In addition to his work on "Big Time Rush", Stephen is a popular stand up comedian seen on Comedy Central and "Last Comic Standing", and an extraordinary singer, having been the original actor to play the part of Shrek for Dreamworks in the Broadway bound musical while it was still in development under Jeffrey Katzenberg and Sam Mendes.

The song selections for the evening will hit a wide range of styles from reinventions of current Pop hits, to classic Rock, to R & B and even a touch of Broadway. Backed by a smokin' band featuring the critically acclaimed Brad Ellis, Nate Light, and Jake Reed, Mr. Glickman tears the roof off with souful, spirited and completely fresh vocals.
Proceeds from the evening will go to "Songs For Isabella", a grass roots fundraising campaign... Please feel free to check out Isabella's page and The Songs For Isabella Fund website through this link....... http://www.talbertfamilyfoundation.org/pages/Isabella.html
In August, 2009, after her parents found her breathing but unresponsive 2-year old Isabella Vahanian was rushed to the hospital, stabilized and diagnosed with AML leukemia. While still in intensive care, she immediately began an intensive 6 round, in-hospital chemotherapy treatment plan. Her parents, Gregory and Wendy, lived with Isabella at the hospital on shifts 24/7 for almost 8 months while still caring for Gabriela, their then 8-year old, at home. Isabella’s care became their full-time work.
Now that she’s completed her in-hospital treatment, her bone marrow and blood tests show she’s in remission.
To assist the Vahanian Family in meeting the financial challenges associated with the long term hospitalization of their daughter, they’ve partnered with The Talbert Family Foundation. This 501c3 organization provides a tax-deductible way to assist them in meeting their current cash flow needs as they bridge forward and reintegrate into a normal flow of life.
