An impressionist, humorist, and singer, Firestone performs his multimedia review in Las Vegas at major sporting events, meetings, formal events, and conventions throughout the world, and has appeared on such shows as Late Night with David Letterman, Later with Bob Costas, Nightline, and Larry King Live. He has shared the bill with Frank Sinatra, Michael McDonald, country superstars Wynonna and Reba McEntire, Gladys Knight, the Four Tops, Frankie Valli, and Josh Groban. Firestone recently released his first album, Another Voice, produced by the Grammy-nominated legendary fusion jazz band Hiroshima.

Firestone has performed for hundreds of corporate clients, including AT&T, Cadillac, Quaker Oats, Pepsi, Nike, Toyota, Avia, General Foods, Delta Airlines, Mayflower Movers, Sun Computers, Prudential, Thrifty Car Rental, Northwest Airlines, Russell Athletic, Fujitsu, Anheuser Busch, The Sports Authority, OfficeMax, Chevron, Transamerica, Sara Lee, Frito-Lay, Pontiac, and Quaker State.
