Reviews & Ratings
A true comic’s comic, Bobby Slayton is best known for his title as the “Pit Bull of Comedy”. He has been performing his own intense style of standup comedy for 25 years, becoming one of the best known, and most energetic comedians on the road. Audiences, critics and the entertainment industry have all voiced their approval of the brazen, in your face comic. The New York Daily News described Slayton as “Armed and Dangerous!” and the American Comedy Awards voted him the “Funniest Male Stand-up Comic of the year.” <p>Slayton was recently seen in the film “The Aristocrats”, in which the world’s greatest standup comedians tell the same very, VERY dirty, filthy joke. Bobby was also in the film “Bandits”, opposite Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton. In the film, Slayton portrays the host of a tabloid TV show who follows the exploits of two bank robbers played by Willis and Thornton. Slayton garnered great reviews for his portrayal of Joey Bishop, opposite Ray Liotta and Joe Mantegna, in the critically acclaimed HBO original movie “The Rat Pack”. Slayton also had scene-stealing roles in such films as “Get Shorty”, “Ed Wood” and “Wayne’s World 2”.</p> <p>Audiences across the country may also recognize Bobby from his many television appearances including “Later!", "The Tonight Show” & “Politically Incorrect”. A radio audience favorite, Slayton can be heard frequently on the morning show circuit, including “The Howard Stern Show”.</p> <p>In addition to his TV and film work, Slayton’s second comedy CD "I've Come For Your Children" is currently in release. Bobby’s critically acclaimed 1st comedy CD "Raging Bully", debuted to excellent reviews and quickly became a cult favorite. The one-hour live recording addresses topics such as the death penalty, romance, porn and sexism – all topics that Slayton is quick to take on, onstage and off.</p>
