Howard Stern, called Bob’s story on how he got the part, one of the greatest Hollywood stories. Bob developed and produced the first stand-up comedy show for the deaf and hard of hearing people in 1983 becoming an annual event in NYC and now in Los Angeles. The show grew into a multiple day event featuring many of the most recognizable comics in the country, including Bill Burr, Dave Chappelle, Patrice O’Neal, Joy Behar and Ray Romano. Over that time we raised over a million dollars for the cause, while also making stand-up comedy accessible to tens of thousands of deaf and hard of hearing people.Since moving to Los Angeles, he was a special guest performer on three Evening at the Improv’s.
