A Tribute to Joan Rivers

June 8 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Mansion of Saratoga kicks off its 801 Concert Series this summer with a tribute to Joan Rivers on what would be the caustic comic’s 90th birthday.

On Thursday, June 8 at 8 p.m., award winning actor and celebrity impersonator Joe Posa will perform as Rivers in his heartfelt hilarious 90-minute comedy concert tribute “The B**ch is Back for Her 90th Birthday!”

“Joe was Joan’s favorite impersonator. It’s not just the clothes, the voice and the rapid fire jokes—all of which he gets perfect,” said Jeff Wodicka, managing partner of The Mansion of Saratoga. “He truly inhabits Joan’s very-naughty-but-so-much-fun persona. This show is not for the politically correct, the weak-kneed or children.”

Posa began performing as Rivers in 2004 and first met her in 2006 while he was impersonating her at a corporate event in Houston, Texas. In a planned schtick, Posa first took the stage to do his act when suddenly the real Joan Rivers, who was hired to be the evening’s main performer, appeared to chase him off, barking “Get off my stage, b**ch.”

After that show the two stayed in touch over the next decade, last meeting in July 2014, two months before she died at age 81.
