Details of Joe Piscapo and the Ticket Luck value
An American comedian and actor, Joe Piscapo is best known for his work on Saturday Night Live. He has toured biggest Venues around the world, gathered a satisfied fan-base and is currently working on his up coming stand-up events.
Piscapo was born on June 17, 1951 in Passaic, New Jersey. He attended West Essex High School and joined the drama club the Masquers.
While at the drama club, he developed a reputation for never playing a part the way it was written. In the late 1970s, Joe went into stand-up comedy, becoming a cast member of the short-lived sketch-comedy series called Madhouse Brigade.
In the spring of 1980, a show called Saturday Night Live went through major upheaval when all the writers, major producers, and cast members had left the project. Joe Piscapo was approached to sign as a contract player for Saturday Night Live.
The all-new cast bombed with critics and fanatics with the exceptions of Piscapo and Eddie Murphy. The two were also the only two cast members to be kept when Dick Ebersol took over the show. One of Piscapo's more successful bits on SNL was his sports commentary on the Weekend Update portion of the show.
The segment SNL Newsbreak would lead by a series of rhyming or otherwise associated words, rather than a sentence. One example surrounded one of Muhammad Ali's last bouts during the 1980s is stated as The big story, Muhammad Ali! Last night...fight...drama...Bahama...LOST! and news about Yankees as: The big story! Baseball! Yankees!
Billy Martin hired! The big question: When will he be fired? His sports reports impressed NBC network officials who allowed him to continue his persona on NBC's Sports world program in the early 1980s.
During his time on Saturday Night Live, Joe Piscapo recorded the single The Honeymooners Rap in which he impersonated Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden of The Honeymooners. The Honeymooners Rap also appeared on Piscapo's 1985 comedy album entitled New Jersey.
In 1984, Joe Piscapo left Saturday Night Live and appeared in a few successful films such as Johnny Dangerously and in a couple episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Around that time, Piscapo was best known for his boorish impressions of celebrities such as Frank Sinatra. Joe also had his own HBO comedy special.
