Raue Center for the Arts is hosting another wonderful installment of Lucy's LIVE! Starring comedian Rocky LaPorte, and featuring comedian Lance Richards, Lucy's LIVE will delight live and virtual audiences beginning at 7:00 p.m. on September 12th.
Rocky LaPorte offers an everyman, streetwise style of comedy in his trademark Brooklyn accent, and has become one of the most sought-after comedians in the country. He recently appeared on season 8 of NBC's Last Comic Standing, winning 5th place! LaPorte has appeared on Showtime's The Godfathers of Comedy, and has played roles in two Tim Allen movies, Crazy on the Outside and The Shaggy Dog.
“ We're so proud to welcome Rocky LaPorte back to Raue ’ s stage," said Richard Kuranda, Executive Director of Raue Center. "Fresh off the heels of his Comedy Central Special, Rocky brings a wonderful way of making us laugh about our current quality of life. I'm a huge fan because of his work with the USO, Police, and First Responders. He is sure to make everyone laugh - and God knows we need it!"
Lance Richards, a Chicago native, first took the stage as a student at Columbia College, and in 2008 he began winning numerous regional comedy competitions. Richards' animated style has made him very popular on both the college and club circuits. He has performed all over the country, from The Comedy Store in Los Angeles to Zanies in Chicago.
Due to official state mandates, the performance will be capped at 50 people. Patrons can buy up to 4 tickets per live ticket order. Audience members will be spread out to maintain safe social distance, and masks are required when entering the space and throughout your stay.
