Joe Piscopo
Date of Birth
Jun 17, 1951
Birth Place:
Passaic, NJ


Best remembered for his work on the long-running sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live between 1980 and 1984, comedian Joe Piscopo has also had a sporadic movie career. Heralding from Passaic, NJ, he started out in standup and also worked in regional and improvisational theater before joining the show. On SNL, Piscopo was famed for his dead-on parody of Frank Sinatra and other celebrities ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Leonard Nimoy to Barbra Streisand. He made his feature-film debut (not counting an unbilled appearance in Dino De Laurentis' King Kong) in Johnny Dangerously (1984). ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
