Comedian Bobby Collins has an ability to truthfully translate the human condition. Audiences across the country relate to his comedic characterizations as he exposes the humor of day-to-day situations as well as serving up resplendent rants on world events.

Through precise physical timing and impeccable audience insight, he has honed his talents while performing from hole in the wall clubs to sold out theaters. His rise to top headlining, comedic master was inevitable. His true dedication to his craft is what keeps his vibrant shows consistently sold out.

A native New Yorker, Collins possesses a confidence and genuine everyman likeability that can only be earned. He knows what it is like to work a day job, in order to pursue a dream. He has flipped his share of burgers, as well as signing on as a substitute high school history teacher, to pay the bills, all the while performing in comedy clubs at night.

After heeding a conversation with his father, with some trepidation, he ventured into sales. Settling into the high fashion industry. A detour that proved so successful, that in the 1980s he had risen to Vice President at Calvin Klein. It was there that he found himself faced with a life changing decision; remain here or chuck the security (and more than substantial steady income) for the uncertain challenge of heading out on the road, to pursue his dream of becoming a professional, full time stand-up comedian.

It was a decision he has never regretted.

Realizing his dream has given Bobby the opportunity to tour with titans of entertainment like Frank Sinatra, Cher, Julio Iglesias and Dolly Parton. As a professional stand-up comedian, he has worked alongside friends, Chris Rock, Ray Romano and Drew Carey, as well as many others. Rosie ODonnell specifically requested that Bobby take over as host for Stand-Up Spotlight. Collins is widely regarded as a comics comic.

Through his personal appearances at Comedy Clubs, Theaters, Corporate and Charity events, coupled with innumerable television appearances on legendary shows like Letterman, The Tonight Show with both Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno,

Collins continues to add new fans of all ages to his loyal base of diehard followers.

It is his relationship with his audiences that results in sold out shows everywhere he makes an appearance. What you see is what you get – Collins is the same man on and off the stage. Bobby Collins has a genuine love for what he does. With such skillful dissection of everyday life, he weaves his uproarious storytelling with effortless flair and charisma as he successfully dismantles any and all socioeconomic, race and age divides. As evidenced by his birthday performance for Chelsea Clinton at the White House, to appearances in US embassies and USO shows abroad. Night after night, Bobby Collins masterfully reflects the hilarious truth – we’re all in this together!

Bobby currently has 5 CDs, 3 DVDs and a new special slated for early 2015.

With the critically acclaimed publication of his first book, On The Inside, Witisms and Wisdomisms by Comedian Bobby Collins we learn, through his personal and professional tragedies and triumphs, what has shaped his beliefs. With humorous recall, Bobby recounts his search for balance between career and family. The Boca Black Box is thrilled to welcome their friend, Bobby Collins, back to the stage this November!

Definitely one of the best Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Restaurants circa 1957 in South Florida. If this joint was a drop closer to Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode- we would definitely be real steady customers. That said, since 2011 we’ve still managed to get to China Hollywood on average something like 6 times a year!

Posted on April 13th, 2011

***** China Hollywood, 3605 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, Florida 33021, (954) 966-9600.

Literally-every day, old Jeff Eats gets asked…”What’s a really good Chinese restaurant down here.” For those of you who live or work in Hollywood–try China Hollywood.

At this stage of the proceedings check www.chinahollywoodfl.com for menu/prices.

Recently did dinner at this joint–and I gotta tell you, the food was very-good. My outing netted me–egg rolls, bbq ribs, pan fried dumplings, wonton soup, roast pork fried rice, shrimp with black bean sauce, sweet and sour chicken, pepper steak with onions…like I just mentioned, the food was very-good.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here…China Hollywood’s food is probably better, that’s right better–than your favorite neighborhood joint. If this joint was in my neighborhood, it would definitely have me as a steady customer.

As you guys know, what consitutes good food is a very subjective thing. With that in mind, I’m telling you that China Hollywood passed Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn-taste test with flying colors.

China Hollywood is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

Born on the banks of The Mersey – crafted in the historic cellars of The Cavern Club – The Mersey Beatles have been rocking sold-out audiences around the globe since 1999. Today, they are rightly regarded as THE WORLD’S BEST-LOVED LIVERPOOL-BORN BEATLES TRIBUTE… just ask the hundreds of thousands of fans who have seen them over the last 20 years!

The Mersey Beatles were not dreamed up, or cynically manufactured, by a theatre empresario or West End producer… these lads are THE REAL DEAL! They are proudly four mates whose passion for the greatest band of all time shines through in every one of their brilliant shows. Mark Bloor, Steven Howard and Brian Ambrose (that’s John, Paul and Ringo) attended high school together in Liverpool. Craig McGown (he’s the baby of the band and the ‘quiet one’) completes the line up as George.

The Mersey Beatles were the resident Beatles’ tribute at the world-famous Cavern for more than a decade between 2002-2012. They clocked up 600+ performances under the famed Matthew Street arches – almost twice as many gigs there as the original Fab Four played themselves.

Since leaving to tour the world, they have taken their pounding, pulsating and unmistakable ‘Mersey Beat’ to excited and sold-out audiences across Europe, USA, Asia and Australia.

While receiving world-wide plaudits (including glowing praise from members of The Beatles’ own families), The Mersey Beatles have never forgotten their roots and pride themselves on presenting the Fab Four in a most authentic and truly Liverpool-born way. Just like the audiences they play to at their sold-out theatre, arena and festival shows – the band are all die-hard Beatles fans. Every song and every moment are a celebration of the best pop music ever, from the ‘Mop Top’ hits of Beatlemania, through the psychedelic creativity of Sgt. Pepper to the melodic wonder of the Fab Four’s later work.

All shows are brilliantly brought to life by a band who exude the inner and outer spirit of the real thing, from the costumes, instruments, Scouse charm and, of course, that wonderful era-defining, Mersey sound. So, get on board for The Mersey Beatles’ hit show, presented in the most authentic way you will ever see. It goes without saying you’ll have a FAB time!

In Celebration of “Bohemian Rhapsody” the Academy Award Winning QUEEN Movie

We Present – QUEEN FLASH – THE REAL TRIBUTE TO QUEEN

The Montreal Gazette
MerQury act a huge hit in Europe – By BILL BROWNSTEIN,

Johnny Zatylny admits he’s hardly a household name in his native Greenfield Park – yet. But friends and family and fellow Parkers might be surprised to learn that Zatylny is a superstar in Germany and much of northern Europe. And he’s almost god-like in Gubin, Poland.
He may move around by métro in Montreal, but it’s mostly limos when he’s on the other side of the pond.
Zatylny is considered to be among the world’s top three Freddie Mercury impressionists. He has performed over the last eight years throughout Europe and North America with his Queen tribute band, MerQury, and has played to packed stadiums from Berlin to Stockholm and, yes, Gubin. Montrealers can see and hear what all the fuss is about when Johnny comes marching home with Another One Bites the Dust, his homage to Freddie and Queen, at the Gesù on Saturday. For he will certainly rock you.
Freddie Mercury – né Farrokh Bulsara – has been an unlikely boon to Zatylny’s career. Though the British glam rocker died in 1991, his music resonates almost as much today as it did in his group’s heyday with the release of such chart-busters as Bohemian Rhapsody, Somebody to Love and We Are the Champions (once the anthem of the Habs).
Mercury was no run-of-the-mill rocker. With his four-octave range, he could do it all, from falsetto to baritone. His voice had an operatic quality and is not easily imitated. Zatylny is one of the few who can almost match him note for note. All the more surprising since, unlike Mercury, he has had no formal training. “Just 30 years of non-stop singing,” the affable Zatylny says over a beer downtown.
When he glues on the trademark Mercury moustache and dons the glittering garb and keeps his once-blond locks coloured jet black, Zatylny can almost pass for Freddie in the flesh as well as in voice. Curiously, Zatylny was not much of a Queen fan. He spent most of his early career here as the frontman for the Montreal rockers Simon Says, doing covers of the most popular acts of the day.
But when Simon Says disbanded in 1997, Zatylny found himself for the first time in years without a regular singing gig. He wound up sweeping floors in a factory.
Then a friend called from L.A. to inform him of an opening in a disco band there.
“I jumped at the opportunity, even though disco really wasn’t my thing,” says Zatylny, whose brother Wally is a former Hamilton Tiger Cat and member of the CFL Hall of Fame. “But then again, anything would beat sweeping floors.”

It was only after he arrived that he learned he would have to dress in drag for the gig. “I asked myself what I was doing. Then they had me singing the female parts to tunes like I Will Survive.”
And he had to question whether he would survive himself. “I looked on the bright side: It strengthened my voice.”
While in L.A., he spotted an ad seeking singers to audition for the TV show, Your Big Break. He showed up and did a Jon Bon Jovi cover, but sensed that the producer was not blown away. So, for reasons still unclear to him, he asked if he could sing Bohemian Rhapsody. He did, and the producer was blown away. This led to a spot on the show and, shortly thereafter, to the MerQury act in Europe, where he does almost 80 shows a year.
“I never realized just what kind of impact Queen had out there, but I now know why they were so popular. Really, almost every one of their songs were winners, and they appealed to practically everyone, regardless of generation,” he explains. “The funny thing is that I get these hard-core Queen fans come up to me and start asking me about Queen trivia and songs I never heard of. I haven’t got a clue what they’re talking about.”
Zatylny, like his brothers Wally and Stephen (who played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers), was also an athlete growing up and briefly entertained the notion of making football a career. “Then after getting hit really hard, I decided football might not be for me,” he jokes. “Wally was like a kamikaze kick-returner. He had no fear. He also had no voice. At least I had that option.”
The singing has turned out to be a better long-term career option than getting smacked around the gridiron. “I have to admit, though, that I initially thought after a few years, I would get really burned out and never want to hear Queen again for the rest of my life. But I’ve been doing it now for eight years, and every show is like the first one I did, and the energy and enthusiasm are still there.”
Unlike many music imitators, Zatylny is under no illusion that he is Freddie Mercury reincarnated. “There was only one Freddie. All I can do is bring his spirit back to the stage. But I don’t try to be him. Nor do I try to dress exactly like him, either.”
Zatylny is all for the glitz, but he does draw the line at the leather short-shorts Freddie used to sport. “I’ve got to be me.”
