After proudly serving in the military, Bobby moved back to Iowa and found his way into comedy. Since 2010, Bobby has traveled the country as a professional stand-up comedian, performing at sold out theaters and clubs, casinos, corporate events and one time at a surprise baby shower (she was not surprised). His ability to adjust his comedy style and material to fit any audience makes him the perfect choice for your next event. His material revolves around his life, his time in the Air Force and everyday observations that leave crowds of all kinds laughing. He's opened for acts such as Todd Barry (Comedy Central), Janeane Garafalo (HBO), Emmy Award winner Tig Notaro and ABC's Cristela Alonzo.
Bobby's ability to cater to any audience makes him a great fit for whatever your event may be. From fundraisers to award banquets to more intimate settings like luncheons and birthday parties, Bobby has seen it all. He works with his clients beforehand to ensure he brings the type of performance they are looking for. His act can be all-ages or just for the adults, that depends on you!
Bobby Ray Bunch tried stand up comedy for the first time at his high school talent show. He placed second in the competition, but fell in love with the thrill of stand-up comedy. After high school he joined the US Air Force where he served almost six years in Security Forces. He was stationed in England, Spain and worked for Air Force One in Maryland.
After Bobby completed his service to his country, he moved back to Iowa to pursue his college education. Immediately, he found his way on stage and never looked back. His grades suffered, but he didn't care. Eventually Bobby graduated with a degree in International Studies with a minor in Spanish.
While maintaining his presence in the comedy world, Bobby tried pretending he could have a normal job with normal people. Apparently, you can't just say whatever you want to whomever you want which led Bobby back on the road doing what he loves. He's been on stage at The Comedy Store, multiple comedy festivals, too many casinos and anywhere with a microphone. He's shared the stage with some of his favorite comedians such as Todd Barry, Tig Notaro, Janeane Garofalo, Cristela Alonzo and Josh Blue.
Bobby also performs as a solo acoustic musician, playing renditions of everyone's favorite songs like Wonderwall...and...well, that's the only song that matters. He's played all over the Midwest at places like the Anheuser-Busch brewery in St. Louis, MO, the main stage at TugFest (Google it) and at wineries, bars, restaurants and private events.
Bobby resides in LeClaire, IA with his girlfriend and their stupid dog.
