“THE PITBULL OF COMEDY” BRINGS HIS BARK TO SHOWTIME
“Bobby Slayton: Born to be Bobby” To Premiere
Thursday, March 4th at 9 PM ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, CA – (March 1, 2010) – “The Pitbull of Comedy,” Bobby Slayton, will unleash his patented brand of in-your-face humor on SHOWTIME® with BOBBY SLAYTON: BORN TO BE BOBBY, a new stand-up special premiering Thursday, March 4th at 9 PM ET/PT.
Throughout the 60-minute set, Slayton performs his intense, unapologetic style of stand-up as he comments on things like the annoyances of airport security and the job-like requirements of marriage. But he really gets the theatre roaring when he singles out audience members when sharing his old-school observations of various minority groups.
Audiences around the country should recognize Slayton from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as “Get Shorty,” “Ed Wood,” “Bandits” and, most recently, “Dreamgirls.” He has also appeared on dozens of television shows, including The Tonight Show and Politically Incorrect. Currently, he can be seen five nights a week exclusively at Hooters Casino Las Vegas.
BOBBY SLAYTON: BORN TO BE BOBBY is executive produced by Judi Brown-Marmel, Robert Hartmann, Stephen Kroopnick, Stu Schreiberg and Slayton.
