli began his theatrical career in Los Angeles under the direction of the famous That Little Old Wine Maker ME! James Rawley & Rawley's best friend, Lee Strasberg. Some of the many varied roles he inhabited were Jud in Oklahoma, The Tin Man in the The Wizard of Oz, A-rab in West Side Story, Charlie Davenport in Annie Get Your Gun, Kralahome in The King & I, Nicely-Nicely in Guys & Dolls, he has also appeared in such favorites as Arsenic & Old Lace, Julius Caesar, Up the Down Staircase & Our Town, to name a few & is destined to play the part of Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. Elli's unique look & moldable image, added to the myriad of languages & accents he has perfected, lends itself to the diverse roles he plays.

For a while, Elli changed directions & lived his childhood dream of becoming a Hassidic Orthodox Rabbi & Cantor, leading religious services & teaching in Synagogues throughout the U.S. & Canada. He is now reviving his dream of taking his place on "The Great White Way," by lending his rich, multi-accented & multi-character voice to several children's audio tapes, radio & TV commercials, both in the U.S. & England.

In 2002, Elli appeared as a Hassidic Jew (big surprise) in the film, 2 Fast 2 Furious, filmed on location in Miami, Florida; in 2003, he worked on the Indy film, Once Upon A Wedding (now on DVD) as a Barfly & in 2003, he performed the role of the "Papa" in The Jazz Singer, which toured South & Central Florida.

Since moving to NYC in 2004, he has been seen in commercials, promo spots for VH1's Metal Month, as featured background in several movies & been on stage at Birdland in Times Square, the Duplex & Marie's Crisis in the Village and has been seen singing & doing stand-up comedy at Stage 72 at the Triad. Currently working on his third one-man show, Elli has become quite popular & well known on the Florida, New York & California Karaoke circuits & is lovingly referred to as "The King of Broadway." In addition, Elli, a founding member of the Jewish improv group Improvodox, having just appeared in the feature film Rob the Mob opposite Michael Pitt & Nina Arianda, will next be seen in the film The Cobbler, starring Adam Sandler, set for 2015 release. In addition to his busy performing schedule, Elli also writes entertainment reviews & features celebrity interviews at broadwaykingdom.com
