Podcast #75: Rocky LaPorte/Rich Shydner

Rocky LaPorte is one of our favorite regulars at the Comedy Castle. His career has spanned four decades and he has seen and done it all. Tim Allen proclaimed him “the next big thing” after seeing Rocky on his first Tonight Show appearance.   A great comic and a great interview! Ritch Shydner caught the last big wave of the late 70’s early 80’s stand up comedy explosion.  Multiple appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson shot him into the upper echelon of comedy and show biz circles.  He is taking his incredible “History of Stand Up Comedy” multi-media presentation on the road and we are fortunate that he stopped by the Castle Podcast for one of our favorite interviews! Rocky appears this weekend on November 5th and 6th, with Rich Shydner’s “History of Stand Up Comedy” on Monday, November 8th.
