MY BIG FAT ITALIAN COMEDY FESTIVAL

Join us for 3 Unforgettable Nights of Comedy this Summer!

Joe DeVito Thursday July 18 @ 8PM

Whether taking on relationships, his Italian-American family, or current events, Joe DeVito’s dead-on timing, unexpected twists and sheer flights of lunacy make him a favorite at the top comedy clubs in New York City and venues across the USA.

Joe has appeared on television more than 150 times, including Comedy Central, The Late Late Show (CBS), Last Comic Standing (NBC), AXS-tv’s Gotham Comedy Live, Comics Unleashed, E! Network, CNN, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, and more. He’s also been a regular panelist on FOX News Channel’s Red Eye, Kennedy, and The Greg Gutfeld Show, discussing current events with a satirical bent.

As a writer, Joe has contributed to Maxim Magazine, MTV, and the award-winning film Super Size Me. The Montreal Gazette rated his performance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival “9.5 out of 10.”

Joe’s albums “First Date with Joe DeVito” and “Three’s Comedy” are in regular rotation on Spotify and Sirius XM satellite radio.

Tammy Pescatelli – Friday July 19 @ 8PM

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

“Tammy Pescatelli’s After School Special”, her new special, was filmed in early 2018, it was a highly anticipated follow up to Tammy’s award winning one hour Netflix special, “Finding the Funny.”

Tammy has had recent big appearances on The View, Guy’s Grocery Games:Comics Compete and The Howard Stern Show and her being chosen by Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg to be a part of their Dirty, Sexy, Funny franchise that included a hilarious all-female slate of standup comedians comedy special on EPIX/ Hulu, a touring show and a pilot for A&E.

With a slew of other accolades under her belt – including co- creating, executive producing, writing and starring in her own reality show, A Stand-Up Mother, on the WeTV Network – Tammy has appeared on a number of television shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (twice), A&E’s Donnie Loves Jenny(twice), 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 that won that year’s Comedy Central’s Standup Showdown, and many, many more.

Tammy’s career jumpstarted after appearing – and being one of the Final 5 – on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Her season played out to more than 17 million viewers, garnering her a mass of loyal new fans that found themselves alongside the others she had created by years of touring the comedy. It solidified her as one of the sharpest women in the comedy world!

Also a regular on USO Comedy tours, Tammy is honored and humbled to have been privileged to have entertained our troops all over the world. She currently continues to tour and sell-out shows around the country. Tammy is also signed on to star in an independent film this summer.

Rocky LaPorte Saturday July 20 @ 8PM

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 just recently appeared on on the season 8 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing! Rocky received 5th 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 has been seen in two Tim Allen movies – Crazy on the Outside and The Shaggy Dog.

Rocky traveled with Drew Carey to Iraq to entertain the troops and was seen on the Showtime special Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie. Rocky has filmed his own Comedy Central Presents special and was voted the network’s second most popular comedian in a nationwide poll. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and appeared on A&E‘s Evening At The Improv and VH1‘s Stand-Up Spotlight, along with sitcom appearances on Cheers and his own NBC pilot called the Rocky LaPorte Show.

Rocky has opened for the likes of Garry Shandling, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Louie Anderson, Hootie and the Blowfish and the Righteous Brothers, just to name a few. His clean, blue-collar style of comedy continues to increase in popularity as he travels the country.
