Mo Rocca got his television start on “The Daily Show.” Today, he stars in “My Grandmother’s Ravioli” on the Cooking Channel and is a correspondent on “CBS Sunday Morning.”
He took time from his busy schedule to answer our three questions.
1. If you could work with anybody in the comedy field living or dead, who would it be and why?
“Wow, that’s a great question. Well, I love the movie ‘What’s Up, Doc?’ Streisand is so funny in it because she had a really good director in Peter Bogdanovich. I wish I could be in a Peter Bogdanovich movie. I love ‘Last Picture Show,’ but [I’d want to be in] a funny one like ‘What’s Up, Doc?’ and just have a master like that directing.
I just wish that I could do some sort of bit with Donald O’Connor. I wouldn’t be able to keep up, but I just love Donald O’Connor so much. I wish Donald O’Connor would come back to life and start a theater camp, and I would be the first enrollee.”
