Rocky LaPorte Comedy Concert Featuring Susan Rice<\/p>\r\n

With his unmistakable accent and hilarious yet endearing delivery, comedian Rocky LaPorte is becoming more well-known by the day.

He was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing last season.<\/p>\r\n

The feature comic will be Susan Rice, a veteran comedian who prefers to be considered the “Goddess of all that is Funny”.<\/p>\r\n
