Rocky LaPorte’s appeal comes from his everyman, streetwise style of comedy. Delivering laughs in his trademark Brooklyn accent, he has become one of the most sought-after comedians in the country and was in the final 5 of Season 8 of Last Comic Standing. A former Chicago truck driver and dock worker, Rocky has accumulated a slew of performances throughout his career, including being a featured comic on Showtime’s The Godfathers of Comedy, a special starring five of America’s most hilarious Italian-American comics. On the big screen, he can be seen in movies including Crazy on the Outside and Shaggy Dog, both starring Tim Allen.
He has traveled with Drew Carey to Iraq to entertain the troops and was seen on the Showtime special Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie. Rocky has filmed his own Comedy Central Presents special and was voted Comedy Central‘s second most popular comedian in a nationwide poll. He has performed/appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, A&E’s Evening At The Improv and VH-1′s Stand-Up Spotlight and Cheers, as well as his own NBC pilot called the Rocky LaPorte Show. Rocky’s clean, blue-collar style of comedy continues to increase in popularity as he travels the country.
