Joe Piscopo, David Brenner, Fred Travalena coming to Show Palace

Comedian Joe Piscopo returns to the Show Palace on March 30.

HUDSON — After making his first performance at the Show Palace Dinner Theatre back in January 2007, comedian Joe Piscopo told the owners he would love to come back for another show. The Saturday Night Live alum said he enjoyed the smaller venue and the wonderfully responsive audience.

Now he's making good on that offer.

Through its partnership with Ruth Eckerd Hall, the Show Palace announced Friday that Piscopo will do another show March 30.

The Show Palace will also host comedian, writer and political pundit David Brenner on March 16, with actor Joe Bronzi opening the show. And Fred Travalena, an entertainer, impressionist and comic, will perform Jan. 19.

The Show Palace struck a deal with Ruth Eckerd Hall two years ago to become a "satellite venue." The Show Palace gets access to big-name acts, and Ruth Eckerd can offer performers a medium-sized venue if its other halls are booked or not the right size.

Ruth Eckerd Hall has a 2,200-seat theater and a 180-seat studio, while the Show Palace seats about 400 and offers a meal with the show.

Tickets for these shows go on sale Friday, at $49 for Piscopo and $59 for Brenner or Travalena. VIP seating packages for all three performances are available for $175. All prices include a buffet meal.

Tickets may be purchased through the Show Palace Dinner Theatre Box Office at 16128 U.S. 19 in Hudson, or by calling (727) 863-7949 or toll-free at 1-888-655-7469.
