Spending most of his adult life as an actor, singer, comedian, impressionist, a member of Actor’s Equity and SAG-AFTRA, Dean Christopher’s stage, film, and television resume is extensive. Dean has opened for Frank Sinatra, Jr. and was a favorite opener for legendary comedian Don Rickles. Along the way he also released his CD “Swingin’ with the Best”, for which he wrote the title song.

Dean got his start at local clubs in his hometown of St. Louis, such as The Sting, The Speakeasy and the Playboy Club, with an act consisting of singing, comedy and impressions of personalities and singers. While he had grown up with rock n’ roll, his preference was the type of music the Rat Pack, Bobby Darin, and the like had been doing in Las Vegas.

Dean moved to New York City, focusing on honing his acting skills at HB Studio. At the same time, he still sang, did comedy and emcee work for companies such as Boeing, Minolta, Chevrolet, EDS, Sony Federal Express, Tivoli and AT&T and performed at clubs like Catch a Rising Star, Chilies, and Don’t Tell Mama.

As an actor he shared the theatrical stage with actors such as Theodore Bikel, John Cullum, Eddie Bracken, Lee Meredith and Donna McKecknie and made appearances on daytime’s All My Children, One Life to Live and Another World. His favorite stage roles include Amos Hart in“Chicago”(receiving St Louis Theatre Circle Award) Nathan Detroit in “Guys and Dolls”, Herbie in “Gypsy”, and the title roles in “Barnum” and “Phantom”. Dean has also been seen and heard on numerous radio and television commercials and is a recipient of the Marconi Award for Best Male Voice Talent.

Frank Sinatra got to see resurgence in his style of music in the later years of his life. After Sinatras death, Deans love of that style of performance caused him to return to his roots as a night club/cabaret performer, hoping to keep alive the music of the performers he learned so much from in the beginning of his career. In doing so Dean developed entertaining shows paying tribute to classic Las Vegas; its style, music and performers back when the Rat Pack ruled.
