JOE PISCOPO IN JUPITER TO BENEFIT YOUTH!February 17, 2009 (Jupiter, FL) - Joe Piscopo, a Saturday Night Live cast member from the 80's, will be performing a benefit concert at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Monday, March 23, 2009 at 7:30pm for the Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA). This show will be filled with comedy, impersonations and music.
This benefit concert will be a tribute to "Ole Blue Eyes" (Frank Sinatra). Joe tours with his own original Big Band tribute to Frank Sinatra, as well as his multimedia comedy show and also starred on Broadway as disc jockey Vince Fontaine in Grease! Live performances have always been an important part of Joe's career. He has long been one of America's most popular comedy concert performers, filling arenas and casino showrooms from coast to coast and in Canada. (Including the prestigious Montreal Jazz Festival!)
In 1980, he was chosen to join a newly formed ensemble charged with one of the most difficult tasks in TV history- replacing the original cast of Saturday Night Live. His work on SNL naturally led to Hollywood, and starring roles in such smash hits as Wise Guys (with Danny DeVito) and Johnny Dangerously (with Michael Keaton). Joe Piscopo is an all-around performer! For over 25 years, he has proven to be one of show business' brightest lights.
