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. 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.”

A self-described class clown in school, Gerry Bednob worked as a high school counselor until he decided to try out open mic night at Yuk Yuk’s comedy club in Canada. His initial fear of bombing on stage resulted in huge laughs from the crowd and got him an invite from the owner of the club to come back. He became relatively well-known on the comedy club circuit performing throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. He made appearances on The Wonder Years and Encino Man before winning the 1993 Star Search International Stand Up Competition. It was as a comic where he met writer/director Judd Apatow and was cast as Mr. Burundi on the Fox television show, Undeclared. This relationship led to Bednob’s breakthrough role in the smash hit, The 40 Year Old Virgin. He would follow up on the success of this with numerous roles in film and television including Witless Protection and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.
