We are very excited to have Bob Zany kicking it with us this week, September 25 – September 28, at our Broad Ripple location with feature act, Zan Aufderheide.
Bob is wry, sarcastic, insulting, lovable, and well… zany. He has been a regular guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and performs more than three hundred nights a year in the best clubs in the country. As if this weren’t enough, his Zany Report is also featured on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show.
“He simply reaches into a bottomless grab bag of jokes. It’s like watching Magic Johnson lead a fast break–so smooth and effortless that it would be easy to overlook just how much talent and skill is behind the process… He’s also a naturally funny guy, a distinction at a time when stand-up is cluttered with people who aren’t.” – The Los Angeles Times
“Zany has so mastered his craft that it’s become invisible …his improvisational style harks back to Robin Williams. But when art is highly evolved nobody looks like a clone of anybody else, and Zany is nothing but an original.” – Dramalogue
“We at the Weekly do believe that it is Zany’s turn… Bob Zany as big as Tim Allen, Roseanne and Jerry Seinfeld? In our minds, he already is.” – Pasadena Weekly
We’re welcoming the awesome and effervescent Bob Zany to our Crackers Comedy Club stage in Broad Ripple January 19-22! You’ll readily recognize him from the Bob & Tom Show, and maybe you saw him in a little film called The Informant!
