Elvis started his acting career in Chicago. There he acted in over 30 plays and musicals and won 2 best actor awards. One for his portrayal of Llyod in the dark comedy Reckless and the other for his comedic performance in the play I Hate Hamlet where he plays the lead character of Andrew Rally.
He then found his true love of Improv. He was fortunate enough to study with the late great Del Close for years. It wasn’t long before Elvis found himself on stage performing and studying with the likes of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and the cast of Upright Citizens Brigade. Before leaving Chicago for Los Angeles Elvis managed to rack up over 1000 live performances performing either Improv, plays or stand up comedy. He performed at The Second City Chicago, Improv Olympic, and The Annoyance Theater to name a few.
Now residing in Los Angeles he has acted in many award winning short films, features, commercials, and industrials. Currently you can see him with his two boys in a Microsoft commercial. Also, his latest film Desert Son in which he plays a disturbed priest, has just received a distribution deal and can be seen on many Direct TV channels.
Besides doing acting and improv, Elvis is an accomplished stand up comedian and can be seen at many of the big clubs around town. His last performance at Flappers Comedy Club was reviewed by Scoop L.A. Magazine in which they wrote, “Elvis Winterbottom, a guest comedian, had one of the funniest jokes of the night, when he went in a routine of a pilot on a commercial airline. His soccer joke, with him imitating a soccer player, ended his set, and it was hilarious.”
Elvis also had his hands full as the writer, director and co-star of the hit web series The Dick & Jane Show!. The show took off right from the start and has millions of views. Elvis was a finalist in the NexTV competition for best new director for his work on The Dick & Jane Show!.
