Bobby is a funny guy…a very funny guy! Born in Queens, Bobby is a proud, tried and true tribesman of New York City. His loyal fans affectionately greet him with a rousing BOBBBYYY! wherever he goes.
He instantly builds a rapport with pretty much anyone. Just ask his childhood friends, any airline employee in almost every state in the country, or the President of the United States (a couple of them!). This instant connection is especially evident with his audiences…regardless of age, race, religion, gender or socioeconomics. Why? Because at his core, Bobby is a storyteller who inherently believes we are all the same. Along with his special gift of being able to recognize the humor in life’s day-to-day situations, his observations of people and the craziness of life’s journey, he effortlessly elicits laughter. His comedic (often physical) characterizations and truthful translations of the human condition are by far, what makes his brand of humor, and him, so unique.
He is the guy you want as a big brother, the man you want your daughter to meet, the person you want as your best friend. He’s the guy who left a lucrative career to follow his dream; the guy who loves his dog is proud of his wife’s achievements and is trying to raise, decent, kind, loving human beings – all the while making the rest of us laugh.
Bobby is a husband and father. He and Jill have been married for 28 years (to each other!). He loves his “Girls.” His oldest daughter keeps him on his toes, frequently in need of “self-editing” and Bobby’s wit & wisdom. His second daughter was born with special needs. She is the light, the heart, and soul of his universe. Through her, he has learned the importance of tolerance, patience and above all, Love!
