January 10, 2013 (Bayside, NY)— Rob Schneider—an Emmy-nominated actor, veteran of Saturday Night Live (SNL), seasoned movie star and uproarious comedian– has conquered and succeeded in just about every area of the entertainment industry. His famous impersonations, including Elvis Presley, Rick Dees, and Jeff Gillooly, as well as his hilarious observations on current events will be spot-lighted at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center (QPAC) on Sunday, January 27, at 8:00 p.m.
Schneider’s extensive resume includes his longtime partnership with Adam Sandler with whom he starred in 50 First Dates, The Longest Yard, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan and several other feature films. During his four seasons on SNL, he was nominated for an Emmy and a Peabody Award.
“Rob Schneider’s stand-up comedy is off the charts! This is the first time we’ve seen major excitement from the 20-40 somethings. It’s not easy for any of us to tear ourselves away from our IPADS, Smartphones, etc., but if anyone can bring out our tech savvy neighbors and turn this place into a party it’s Rob Schneider!” said Susan Agin, Executive and Artistic Director, Queensborough Performing Arts Center. Opening for Schneider is the very funny (New York native) Ted Alexandro.
