Bobby Collins is always the funniest guy in the room. 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.
A comedy for all ages about grandparents who try every scheme they can think of to keep their grandson from moving away to pursue his dream job. 12-20
