Rocky LaPorte: Comedian For Hire

Back in my younger days, when I was going to comedy clubs more often, I saw Rocky LaPorte.  I forget the details, but I remember seeing him perform.  I know he wasn't the headliner, but he was very funny.
Flash forward 20ish years.  We were in Las Vegas and decided to see Marc Price (of Family Ties fame).  I was shocked when the announcer introduced Rocky LaPorte as the opening act.
Once again, LaPorte was really entertaining.  In fact, he was so darn funny, he caused me to take a really bad photo (see below).  Obviously, we did not use a digital camera or I would have taken another.  I blame LaPorte for making me laugh so hard.
LaPorte is a comic lifer.  He has a long resume of standup, as well as movie and television roles.  You probably will recognize him, even if the name isn't familiar.  Either way, the guy is funny and I recommend anyone catching his act when possible.
You can get more info on him at  Check out his appearance schedule and then check out an appearance.  You will love him!
