Bob Zany's thirty-second year in showbizz wrapped with the long-awaited premier of "Close But No Cigar: Bob Zany," Jay Kanzler's chronicle of Zany's three decades on the joke-telling roller coaster. The film debuted as a work-in-progress at The St. Louis Film Festival on November 18 to stellar reviews: "Often hilarious and occasionally poignant, Close But No Cigar stands with the very best in the entertainment documentary genre."--Joe Hodes, Playback STL. Watch the trailer at www.bobzany.com. Zany also garnered a featured spot in Jordan Brady's Slamdance smash, "I Am Comic" currently airing on Showtime, and enjoyed a ten day tour of Israel with Komedy for Koby.
Zany's long, long resume is bursting with close to 1000 national television stints, including a coveted spot on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as well as co-starring roles alongside Matt Damon in The Informant and David Spade in Joe Dirt. Zany's current library of CDs including Bob Zany, B to Z, Bay-bee! and Son of Bingle, His Greatest Hits and his infamous Zany-ism t-shirt collection are available at www.bobzany.com.
As all Bob & Tom Show fans know, Bob Zany's nationally syndicated weekly feature, The Zany Report, is the place where the three-time American Comedy Award Nominee skewers current events, where Buh-Buh-Buh-Buh Bing Crosby checks in with his version of The Classics, and where YOU have a chance to Fix The Joke, Bay-bee! Sure, it's a lot of laughs, but it's just a taste of the live show!!! As critics rave, "…Zany is poised and loaded with original material and perfect timing…" and club owners concur, "He's the best ad-lib comic out there; he gets right in the audience and interacts…he's amazing…"
Zany treasures his sixteen year association with “The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon” which has included stand-up spots, co-hosting duties, fund-raising and a VP seat on the Board of Directors. Zany’s humor column “And One More Thing…” is published quarterly in the prestigious scholarly review, Phi Kappa Phi Forum. A Los Angeles native, Zany lives in the San Fernando Valley with his wife, Erin and their Certified Pre-Owned adopted dogs Henry and Frankie.

    Michael Thorne is an amalgam of culture and white trash raised on a greasy silver spoon in a borough of Minneapolis aptly nicknamed “Nordeast”. He has brought his hilarious observational insights on evolution, (or lack thereof), human relations, marriage & parenthood to backwoods barrooms, colleges, casinos and A-list comedy clubs from coast to coast & border to border. Michael grabbed the attention of LA bigwigs at one point who urged him to leave Minnesota to further his career. “You’re the funniest thing out of the Midwest. Now get out of the Midwest.”

    But Michael favors the Midwestern family life. He will take you on a wild and hysterical tour of the minefield that is his life. Michael has shared the stage with comedy legends Steven Wright, the late Bill Hicks and the late Mitch Hedberg.

    Christine can best be described as one funny mother!   She has a husband, a twenty-something son who lives at home, a divorced daughter and three grand-kids. This gives her a full portfolio of material to draw from.  A lot of people ask Chris why she began a career in comedy so late in life. Well, it’s not a coincidence that she started immediately after her daughter began having babies! Chris does not like to baby-sit! Sure, traveling around the country telling jokes to drunks in smoky nightclubs was not the most practical way to get out of baby-sitting, but she decided it was definitely worth a try. (It was either that, or go to truck-driving school and she hates the way she looks in flannel shirts! ) So far, this desperate attempt to distance herself from family obligations has worked out quite nicely. She’s come a long way from her early years in comedy.

    She currently headlines in some of the top clubs in the country and has become a favorite at “The Comedy Stop” in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America. She appeared in six episodes and made it all the way to the finale where it came down to only 5 finalists. Ok, she didn’t win—-but just ask anyone who has seen her perform and they will tell you that she is definitely one funny mother!
