The comedian and actor handpicked by Rosie O’Donnell to host the popular VH1 show “Stand-Up Spotlight” has been named the keynote speaker at LifePath’s 20th annual Thanksgiving Benefit and Awards Luncheon next fall.
Bobby Collins, who has worked with Chris Rock, Ray Romano and Drew Carey and many other comic legends, brings his observational comedy and hilarious storytelling talents to the Holiday Inn and Conference Center on Nov. 22.
LifePath and luncheon host the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs are thrilled to welcome Collins to the annual event that honors the people and companies that make a difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
"Love has no disability,” Collins said. “I'm thrilled to be the keynote at the 20th anniversary.”
“I look forward to adding laughter and fun to this event.”
Collins has performed on nearly all of the late-night television shows, from David Letterman to Jimmy Fallon to Jay Leno. He has appeared in several movies and been nominated for CableACE and American Comedy Awards.
Making 200 live stand-up performances annually, Collins has released six comedy albums and made special appearances at U.S. embassies across the globe. He even performed at Chelsea Clinton’s birthday party at the White House.
“After our tremendous success with Pete Rose, people told us they wanted more entertainment," said Paul Coleman CEO and Executive Director of LifePath. “So we listened and are excited to bring in one of the best entertainers in the industry."
Adroitly dissecting everyday life, Collins energizes his stories with flair, charisma and themes that dismantle socioeconomic, race and age divides.
With a daughter with intellectual disabilities, he knows and understands the challenging realities that they bring to families. He is thrilled to be LifePath’s keynote speaker and looks forward to helping us to see that: “We're all in this together!”
