ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) – It’s an opening night tonight in Atlantic City for “Club Piscopo,” the new headliner at Resorts Hotel and Casino with a nostalgic twist.

With the arrival this summer of “Club Piscopo,” the star of stage, screen, and TV is reviving what he calls a show business classic at the Jersey shore.

“I’ve always wanted to open up a nightclub a retro-style nightclub along the lines of the Latin Casino or the 500-Club or Copacabana in New York where you have a key guy that’s your host and then you bring in different acts every week,” Joe Piscopo says.

He will treat with his own talents  – yes he’ll do Sinatra and The Boss – plus you’ll meet new acts including comedians and jazz artists, just like it was years ago at the Copacabana, but with the name of “Club Piscopo” at Resorts in Atlantic City.
