Jim Caruso made his Broadway debut alongside Liza Minnelli in the smash hit Liza’s At The Palace! The show was honored with a 2009 Tony Award for Best Special Event and the recording was nominated for a Grammy.
For his nightclub work, Caruso has won six MAC Awards and two BackStage Magazine Bistro Awards for sold-out shows all over New York City.
Since 2003, he has hosted a weekly Monday night open mic bash at Birdland called "Jim Caruso’s Cast Party,” which has brought him three BroadwayWorld Awards, a New York Nightlife Award, MAC Award and the Sidney Meyer Award. He’s taken celebrity versions of the Party to Lincoln Center and Town Hall in New York, and celebrated local talent at venues in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London, Chicago, Austin, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, San Francisco and on the high seas.
The weekly “Broadway at Birdland” series he produces has also been honored with a Nightlife Award, and has featured concerts by Liza Minnelli, Chita Rivera, Jason Robert Brown, Tom Wopat, and hundreds more stage and screen double and triple threats.
