Now in its 20th year, Actorfest is expanding into new markets and is excited to be holding a mega event this year in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on May 5th!

Actorfest, produced by Back Stage, is a one-day event providing performers the unique opportunity to embrace free-flowing and honest advice from agents, casting directors and successful actors and actresses.

The Geator with the Heater, The Boss with the Hot Sauce, describes only one man, Jerry Blavat. Jerry’s career started on American Bandstand in Philadelphia, went national with his own dance shows and has held faithful radio listeners and club goers spellbound for decades. His energy lights up a room and his decades of community service make Jerry a true Broadcast Pioneer. The term Legend truly fits Jerry Blavat because he has made his mark in TV, radio, nightclubs, films and now as author of You Only Rock Once (Running Press).
