Bob Nelson

Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one. Bob's classic 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. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. 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. He has also had the great honor to perform at the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. for president Ronald Reagan. Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield's opening act for eight of the most popular years of Mr. Dangerfield's career. 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 (Julie & Julia, When Harry Met Sally) and Ivan Reitman's (Ghostbusters, Twins) box office smash Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
