Called the “perfect fusion of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis”, by the New York Post, BOBBY COLLINS is a born story-teller - confident, charismatic and a master of the smooth delivery. Featuring LISA LANDRY (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central Presents)
Bobby Collins is always the funniest guy in the room. With more than 200 stand-up performances around the country each year, he is a show-business institution who has made millions laugh.
A native of New York, he was literally born into comedy when his father named him for his favorite comedian, Bob Hope. In the 1980s, Bobby left a lucrative position as vice president of Calvin Klein to pursue his dream and ended up working alongside such comedy legends as Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno. While other comics have left stand-up behind, Bobby has kept going, preferring the intimacy and energy he finds in live clubs, theaters and casinos.
The audience at a Bobby Collins show is half the fun. Many of Bobby’s enthusiastic fans have been following him for years and know by heart some of his classic bits (“…on the inside!”). But Bobby keeps it fresh with new observations based on everyday life and his travels around the country.
Over the years, he has hosted VH-1′s “Stand Up Spotlight”; toured with Cher, Julio Iglesias, Dolly Parton and Tony Bennett, among others; and released six comedy CDs, “On the Inside,” “Out of Bounds,” “You’re Not Coming With Us,” “Mr. New York,” “I Wanna Go Home” and most recently “I’m on the Boat.” His latest DVD, “Telling It Like It Is” is available on BobbyCollins.com and will be in-stores, on Amazon and on iTunes in February.
Lisa Landry came up through the famed New York City comedy circuit to become an audience favorite at clubs, colleges and theaters across the country. Landry has appeared on CBS's "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" & "The Bonnie Hunt Show" on NBC. She starred in her own half hour Special, "Comedy Central Presents Lisa Landry". And a nationwide vote catapulted her special to third place out of 100 top comedians in Comedy Central's annual "Standup Showdown." She's the first woman to ever place in the top three. Landry's CD Put Your Keys in the Key Bowl was selected by iTunes as one of the "Top 10 Best Comedy CDs" of 2008. She is one of a handful of comedians chosen by TBS for their "We Know Funny" series of stand-up style commercials. She's also appeared on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" and co-starred on NBC's"Law and Order: SVU". The Louisiana native was featured on "Brett Butler's Southern Belles of Comedy" DVD. She did commentary for E!'s "Forbes Top 100 Celebrities" and CMT's "20 Greatest Redneck Moments", where Landry was chosen as a "Top Pick" by TV Guide. Her guest appearances include Fox's "Morning Show with Mike and Juliet", the "Bob and Tom Show", Fox's "Redeye" and the "Hollyweird" segment on MSNBC's "Scarborough Country". For four years, Landry was a comedy writer for US Weekly Magazine. Punchline Magazine describes Landry best: "She's an incredibly skilled comedian, a controlling presence onstage and a master of pacing and delivery."
