"Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else."
Fiore was born June 10th at 3:12 AM—the same date and time as Judy Garland—and grew up in Cicero (Lipschitz!), Illinois. He is an actor, singer, and dancer—turned “good mover” by virtue of age and gravity—best known for his work in musical theatre.
He's toured with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and A Chorus Line. Off Broadway credits include Algonquin Theater Production’s The Paparazzi: A New Musical starring Drama Desk winner Ken Jennings, Gallery Player’s Chess, and the new play The Visitor. Chicago credits include Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat starring Tony Award nominee Brian Lane Green, Singing In The Rain, Sunday in the Park with George, A Chorus Line, Grease, Chicago, Cabaret, Damn Yankees, The Christmas Foundling, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, the regional premiere of The Baker’s Wife, and the world premiere of Danger Will Robinson: the Lost In Space Musical. Regional credits include The Full Monty, George M!, Funny Girl, A Little Night Music, and Hello Dolly! starring Broadway veteran Susan Mansur.
Television and episodic credits include two appearances on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Crimes of Fashion, Mysteries at the Museum, and Muy Buenos Dias. Fiore also guest starred as flamboyant Italian artist Luca on the award winning series Last Call. He's costarred in pilot presentations of PR and Cousins. Film credits include Nick and Nicky, Hale Bopp, and Gravedigger. He's appeared in commercials for R.C. Pro Am Race Cars, Bacardi, McDonald's, Wendy's, Houlihan's Restaurant Group, and Fort Troff.
Fiore mounted I’m Still Here, his debut solo cabaret show, during 2017 in New York City. He brought his show to Don’t Tell Mama Cabaret, 53 Above Broadway, The Duplex Cabaret, and The West End. He chronicled his 30+ years in show business with a score originated by his favorite leading ladies of Broadway. It featured 'Meadowlark', ‘Somewhere That’s Green', ‘Dance: Ten, Looks: Three’, ‘Waiting For Life', his signature “Hookers With a Heart of Gold” medley with excerpts from Miss Saigon, Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Jekyll & Hyde, and Stephen Sondheim's ‘Another Hundred People', 'Not A Day Goes By', 'Losing My Mind', and 'I’m Still Here'. He followed this with his second cabaret offering, aptly titled, Losing My Mind. He later brought a revamped version of I’m Still Here to Davenport’s Piano Bar in Chicago and continues to perform his show across the country.
Fiore is a scholarship recipient and recording artist with Recording Artist Development (RAD) in New York City where he recorded his debut EP in 2018. He's also a company member of The Actor's Project NYC. He’s had the honor of opening for the legendary Phyllis Diller, and comedy greats Judy Tenuta and Judy Gold. Always up for a challenge, and eager to display his own brand of performing, Fiore even entered the world of professional wrestling and maintained a winning record across two years.
Other noteworthy credits include National Anthem soloist for the Chicago Bears and Chicago Blackhawks, backup singer for Ty Herndon, production singer for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line and Disney, and dancer for Jessica Simpson, Kristine W., and the Miss America Scholarship Competition.
