An obsessive-compulsive, socially awkward, tolerably attractive guy sings and tells jokes…and he has a twin. Donning sweater vests and each armed with a razor-sharp wit, The Rescignos are like Cain and Abel but with more singing and less fratricide.
The Rescignos Variety Show
From time to time, The Rescigno boys join forces with a talented ensemble of actors for The Rescignos Variety Show, an evening of hilarious sketch comedy, jaunty musical numbers, and sweater vests.
Born in New York City, Paul and Robbie Rescigno are actors who grew up in southern Delaware, spending most of their childhood watching classic television on Nick at Nite. Both attended Syracuse University where they appeared together in productions of Twelfth Night, Kiss Me, Kate, and the premiere of their variety show. While in college, both studied for a semester at Shakespeare’s Globe in London. The two appeared in the feature film Tenure, starring Luke Wilson, Gretchen Mol and David Koechner. When they are not performing, their days are spent working in television. Robbie has worked at MSNBC’s Morning Joe as well as The Nate Berkus Show, while Paul currently works at The Late Show with David Letterman.
