Times Square Security Guard by day and Opera Singer by night, Adelmo Guidarelli, has completed taping his segment on the E! Entertainment Television reality program Bank of Hollywood produced by Ryan Seacrest.
The premiere episode of Bank of Hollywood will air Monday, December 14, at 10/9 Central. His performance of Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, which included someone getting a pie in the face, received a standing ovation from the audience. The judges could not be heard over the cheers and applause from the crowd. This new reality show features contestants pitching their dreams to a panel of celebrity judges in hopes of seeing them come true.

Guidarelli traveled to Hollywood to film the segment in a whirlwind trip this fall. “I enjoyed meeting the celebrity judges and the producers. The production staff members were all so friendly and hard working. It was a positive experience and a highlight I will remember throughout my career,” Guidarelli said. “Bank of Hollywood is just the beginning of my dream. I am determined to begin touring the US with Operation Adelmo very soon and become a house act at a top-level casino in Las Vegas. Even if I have to perform in each home in America, I will make Operation Adelmo a household name one living room at a time!”
Guidarelli is the star of a one-man comedy show titled OPERATION ADELMO, written and directed by Mike Wills. Wills has worked with several cutting edge icons such as Blue Man Group, Penn & Teller, MTV Networks, and Fuse TV. As well as directing Broadway actors James Gandolfini (of The Sopranos) and Liev Schreiber. They have been successfully performing and developing this original production Off-Broadway and in clubs and small venues around the New York area, including a few opportunities in Las Vegas and Rome, Italy.
OPERATION ADELMO takes you on a song filled journey into Guidarelli’s world of music and mayhem – a world that critics have compared to Victor Borge and Anna Russell. On January 23, 2010 G&W Entertainment will be presenting an intimate performance of OPERATION ADELMO at the world famous Duplex, New York’s legendary piano bar and cabaret located in the heart of Greenwich Village.
