Dick Capri


Dick Capri has made millions of people laugh in a comedy career that has spanned two continents and every major entertainment medium and venue, including nightclubs, resorts, arenas, theaters, the Broadway stage, and national television. He has worked with such major stars as Tom Jones, Liza Minnelli, and Frank Sinatra.
In 1973, Mr. Capri broke into international prominence touring with Englebert Humperdink, performing at Radio City Music Hall and the Minskoff Theatre in New York, major resorts in Las Vegas, the Palladium in London, and a broadcast special for BBC. Mr. Capri made his Broadway debut in 1991 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, co-starring in the critically acclaimed Catskills on Broadway, which played to sold-out houses for 14 months and later toured nationally, leaving audiences roaring with laughter night after night.

He has appeared on many national television shows, including Good Morning America and the Charles Grodin and Sally Jessy Raphael shows. He has had the privilege of performing for Presidents Gerald Ford and George Bush. Mr. Capri writes most of his own material, mostly pulled from experiences on his travels. His unique style, featuring a measured and deliberate delivery, is crisp and topical. His mix of comedy and mime sets him distinctly apart from the traditional stand-up comic.
