On June the 5th, his months Joke Box goes all offside and off colour with Bob Doolally, A legend in his own liquid lunchtime, Bob ‘The Gob’ Doolally is now recognised as one of the most original and unique character comedy acts on the UK stage and screen. A retired football manager and ex-player who now hacks out a living as an after-dinner speaker and third-rate media pundit, Bob has been lauded by both the public and the press alike.
An evening with Bob recalls his footballing career in all its gory detail … the endless celebs he played for and managed, the numerous fights and on-pitch debacles, the six marriages to small town beauty queens, Tennent’s Lager Lovelies and C-list wannabes, and, of course, countless anecdotes of drink-fuelled debauchery.
Bob has appeared in many sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows, including 2008’s Bob Doolally Talks Balls, several national tours of Scotland, performances at comedy festivals throughout the UK and numerous TV and radio shows – including Under The Moon (C4) and Radio 5’s live coverage of the 1998 World Cup.
Bob found a new legion of fans as a regular star of the BBC1 TV series, The Live Floor Show. His appearances in the follow-up series ‘Floor Show’ took this crazed, vodka-fuelled character into new depths of depravity and new heights of comic creativity. With a live CD released on his own ‘Sadly Dead Now’ label the cult is spreading.
