It's Mo . . . and it's free

Mo Rocca
Comedian Mo Rocca brings his straight-faced delivery to Stephens Auditorium Thursday, Sept. 4, for a free 8 p.m. show. Rocca perhaps is best known for his tongue-in-cheek reports as a news correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The program airs weeknights on the Comedy Central cable channel. Rocca and his Daily Show colleagues were named Rolling Stone magazine's "People of the Year" in 2000.

Rocca also appeared recently on VH1's I Love the '80s show. Other credits include regular slots on NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, and the Major League Baseball Web-radio show, World Domination w/ Larry & Mo, as well as frequent appearances on CNN and FoxNews.

Rocca has a B.A. from Harvard University and resides in New York City. His performance is Iowa State's annual free comedy show for the university community, sponsored by the Lectures Program to open fall semester.
