A true "comic’s comic,” Bobby Slayton, often referred to as “The Pitbull of Comedy,” has been performing his own intense style of stand-up comedy for over 30 years, becoming one of the best known, respected, and energetic comics working today.
Audiences around the country may recognize Bobby from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as Get Shorty, Ed Wood, Bandits and Dreamgirls. He’s been seen on dozens of television shows including The Tonight Show, Politically Incorrectand in Woody Allen's new Amazon TV project, Crisis in Six Scenes. Bobby’s many appearances on HBO have included Comic Reliefand his own stand-up special. He was a series regular on the HBO seriesMind of a Married Man, and played ‘Joey Bishop’ opposite Ray Liotta and Joe Mantegna in the critically acclaimed filmThe Rat Pack.
Slayton’s distinctive gravelly voice has often been heard on animated shows like Dr. Katz and Family Guy, as well as many popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin & Bean, and Tom Leykis. Acclaimed as “Armed and Dangerous” by the NY Daily News and voted the “Funniest Male Stand-up Comic of the Year” by the American Comedy Awards, his show is worth a special trip.
Again, these shows are NOT for the easily offended! Everyone in the audience and everything is fair game for Bobby.
