American Idol Appearance
Falber appeared on the show on January 26 2005. At that time he lived in Casper, Wyoming. Audience members were first introduced to his character antics when he impersonated Scooby-Doo in the American Idol confessional. During his audition he sang I Just Can't Wait to Be King from Disney's animated film The Lion King. The judges were amused partly because of the absurdity of his song selection and partly because he was one of the better voices they had heard in Las Vegas. They decided he was not for the show and encouraged him to pursue musical theatre.
The exposure from the show turned out to have a positive effect for Falber's career. He initially gained much recognition on the American Idol message boards. Most people agreed that he had a strong voice and eventually the exposure got him work in Las Vegas. He has performed at Lake Las Vegas, Hard Rock Cafe, Bellagio and other local Las Vegas venues.
