‘Saturday Night Live’ Reunion in Atlantic City!
ATLANTIC CITY — A large audience gathered Thursday night at Atlantic City’s new night spot Club Piscopo, which opened over the July 4 holiday weekend at Resorts Casino Hotel. The draw was comedian Don Novello.
Who’s that? Well, if you’re old enough to remember the days before cell phones, laptop computers, and i-anything, you probably know Novello under his noms de stage Father Guido Sarducci.
Novello’s character dates back to the early 1970s and his very popular Father character made frequent appearances on NBC’s Saturday Night Live during the late 1970s. He was also a writer for SNL at one time.
Novello, as Father Guido Sarducci, is performing a four-night residency at Club Piscopo (July 14-17) and appears on stage with his fellow SNL comic Piscopo, who debuted on SNL on 1980 with Eddie Murphy.
