Dave Zoran to bring the stand-up comedy of Rodney Dangerfield to the seventh annual library concert

Saturday evening, April 19 will see yet another great entertainer being brought back to life on the Tyrone Area High School auditorium stage.
The great stand-up comedy antics of none other than Rodney Dangerfield will bring laughter and memories to this year’s seventh annual Tyrone-Snyder Township Public Library Concert.
A very talented young man by the name of Dave Zoran will be delivering a great impersonator show featuring Rodney Dangerfield and the act that made him a comedic hit for so many years.
Dave Zoran is a graduate of Wayne State University with a degree in radio-television and film. He is honored to have been a part of the Marconi Award-winning Dick Purtan Show since 1992. In 2007, Purtan was inducted into the national Association of Broadcasting’s Hall of Fame.
Dave has performed many impersonations on stage throughout the years. Some of the most notable are Rodney Dangerfield, Johnny Carson, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Bob Hope, Regis Philbin, Jack Nicholson, Robin Williams, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokaw, to name a few.
Dave is also a winner of a national “CableAce” award for excellence in sports coverage, and has been a play-by-play announcer since 1984, for college and high school football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer and boxing.
One of Dave’s great thrills was being able to do his Rodney Dangerfield impersonation to none other than Rodney Dangerfield himself in Las Vegas. “After it was over, Rodney came up to me and said, ‘Not bad at all kid, good luck to you,’” shared Dave.
‘We are extremely pleased to have Dave join us for this year’s concert. We tried to take a step out of the box we have operated in these past six years by bringing in professional and high quality impersonators,” said library concert chairman, Chuck Banas. “People say they think it is going to be a nice change, and I have assured them that next year we will again be returning to what we have done best for the first six years with a national headlining group highlighting our show. April 19 will be a new experience and actually bring a bit of Vegas to us here in Tyrone. I know that everyone is going to have a terrific evening.”
This year’s concert is set for Saturday evening, April 19 at the Tyrone Area High School auditorium stage. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show will start promptly at 7 p.m. The evening will feature some unique and quality door prizes and a few raffle awarded items as well.
Tickets for the concert are still available at the following ticket locations: Bressler’s Food Mart and Sports, Kopp Drug and the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library, all located in Tyrone. Tickets may also be purchased or ordered over the telephone by calling a special ticket order phone line at 682-1017.
This year’s annual concert event now has the audience being able to imagine Cher, Buddy Holly, Gene Pitney and Rodney Dangerfield all spending a great time with scores of fun right here in Tyrone.
Next week, The Daily Herald will be featuring this year’s concert headline performer.
In addition, the Herald has also discovered that in two weeks from Saturday, a special announcement concerning this year’s show will be made.
It looks like the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library concert series has scored yet another major win for the library and the Tyrone area community.
