Mo Rocca Headed to Ridgefield Playhouse, 5/3
Having gotten his television start on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, where he was a regular correspondent for five years, humorist, journalist and actor Mo Rocca is best known for his offbeat news reports and satirical commentary. Currently a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood, Rocca is also a panelist on NPR's hit weekly quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! and the host and creator of the Cooking Channel's My Grandmother's Ravioli, in which he learns to cook from grandmothers and grandfathers across the country. Mo will be the featured guest in an insightful and humorous conversation at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. After the on-stage interview, the audience gets to ask Mo what they have always wanted to...on most anything! Bissell House (378 Main St., Ridgefield) will pour a free glass of house wine or draught beer with dinner the night of this show when tickets/stubs are presented. This event is part of The Moffly Media Entertaining Conversations and Clark Construction Comedy Series and is a Ridgefield Library @ Ridgefield Playhouse Event. Media sponsor is WSHU.
Mo Rocca also spent four seasons as a correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Rocca's latest project, Electoral Dysfunction, "is a feature length documentary exploring voting in America and the consequences of a Constitution that doesn't include the right to vote. (Really.)". The former president and author of Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Show, Rocca's stage credits include his roles as Vice Principal Douglas Panch on Broadway in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and as Doody on the Southeast Asian Tour of Grease.
