Stand Up Comedy featuring Bobby Collins
Bobby Collins has hosted his own Showtime Special and VH1's "Stand-up Spotlight." On tour he has opened for major celebrities such as Cher, Dolly Parton, Julio Inglesis, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra. His first comedy CD "On The Inside" was a big success but "Out Of Bounds," earned a Grammy nomination.  
Growing up in a rough neighborhood of Queens, NY, Bobby used his wit and humor to get out of fights and doing homework. His personality landed him a job when a Calvin Klein executive saw Bobby sell Klein's wife some jewelry at the Garment Center in Manhattan. One year later, at age 26 he was vice president for the fashion company, but all the time he was still doing stand-up in his spare time.

He was named after his father's favorite comedian, Bob Hope. Collins relates "I've never saw Bob Hope perform. But when I was appearing in Philadelphia for the first time, a newspaper reporter from New York City caught my act and liked it so much he decided to put me on the cover of the paper's weekend section. Lost in the cover's corner was a tiny picture of Bob Hope. While I was visiting with friends in the local restaurant, a black limousine pulled up and the driver handed me a manila envelope. Inside was a signed photo of Bob Hope along with a note saying 'how dare you get top billing on a weekend,' with a happy face written in. I still have it to this day."
