About Bobby Slayton
Listen to Bobby's latest interview on The DC Improv Podcast!
Bobby Slayton, otherwise known as "The Pitbull of Comedy", has been performing his own intense brand of stand-up comedy for over twenty years. Renowned as a true “comic’s comic”, Slayton’s sharp wit and diffusive energy has made him one of the best known and respected comics working today.
Audiences around the country may recognize Bobby from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as "Get Shorty," "Ed Wood," and "Bandits", or from television shows like "The Tonight Show" and "Politically Incorrect." Bobby's appearances on HBO include performances on the highly rated Comic Relief charity special and his own half-hour “One Night Stand” series feature. Bobby was also regular on the HBO series "Mind of a Married Man," and played 'Joey Bishop' opposite Ray Liotta and Joe Mantegna in the critically acclaimed film "The Rat Pack."
Slayton's distinctive gravelly voice has been heard on animated shows like "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist" and "Family Guy," as well as popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin & Bean, and Tom Leykis.
The NY Daily News calls Slayton "armed and dangerous" and the Las Vegas Review Journal points out that "Slayton's refusal to comprise his art has always made him worth a special trip."
