Townsend Center for the Performing Arts: Main Stage
Carrollton, Georgia
Friday, 24 January 2020 - 7:30 PM
For one night only, Friday, January 24th, the LiveArt Gala presents A Night in Little Italy starring Joe Piscopo and his 9 piece band. Television, film, theater, night club - all arenas in which Piscopo has won the acclaim and affection of millions, proving to be one of show business’ brightest lights. After a career as a disc jockey and dinner-theater performer, Joe turned to comedy. He was chosen to join a new ensemble charged with a difficult task, replacing the original cast of Saturday Night Live. By the time he left the show, Joe had left his mark on the program and the nation.

His work on SNL naturally led to Hollywood, with starring roles in Wise Guys, with Danny DeVito, and Johnny Dangerously with Michael Keaton. Other film credits include Dead Heat, Sidekicks with Chuck Norris and a dramatic, critically acclaimed performance in Jonathan Parker’s Bartleby. Joe performed as the lead role of Jack Cosmo in the musical comedy How Sweet It Is with Paul Sorvino. Joe won acclaim for his dramatic guest-starring roles on the NBC drama Law and Order. Live performances have always been an important part of Joe’s career. He has long been one of America’s most popular comedy and concert entertainers, filling arenas and theatres from coast to coast. Experience an evening of laughs, stories and great music made famous by legendary Italian crooners.
