Cooper And Danza Appearing At Westbury

“What’s so funny about an Italian Christmas Eve?” Find out when Pat Cooper and Tony Danza usher in the holidays with an entertaining even-ing on Friday, December 14 at 8 p.m.

From his 1963 television appearance on "The Jackie Gleason Show" to his recent sold-out concert performances, Pasquale Caputo, aka Pat Cooper, continues to enthrall standing room only audiences with his lovable "comedic anger." For nearly four decades Pat has appeared on many stages, from comedy clubs to major theaters, including the legendary Copacabana, Westbury Music Theater, Trump Castle, Caesar's Palace, the MGM Grand Hotel, and Trop World. Throughout his long and lucrative career, Pat has had the opportunity to share the stage with such superstars as Jerry Lewis, Tony Bennett, Tom Jones, Paul Anka, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Englebert Humperdinck, Sammy Davis Jr. and the list goes on. Pat's humor also reaches the talk show audiences with his recurring and always successful appearances on "The Howard Stern Show," "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee," and "The Late Show with David Letterman." Pat's impeccable timing, comedic genius and commanding stage presence will always leave his sold-out audiences roaring!

Perhaps best known for starring on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series, including Taxi (1978–1983) and Who’s the Boss (1984– 1992), Tony Danza has also established himself as a stage and screen star, and he is indisputably one of America’s most iconic performers. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Danza received a wrestling scholarship to the University of Dubuque in Iowa, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in history education. Discovered at a boxing gymnasium in New York, Danza was ultimately cast in the critically acclaimed ABC series Taxi, earning him a place in television history. He followed Taxi with a starring role in the classic ABC comedy series Who’s the Boss?, which ran for eight seasons. Eventually Tony explored his love for the stage, and among his many stage credits is his exciting run on Broadway in Mel Brooks’s hit musical The Producers, playing Max Bialystock (2006– 2007), and his reprise of the role in the Las Vegas production at Paris Las Vegas (2007). For his theatrical debut in Wrong Turn at Lungfish (1993), he earned an Outer Critic’s Circle Award nomination. Other stage credits include the critically acclaimed The Iceman Cometh, opposite Kevin Spacey, Arthur Miller’s Tony Award–winning play A View from the Bridge, and I Remember You. Tony Danza is currently working on a new ABC sitcom entitled “The Guys” for his return to television in 2013.
