Starring Tammy Pescatelli and Rocky LaPorte

Divertiti! That’s “have a great time” in Italian, but you can fuhgettaboutit, because you’re guaranteed a night of huge laughs thanks to the talents of top-rated stand-up comedians Tammy Pescatelli and Rocky LaPorte.

Tammy Pescatelli 

Arguably one of the hardest working women in comedy today, Tammy Pescatelli brings brassy sexiness with a female voice and witty sarcasm to her audiences. She more than holds her own on the topics of sports, television, dating and family life using her signature tongue-in-cheek humor. Tammy is one of the only female comedians who is relatable to every audience member, male or female—after seeing her perform, nearly everyone wishes she was their best friend or sister!

With a slew of other accolades under her belt, Tammy has appeared on a number of television shows like: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, A&E’s Donnie Loves Jenny, Fox’s Redeye, Bravo’s Rocco’s Dinner Party, CBS’s The Talk, NBC’s Last Comic Standing: The Best of the Best, her own Comedy Central Present Special and many more.

Tammy’s career was jumpstarted after appearing—and being one of the final five—on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, garnering her a mass of loyal new fans alongside the many others she had created after years of touring comedy clubs across America.

Tammy is honored and humbled to have entertained our troops all over the world. She has even been featured in I am Battle Comic, a documentary about comedians who have entertained the troops on USO Comedy Tours.

Tammy continues to sell out shows around the country while preparing for a new one-hour special, Tammy Pescatelli’s After School Special: Don’t Engage The Crazy, set to film later this year.

Rocky LaPorte 

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, and he only just recently appeared on season eight of NBC’s Last Comic Standing—receiving fifth place out of 10 contestants. A former Chicago truck driver and dock worker, Rocky has 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 can be seen in two Tim Allen movies, Crazy on the Outside and The Shaggy Dog.
