COMEDY @ The Waterhouse welcomes the hilariously understated comedian ROCKY LAPORTE. Opening up for Rocky from WEEK's "You Gotta Eat" is EDGAR SANDOVAL!


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 having 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 has been seen in two Tim Allen movies – Crazy on the Outside and The Shaggy Dog.


Rocky 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 the network’s second most popular comedian in a nationwide poll. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, appeared on A&E‘s Evening At The Improv, VH1‘s Stand-Up Spotlight, sitcom appearances on Cheers, and even had his own NBC pilot called the Rocky LaPorte Show.


Rocky is currently working often with the stellar Ron White and has opened for the likes of Garry Shandling, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Louie Anderson, Hootie and the Blowfish and the Righteous Brothers, just to name a few.


Admission is $25pp and seating is reserved. The bar will open and seating will begin 1 hour before the show at 6:30p with the show starting at 7:30p. The show will last approximately 90 minutes.


Tables seat 8 people and will be assigned based upon the order of purchase. If you are joining a larger group or want to be seated with another purchaser specifically, please indicate at the time of purchase in the "Notes to Seller" section who you would like to join.
