26 Years in Comedy

Rocky’s backstory showed his huge family– he’s got four kids, and ten grandkids. He revealed that he’s been doing comedy for 26 years and looking for a break that could get him off the road. He got a standing ovation on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he’s had a Comedy Central half hour special, and appeared on FOX’s Comic Strip Live, Caroline’s Comedy Hour on A&E, Stand Up Spotlight on VH1, and he’s opened for Louie Anderson, Garry Shandling, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Hootie and the Blowfish and even the Righteous Brothers. His daughter said he’s all heart.

Heard during his LCS set: “I had to go to court on Tuesday. My lawyer don’t show up. I end up in front of this judge. I dont know what the hell he’s talking about. He goes, do you have counsel? I go.. I got a stick shift. He goes, what the hell are you talking about? I go…I dunno. Can I buy a vowel? He said you should buy a thesaurus. I said they’re extinct.”

What the Judges Said: Roseanne: “You could sustain a wave of laughs after laughs after laughs.” Russell: “I literally feel like I could listen to you for the next hour or two.” Keenan: “Your rhythm had great sarcasm to it.”
