Right now (Nov/Dec 2021) I can be seen almost daily in a Prime Time TV commercial running on national networks in which I’m Santa sitting in a lawyer’s office while explaining, “Grandma got run over by a reindeer and the insurance company said they aren’t going to pay a penny.”
I did a “Funny or Die” video with Mariah Carey. Here’s the story.
It’s running on a new medium (GO90.com) but click here to see a clip from it.
There is NOTHING as good as a real-beard Santa in a high-end costume. Real Beard Santa Joe performs at corporate events, home parties, weddings and in commercials, television, theater, print ads and movies.
The photo on your left is Alec Baldwin and his family visiting Real Beard Santa Joe in the Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. If ever there was a bad boy who has more fun than anyone else, it’s him. His wife is not just beautiful, but one of the nicest, smartest and best moms Santa knows.
To your right, at a private party on Central Park West, with CNN News Anchor Chris Cuomo. He’s on my good boy list.
Backstage Magazine – the most important publication in the Musical Theater business – hires me as their Santa to sing and MC at their annual Holiday Get Together for the cream-of-the-crop of Broadway show singers and dancers.
Then there’s this shy, gentlemanly author and playwright, on your left, who used to be the most famous “wild and crazy guy” of all. The photographer needs to learn how to keep his fingers from covering the lens, but Steve Martin was gracious and I didn’t want to spoil his fun at the NYC party on by asking for a retake. The other gentleman in the photo, since he’s not a public figure, will remain unnamed, but if your show is a major Broadway hit, it’s probably in one of his legit houses. (OK . . . it’s Jamie Nederlander.)
I was proud to perform before a 60 piece symphonic orchestra and an audience of 2,200 people at Jersey City’s Annual Holiday Concert on the stage of the restored 89-year-old Loews Landmark Theater. I was personally chosen for this gig by the city’s Mayor and the former Governor of NJ who hosted the event.

IMPORTANT NOTE – Santa offers a three-million dollar Personal Liability Insurance Policy effective during his assignment with you – and he will provide a verifiable copy of a clean background check by a recognized authority in the field. Both are important for your protection. Any Santa you hire should provide proof of them in writing at some point between booking and the event itself.
