The Bob Nelson Show
Friday August 1, 8:00pm

Bob Nelson Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one. Characters like the lovable nerd Eppy Epperman, punchy boxer Jiffy Jeff and chicken rancher Wilby Stuckinson are as funny and memorable as any you will see in comedy today. Bob's football routine is a recognized comedy classic and "Morning", his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of the finest works of one man showmanship to grace the modern stage. If all that were not enough, Bob's ability to relay personal stories and observations about everyday life put him in the same league as the best of today's stand-up comics. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. Throughout his career Bob Nelson has been hailed as one of the most gifted funny people on the planet.

A contemporary of Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, Mr. Nelson's extraordinary talents have been refined by a career that has included multiple appearances on the Merv Griffin Show, the Tonight Show and David Letterman. Bob has performed live thousands of times at hundreds of comedy clubs, colleges and other exciting live venues including the Las Vegas strip, Radio City Music Hall and on NYC's Broadway. He has also had the great honor to perform at the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. for president Ronald Reagan. Most recently, he has performed on stage at The Grand Ole Opry.

Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield's opening act for eight of the most popular years of Mr Dangerfield's career. Bob was prominently featured in two of Rodney's enormously popular HBO stand up comedy showcases, alongside other comedy phenoms like Rosanne Barr and Sam Kineson. That led to two HBO specials starring Bob Nelson, including the ground breaking classic Nelson Schmelson.

Bob won an Emmy Award in Philadelphia for a children’s show he wrote and starred in. Bob has since had supporting roles in Nora Ephram's directorial film debut This Is My Life with Julie Kavner and Ivan Reitman's box office smash Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bob also starred in the Zucker Brother's Marx Brother's take off Brain Donors.
