Sure, he’s the famous watermelon smasher. Yes, he literally INVENTED the television stand-up comedy special. Absolutely, 14 Showtime specials is a big deal. And certainly 3,500 live shows to capacity crowds is worth mentioning.
But how about that he is the reason they invented Comedy Central? Or that before him no one ever had that level of interaction with a live audience? Or that he was the #1 comedian (in ticket sales and ratings) for almost 15 years?
Gallagher has led an extraordinary life, with an even more spectacular career. His fan base is one of the most loyal there is, and he rewards them every chance he gets. Now on the Jokes on you tour!
Artie is one of the Entertainment Industry’s most talked-about “must-see” performers. No stranger to Film and Television, Commercials, Voice-overs, Print and Live Stand-up Comedy, Artie is taking the entertainment industry by storm. Artie has been seen on Law and Order, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman and The Tonight Show just to name a few! He has performed his dynamic act in such places as Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Radio City Music Hall, Westbury Music Fair, The Toyota Comedy Festival, The Chicago Comedy Festival, Universal Orlando and more! Artie is currently on tour with Gallagher’s Jokes On You Comedy Tour with Bob Nelson and Gallagher. Artie performs internationally, performing for audiences in places as diverse as England, Canada, Hong Kong and ArubaHe has righteously been spotlighted in Las Vegas, Radio City Music Hall, Atlantic City and opened for the likes of Joan Rivers, Regis Philbin, Howie Mandell and Tony Bennett. Regis Philbin described Artie’s ability to entertain and adjust his act to any situation as “Just unbelievable!” Joan Rivers affirmed, “The most interesting thing about Artie is that I’ve never seen so much energy from any person on and off stage.” Through the years Artie has met many people in the business all who have said, “Black or White, it doesn’t really matter, Artie is one of the hottest entertainers to watch!”
Artie has a new book out called “Comedy on the Road” as seen through a comic’s bloodshot eyes. He states: “I’ve lived my life not willing to have any regrets, not afraid to take on things that make me uncomfortable.
I never wanted to be a comedian. The particular dream and path that I had and planned for my future was that of being a rock star but you know what they say, “Man plans and God laughs”.” You can purchase this and other items from Artie’s website.
Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one. Characters like the lovable nerd Eppy Epperman, punchy boxer Jiffy Jeff and chicken rancher Wilby Stuckinson are as funny and memorable as any you will see in comedy today. Bob’s football routine is a recognized comedy classic and “Morning”, his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of the finest works of one man showmanship to grace the modern stage. If all that were not enough, Bob’s ability to relay personal stories and observations about everyday life put him in the same league as the best of today’s stand-up comics. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. Throughout his career Bob Nelson has been hailed as one of the most gifted funny people on the planet.
A contemporary of Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, Mr. Nelson’s extraordinary talents have been refined by a career that has included multiple appearances on the Merv Griffin Show, the Tonight Show and David Letterman. Bob has performed live thousands of times at hundreds of comedy clubs, colleges and other exciting live venues including the Las Vegas strip, Radio City Music Hall and on NYC’s Broadway. He has also had the great honor to perform at the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. for president Ronald Reagan. Most recently, he has performed on stage at The Grand Ole Opry.
Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield’s opening act for eight of the most popular years of Mr Dangerfield’s career. Bob was prominently featured in two of Rodney’s enormously popular HBO stand up comedy showcases, alongside other comedy phenoms like Rosanne Barr and Sam Kineson. That led to two HBO specials starring Bob Nelson, including the ground breaking classic Nelson Schmelson
Bob won an Emmy Award in Philadelphia for a children’s show he wrote and starred in. Bob has since had supporting roles in Nora Ephram’s directorial film debut This Is My Life with Julie Kavner and Ivan Reitman’s box office smash Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bob also starred in the Zucker Brother’s Marx Brother’s take off Brain Donors.
