Audiences around the country may recognize Bobby from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as “Get Shorty”, “Ed Wood”, “Bandits” and “Dreamgirls”.

He’s been seen on dozens of television shows including “The Tonight Show” and “Politically Incorrect”. Bobby’s many appearances on HBO have included “Comic Relief” and his own stand-up special.
