Dobie Maxwell - aka 'Mr. Lucky' - is FUNNY! Funny how, like a clown? NO - he's funny on stage as a nationally touring standup comedy headliner. He's also funny on the radio, both as host of his own show and highly sought after guest.
Dobie has also appeared on national television on CBS's 'The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson' and Byron Allen's 'Comics.TV'. He's also been featured on too many local and regional television programs to list. Dobie is a seasoned professional, and he has appeared in all 48 lower continental United States.
A native of Milwaukee, WI - Dobie has traveled North America countless times as a touring comic and has shared a bill with such notables as Jeff Foxworthy, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey, Frank Caliendo, Jeff Garlin, Steve Harvey, Rosie O'Donnell, Weird Al Yankovic, Robin Williams and many others.
'Mr. Lucky' is now a rock solid headliner himself, even though he's had more than his share of bad breaks along the way to slow him down. He has chosen to take advantage of this less than stellar situation, and mine it for comedic effect.
“I don't really need to write jokes.” Dobie says. “Life has thrown enough darts at me where all I have to do is just report what's gone on in the recent or distant past, and audiences start to laugh. It's pretty easy.” And, laugh they do - loudly! Dobie has survived not one but several nearly fatal car accidents, in addition to having to testify in court against his childhood best friend who robbed a bank - TWICE - and tried to blame one of the robberies on Dobie. He has enough amazing and completely true stories to keep any audience thoroughly entertained. His 'luck' is legendary, and those who know him know it's no joke.
Dobie has also been successfully teaching comedy classes since 1995, and is known for 'The Maxwell Method of Standup Comedy' - a course that has been designed to help people of all levels of experience learn the craft. Dobie has also modified the class format for corporate America and has done team building exercises with sales forces, hospitality crews and just about anyone who has public contact. He reveals secrets of the professionals to people from all walks of life and everyone has fun doing it. He also writes an insightful daily chronicle of a comedian's life called 'The Dented Can Diary'.
Dobie is a very versatile performer who is vastly experienced in both live standup comedy and on the radio. He is also a seasoned host and emcee and he knows how to read any audience and KEEP IT CLEAN. This is the number one concern of all who hire, and he understands where 'the line' is and never goes over it. He can adapt for virtually any audience, and has references from coast to coast. Also, he does not drink any alcohol, smoke or use illegal drugs. He's professional, personable, and a perfect fit for your next event! Don't let the lasting bitter taste of poor quality drown out the initial sweetness of low price.
Invest in a proven professional, as the entertainment portion of any event is what those who attend will remember most. It's not the food or the venue, it's the quality of the entertainer. Dobie Maxwell has paid a lifetime of dues to be able to make the claim he's one of the top humorous acts anywhere. Check him out for yourself. You'll be glad you did, and so will those who attend your event!
Dobie's comedic pedigree could probably be compared closest to Rodney Dangerfield, but his proficiency with the English language can be traced more to George Carlin. He prefers to work clean, so Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld would be influences as well.
