Comic Bobby Slayton

Bring your date to see comic Bobby Slayton at Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago’s Old Town November 16-17, and stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel!

Bobby Slayton has been called “the Pitbull of Comedy.” He has been a standup comedian for over twenty years, and he has enjoyed an acting career in such films as “Get Shorty,” “Ed Wood,” “Bandits,” and “Dreamgirls.” His politically incorrect comedy is edgy and not for the faint of heart.

Bobby Slayton is a regular performer on NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” and he is a favorite guest of Bill Maher on “Politically Incorrect,” on HBO. He has had his own HBO standup show and has appeared on “Comic Relief,” and in “The Mind of a Married Man.”

“Slayton’s refusal to compromise his art has always made him worth a special trip.” Las Vegas Review Journal “Armed and dangerous.” The New York Daily News
