• Bobby Collins

  • Comedian Bobby Collins has distinguished himself as one of the Premier Comedians in our country. He has an ability to truthfully translate the human condition. Audiences across the country relate to his comedic characterizations as he exposes the humor of day-to-day situations as well as serving up resplendent rants on world events.

    Through precise physical timing and impeccable audience insight, he has honed his talents while performing from hole in the wall clubs to sold out theaters. Bobby Collins' rise to top headlining, comedic master was inevitable. His true dedication to his craft is what keeps his vibrant shows consistently sold out.

    A native New Yorker, Collins possesses a confidence and genuine everyman likeability that can only be earned. He knows what it's like to work a day job, in order to pursue a dream. He's flipped his share of burgers, as well as signing on as a substitute high school history teacher, to pay the bills - all the while performing in comedy clubs at night.

  • After heeding a conversation with his father, with some trepidation, he ventured into sales. Settling into the high fashion industry. A detour that proved so successful, that in the 1980's he had risen to Vice President at Calvin Klein. It was there that he found himself faced with a life changing decision; remain here or chuck the security (and more than substantial steady income) for the uncertain challenge of heading out on the road - to pursue his dream of becoming a professional, full time stand-up comedian.

    It was a decision he's never regretted.

    Realizing his dream has given Bobby the opportunity to tour with titans of entertainment like Frank Sinatra, Cher, Julio Iglesias and Dolly Parton. As a professional stand-up comedian, he's worked alongside friends, Chris Rock, Ray Romano and Drew Carey, Jerry Seinfeld as well as many others. Rosie O'Donnell specifically requested that Bobby take over as host for VH1 Stand-Up Spotlight.

    Through his personal appearances at Comedy Clubs, Theaters, Casinos Corporate and Charity events, coupled with innumerable television appearances on legendary shows like Letterman, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno, Collins continues to add new fans of all ages to his loyal base of diehard followers.

    It is his relationship with his audiences that results in sold out shows everywhere he makes an appearance. What you see is what you get - Collins is the same man on and off the stage. Bobby Collins has a genuine love for what he does. With such skillful dissection of everyday life, he weaves his uproarious storytelling with effortless flair and charisma as he successfully dismantles any and all socioeconomic, race and age divides. As evidenced by his birthday performance for Chelsea Clinton at the White House as well as his Performance at the inauguration of Donald Trump to appearances in US embassies and USO shows abroad. Night after night, Bobby Collins masterfully reflects the hilarious truth - we're all in this together!

    Bobby currently has 5 CD’s, 3 DVD’s and 1 book.
