Wanna get LUCKY? Let Dobie headline your next comedy event!
We booked Dobie for a fundraiser- the event was centered around an Oktoberfest-themed beer tasting. Dobie was a hit. He was personable, very funny, and his material was a lot of stuff the audience could relate to. I had a lot of positive feedback from attendees. Dobie also hosted our live auction and did a great job. Thank you for everything, Dobie! I hope our paths cross again!
Dobie was a real hit with our group. He was able to relate to the varied ages and differences in our audience and "play" off of their responses. His show is "clean" and very entertaining. I would recommend him to anyone.

Bizarre luck and horrendous timing have followed Dobie since his birth. His life continues to be a struggle to overcome obstacles most others never have to worry about. “I don’t know what it is, but I just haven’t been able to get myself in the right place at the right time”, he laments. It’s very frustrating for him, but it sure has made audiences all over laugh like crazy. We all love to hear that somebody ELSE is doing WORSE, and Dobie is that guy.
