March 24 @ 8p
Tickets start at $25. Get tickets here.

Raue Center is excited to welcome Steve Cochran back to their stage along with John DaCosse and Rocky LaPorte for an evening of hilarious comedy!

A radio personality for over 30 years, Steve Cochran has hosted his own show from coast to coast, settling in Chicago in the late ’90s. Steve has also been an actor in several films, including “Grumpy Old Men.” He also worked as as a writer for “Saturday Night Live.”

Throughout all of those years, Steve has performed stand-up comedy with many of the greats in the business. He loves getting out and doing live performances about 4 times a year including his annual “Steve Cochran New Year’s Eve Show,” now in its 17th year!

But what Steve is best at is hosting his own show. Since coming back to WGN and being named the host of the WGN Radio morning show from 6 am to 10, following in the “mic-checks” of such legends as Wally Phillips, Bob Collins and Spike O’Dell, Steve has brought the best morning talk show back to its rightful place at number one!

WGN Radio personality John DaCosse has developed a solid reputation nationwide. He has opened for big names like Ellen DeGeneres, George Lopez, Craig Ferguson and Billy Gardell and has appeared on NBC, Comedy Central and TBS. He has served as an audience warm-up for many TV shows including the Rosie O’Donnell and Oprah Winfrey shows. John can be seen at Zanies in the Chicagoland area, and all Funny Bone and Improv omedy clubs across the United States. He can also be heard, along with his character voices, as a regular on the Steve Cochran morning show on WGN Radio.

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! He appeared on on the season 8 of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” finishing in 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 appearing as 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.”
