When he did Johnny Dare last year, even Johnny – who sees them all – said, “You blew me away dude, you are one of the all-time best.”
The guy is much more than just one of the stars from Police Academy 2,3 and 4.
The man has had a fantastic career.
Bobcat was on David Letterman at age 20. He went on to be a comedy star and film star in movies like SCROOGED, BLOW (“I can’t feel my face”), SHAKES THE CLOWN and many more. He did HBO Specials and then became a director in the 90’s. Bobcat directed the Chappelle Show, The Man Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and films like Windy City Heat for Comedy Central and his new one GOD BLESS AMERICA, which has gotten rave reviews. It’s a dark comedy that’s out now.
Bobcat continues to do voices for shows like The Simpsons, he also did voices on Dr. Katz and Beavis and Butthead. The guy never stops working. He even played a dog on the “Happily Ever After” television series.
His standup is pure comedic joy.
Many people don’t know what to expect, thinking he’s that strange voiced man from Police Academy. But he’s a brilliant thinker, more like a George Carlin.
Bob and I have worked together for many years. In fact the Bobcat and Pauly Shore were the first two Hollywood stars I had on stage at the Chiefs Red Fridays in Westport in the late 90’s. Bob played Westport, OP and the Legends once about a year ago.
We even hung out in Vegas a few years back with Tommy Chong when the two of them headlined the Riviera Hotel. Bobcat also hates when I do my radio schtick, he wants to do his thing, not mine. I understand that.
Hey, I love listening to his stories and comedy – it kills me.
Bobcat will make a weekend stop at Stanford and Sons Legends this Friday and Saturday.
It’s a chance to see one of the best veteran talents in the biz.
