NorthFork Theatre At Westbury

Rickles,Danza, Aug. 6, Aug. 9

Live Naton presents Don Rickles and Tony Danza at the North Fork Theatre at Westbury on Sunday, August 6 at 7 p.m. and Wednesday, August 9 at 8 p.m.

Don Rickles is one of comedy's most famous funnymen. For over 45 years he has appeared in top showrooms in Atlantic City, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas and has been a favorite of Long Island audiences with his numerous sold out appearances at Westbury. He is regarded among the world's top entertainers.

Throughout his career, Rickles has been highly visible on television, as well as in theatrical motion pictures, including appearances in "Casino," which starred Robert De Niro and was directed by Martin Scorsese. He also appeared in the computer animated features "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2" for Walt Disney Pictures, and the now cult classic, "Kelly's Heroes." He has starred in live stage productions and, along the way, has had two best-selling albums including "Don Rickles Speaks" which was recently rereleased on CD by Warner Brothers and JMG (the Jewish Music Group).

Perhaps best known for his loveable sitcom personas, Tony Danza is indisputably one of America's most popular performers and is a song and dance man at heart. Having starred on some of television's most beloved and long-running series, Danza has also established himself as a veritable stage and screen star, as well as a respected producer. On stage, he received raves for his portrayal of the bartender in the Broadway revival of Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh." On the small screen, Tony Danza credits include his five year run on "Taxi," eight seasons starring in the ABC comedy series "Who's the Boss?" and two seasons in "Family Law." He has starred in numerous made for television and cable movies, and has hosted his own talk show, "The Tony Danza Show." On the big screen, Danza starred in "Angels In the Outfield," "She's Out of Control," and many more roles in feature films including last year's "Crash." In 2002, Danza recorded the full length album, The House That I Live In that featured the title cut as well as "Pennies From Heaven," "I'll Be Seeing You" and "God Bless America."
