Rocky LaPorte, a former Chicago truck driver and dockworker was voted Best Male Comedian at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival, no small feat considering the winner is determined by votes from the top 40 comedy clubs around the country. Rocky's star has continued to rise - after Tim Allen saw Rocky perform on The Tonight Show he proclaimed Rocky his "favorite new comic" and cast him in his hit movie, "The Shaggy Dog". Rocky visited Iraq along with Drew Carey and the trip has been turned into a Showtime movie called "Patriot Act: a Jeffrey Ross Home Movie" which is currently running on Showtime. Rocky has opened for Louie Anderson, Garry Shandling, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Hootie and the Blowfish and the Righteous Brothers, just to name a few.
Gary Cannon moved to San Francisco and quickly became a favorite among the local comics and audiences. After developing his style and confidence, Gary moved to Los Angeles and immediately began working some of the top clubs in southern California, including the Hollywood Improv. He has been a stand-up comic for more than 10 years. During his career he has worked with Bob Saget, Dana Carvey and David Alan Grier and has appeared on Comedy Central, VH1, the Travel Channel and NBC.
