Saturday Night Live Alumni: An Intimate Evening with Joe Piscopo – Songs/Stories/Sinatra

In 1980, Joe Piscopo was chosen to join a newly formed ensemble (along with Eddie Murphy!) and charged with one of the most difficult tasks in TV history, replacing the original cast of Saturday Night Live.  By the time he left the show in 1985, Joe had left his mark on the program, thanks to his wide range of hilarious original characters and celebrity impersonations, from The Sports Guy and Doug Whiner to David Letterman and, of course, Frank Sinatra (who endorsed Joe’s portrayal of him, referring to Joe as “The VICE-Chairman of the Board”).

ABOUT THE SHOW

Joe brought down the house at his last appearance at Lannie’s in August 2012.  He had 2 sold out nights and non-stop standing ovations.  His humor, warmth and talent are a given, but on top of that, we all fell in love with him…he’s just an all around great guy!

He’s back!  This time with a more intimate, up-close performance.  He will tell stories of his life in show biz (and about some of those folks he worked closely with) sing songs, and bring his inimitable Sinatra to life (Sinatra himself said it was the BEST impersonation of him EVER!).

Joe Piscopo is one of those rare talents who can “do it all.”  His shows and performances are nothing short of brilliant.  We all know what a terrific comic and impressionist Joe is, but I bet you didn’t know what a great singer and musician he is.

Television may have served him well in gaining a certain amount of notoriety, but it didn’t do him justice in displaying the breadth of his abilities.

Joe will be backed by a trio of talented musicians led by Lannie Garrett’s band leader and pianist, Justin Adams.  This will be a great night out for anyone, but especially for those that want to see one of those rare, old-school performers — one of those who: “can do it all” up close in our intimate showroom.

MORE ABOUT JOE

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). Other film credits include:  DEAD HEAT, SIDEKICKS, and the independent feature films, TWO BITS AND PEPPER, Roger Corman’s, DEMOLITION DAY and a dramatic, critically acclaimed performance in Jonathan Parker’s BARTLEBY.

Piscopo has long been one of America’s most popular comedy concert attractions, filling arenas and casino showrooms from coast to coast and in Canada (including the prestigious Montreal Jazz Festival!).  Joe tours with his own original Big Band tribute to Frank Sinatra, as well as his multimedia comedy show.

The Legendary Mother Folkers! Reunion Show

August 11, 2012
8:00 pm

The Mother Folkers (the most carefully pronounced name in show business) are a gang of gals that have been packing Colorado concert halls and nightclubs for over 25 years.

Known affectionately as the “MOFOS,” these gals offer up tight (and beautiful) vocal harmonies, superb musicianship and a GREAT live show.  Their performances are diverse and eclectic as they swing, bop, pop, croon, and belt through a repertoire of songs from Motown to DooWop, Gospel, Celtic, Blues and more. You’ll be treated to mostly original songs written by the band members themselves and you’ll also hear favorites by Joni Mitchell, Marcia Ball, James Taylor, Michelle Shocked, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and much more.

Each musician leads a song and creates their own unique arrangement AND these gals play instruments to boot!  Saxophone, mandolin, stand-up bass, hammer dulcimer, guitar, harmonica, banjo—

COME ON!  This is real deal talent!

After a 10 year hiatus, the MOFOS are back as strong as ever. They’ve been selling out concerts across the front range and now we have ‘em for ONE NIGHT ONLY at Lannie’s.

You will love their charisma and sense of fun and we promise they will have you stomping your feet and clapping along–they’ve been known to bring audiences to their feet over and over again.

THE MOFOS ARE:
Ellen Audley
Bonnie Carol
Julie Hoest
Ellen Klaver
Rebecca Leonard
Eileen Niehouse
Suzy Nelson
Pamela Robinson
Deborah Schmidt-Lobis
Mary Stribling
and daughter of original member, Kathi DeFrancis, daughter (DoFo!) Angie DeFrancis

ENJOY THIS SELECTION OFF THEIR ALBUM “THE MOTHER FOLKERS Alive at 25″

The Kinsey Sicks: New show! ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION: Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet

THE KINSEY SICKS return to Denver with their NEW Show -

ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION: KINSEY SICKS FOR PRESIDENT!

In ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION: KINSEY SICKS FOR PRESIDENT, the girls assault all the senses in this musical show, treating audiences to an evening of politics, personal revelations, social critique, sexual foibles and plain old raunch – all in glorious four-part harmony!  According to The Kinsey Sicks, the show is an intimate evening in which the audience can enjoy the dragapella divas “without the constraints of plot, the shackles of good taste, the false god of talent — or the illusion of refunds.”

The Kinsey Sicks promise you that you will not be disappointed. You’ll be appalled, but not disappointed.

ABOUT THE KINSEY SICKS

A sensation, The Kinsey Sicks has a phenomenal performance record that includes starring in their own Off-Broadway show at New York’s legendary Studio 54 and headlining an extended run in Las Vegas.  They were also the subject of two feature films, released seven albums, and have made appearances throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia.  They hardly need an introduction,  for over 16 years America’s Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet has served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing arts centers, music venues and comedy festivals in every kind of town you can imagine, in over 40 states!  Their award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire and over-the-top drag have earned The Kinsey Sicks a diverse and devoted following.

As the Washington Post says, “If you haven’t made the acquaintance of the Kinsey Sicks, it’s high time you did.”  Spawned in San Francisco 17 years ago, the Kinsey Sicks combine rich, four-part harmony, biting satire and over-the-top drag.  They have performed in 40 states, Mexico, Canada, Australia and Europe.  Billboard Magazine calls them “one act that should not be missed” and the New York Times has praised their “voices sweet as birdsong.”
