Super Mario

Not many comedians can pull off impersonations of Liza Minnelli and Bruce Springsteen, but such is the range of Mario Cantone. A Tony-winning Sex and the City alum who brings Broadway panache to his standup comedy routines, Cantone's versatility is without peer -- as evidenced by his dead-on skewering of Michael McDonald on The View or his take on Jim Morrison singing Christmas carols in his one-man show, "Laugh Whore." Onstage, he's like a gay, Latin Robin Williams, a whirling dervish of mad energy. He performs at 8 p.m. Thursday at Hard Rock Live, located at 1 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Tickets cost $39 to $69. Call 954-797-5531, or visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com.
