Mayo Presents Comedian Bobby Collins

Mayo Presents Comedian Bobby Collins

(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Comedian Bobby Collins comes to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, February 10, 2017 at 8:00pm. Collins 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. Tickets range from $39 - $59.

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, as well as many others.  Rosie O'Donnell specifically requested that Bobby take over as host for Stand-Up Spotlight.  Collins is widely regarded as a "comic's comic."

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

Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South Street in Morristown, NJ.
