Due to the success of last years show “My Big Funny Peter”, local comedian Peter Bisuito has decided to offer his comedy styling’s for Buffalo’s Thanksgiving weekend once again. This time as part of a fundraiser for Roswell Park with sponsorship by the Buffalo Bills Cheerleaders; The Jills.
On November 26th 2011 local comedian Peter Bisuito performed the biggest show of his life. He sold out 350 seats and was even turning people away at the door due to lack of room in the ballroom of a high-end banquet facility in Hamburg. Because of this he decided to rent a bigger theater this year, Babeville’s Asbury Hall, a 600-seat venue owned by Ani DiFranco in downtown Buffalo. This time as a fundraiser for Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Peter will donate proceeds to Roswell in memory of his late 35-year-old sister on the ten-year anniversary of her passing from cervical cancer.
Peter’s show boasts an opening act by a professional award-winning Kathy Griffin impersonator from Disneyland, a professional host and emcee from Toronto and a special appearance and dance performance by The Buffalo Bills Cheerleaders! (The Jills)_ Followed by 80 minutes of Peter’s stand-up comedy!
Peter has been making audiences laugh for over 20 years. He has performed in community and professional theater in Western, NY and Los Angeles. He had the pleasure of working as a crowd warmer for celebrity appearances including Shirley MacLaine, Don Knotts, Lou Ferrigno, Nancy Cartwright and several others. Peter also entered Oprah Winfrey’s nation wide contest in finding America’s newest talk show host. Out of 25,000 submissions, he made the top 20. Although he did not make the top 10, his audition video was aired on the Oprah Winfrey show December 30th 2010. He says he would like to legally change his name to “As seen on Oprah, Peter Bisuito.”
My Big Funny Peter promises to be a night of many laughs. Although all VIP seats have been sold out, there is room still available in general seating.
