Serengeti Steve performs over 600 shows a year throughout the country and has been featured as a Las Vegas finalist on NBC's hit show "America's Got Talent.” His talents have even earned him a place in the famous "Guinness Book of World Records.” Although Steve's love of all animals is high on the list, his first love and driving force will always be entertaining the children and adults attending his performances. Steve's greatest asset is his ability to combine a thrilling yet comical presentation which involves audience participation.
