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!

***** DISH OF THE WEEK (Sunday- 9/8/19- China Hollywood).
One of Jeff Eats’ favorite menu items…
BEEF WITH BROCCOLI
3605 Hollywood Boulevard
Latest Review: 4/13/11
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!

***** 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.

Real simple tale- one of the best Beatles’ tribute bands in the world!
Don’t miss them!
The Mersey Beatles: Four Lads From Liverpool
Saturday, October 5th, 2019 (8pm)
Mizner Park Cultural Center

Boca Raton, Florida 33432
Box Office: (844)-672-2849
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!
My name is Jeff. I was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. Since 1991, I have lived in South Florida and have eaten in so many restaurants down here, that I now consider myself to be a food expert.
