Sixties British pop crooner Engelbert Humperdinck will take the stage at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College Feb. 28 at 8 pm.

Humperdinck, 67, will perform many of the romantic songs that have made him a (difficult-to-pronounce) household name over the last 30-something years, including "After the Lovin’," "Release Me" and "Quando Quando Quando."

Born Arnold George Dorsey, Humperdinck got his start in showbiz doing impersonations of actor Jerry Lewis.

His comic aspirations asserted themselves again when he changed his stagename from Gerry Dorsey to Engelbert Humperdinck, the name of the Austrian composer who wrote "Hansel and Gretel."

(At press time it could not be confirmed if The Hump’s set list will also include the hilarious "Lesbian Seagull," the song he recorded for the 1996 film "Beavis and Butt-head Do America.")

Humperdinck will perform at the Walt Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College, 2900 Campus Road at Hillel Place (one block from the junction of Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues) in Midwood. Tickets are $75, $65, $60 and $55. For more information, call (718) 951-4500.
