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!

For you guys who maybe wondering, original members Steve Boone and Joe Butler are in the current 5-man Lovin’ Spoonful lineup!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats saw The Lovin’ Spoonful last year- trust me when I tell you, these guys put on an absolutely great show!

If you remember “Do You Believe in Magic?” and “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?”, you’re in the right place. According to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, between 1965 and 1968, The Lovin’ Spoonful spanned the genres of jug-band music (“Good Time Music”), ragtime (“Day Dream”), country (“Nashville Cats”), folk-pop (“You Didn’t Have to Be So Nice”), hard rock (“Summer in the City”) and orchestrated pop (“She Is Still a Mystery”). Add to that “6 o’Clock” and “Darling Be Home Soon” and you’ve got the makings of one of the best vintage rock and roll concerts ever. The Spoonful features original founding members Steve Boone (who co-wrote some of the bands biggest hits) and Joe Butler, as well as Murray Weinstock (who played and sang on “Welcome Back”), Mike Arturi and Phil Smith.

Their first 7 single releases all made it into the Top 10 on the record charts. Early non-stop touring including a legendary run with The Supremes gave The Lovin’ Spoonful an audience that most rock bands of the time did not have. Over the next 3 years, 6 original music albums and 12 hit singles followed.

In March 2000, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2012 The Vocal Group Hall of Fame inducted the band and shortly after that Steve & Joe were inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. To this day, they continue to tour worldwide but on March 3rd, they’ll be in Citrus County at the Curtis Peterson Auditorium.

Look!

Jeff Eats is a simple (left myself open there, didn’t I?) guy-who was born in Brooklyn in 1949. I was raised on “American” Chinese food…you know- wonton soup, bbq ribs, steamed dumplings, roast pork fried rice, egg rolls, sweet & sour pork, General Tso’s chicken, pepper steak, chicken chow mein, shrimp in lobster sauce with a drop of black bean sauce mixed in, pineapple chunks, vanilla/strawberry/chocolate/pistachio ice cream, fortune cookies. Like I said, I’m a simple guy!

Long story short,

I got friends-my age- who were born in Brooklyn, who for some reason think that- the “American” Chinese food we all grew up on-is now beneath them…when they eat Chinese, they have to have- REAL CHINESE stuff like…pepper salted quail, lambchoy minced with green bean, spicy fish with tofu, yam in sour sauce.

Being a pretty easy going guy, Jeff Eats is willing to try almost any restaurant “recommended” by friends to “accommodate” friends.

With the above in mind, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and three “former” Brooklyn couples recently- did Wei’s Long Gong Chinese. Real simple- the wonton soup, egg rolls, steamed dumplings, General Tso’s chicken, roast pork fried rice, shrimp in lobster sauce with a drop of black bean sauce mixed in- were all delicious. I have absolutely no idea how the pepper salted quail, lambchoy minced with green bean, spicy fish with tofu, yam in sour sauce- tasted…but Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn friends said to tell you, these dishes were terrific. By the way, the pineapple chunks and the fortune cookies-were, pineapple chunks and fortune cookies!

Trust Jeff Eats with this one, Wei’s Long Gong Chinese’s “American” Chinese food is very-very good…if this joint was in my neighborhood, I’d be a real steady customer. Just a gut call, but I’m thinking that you guys who like REAL CHINESE FOOD will also- really enjoy Wei’s Long Gong Chinese.

You can check menu/prices at weislonggong.com.

Wei’s is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 11:30am-9:30pm, Friday 11:30am-10pm, Saturday 11:30am-11pm, closed on Tuesday.
