His work spans film, television, web, and his home; the stage. With 5 highly praised solo shows – this 3 time NAACP nominee has risen to the forefront of one person performance, particularly with his seminal work “East 14th” which ran Off Broadway NYC.. He recently co-produced filmmaker Robert Townsend’s solo mega-hit “Living the Shuffle” and will be shooting the concert film of “East 14th” at the Grand Lake Theater under Townsend’s direction as soon as the Cooties19 lifts.

Bob has served as a Creative Consultant on several of Don Reed’s one man shows, “East 14th” “The Kipling Hotel” and “DMV”, to name a few as well as Larry Wilson’s Wonderland, a comedy/magic review at Harrah’s Reno. Bob served as a Special Project Coordinator at the game show “Jeopardy!” for 10 years. Additionally, he has created numerous game and reality show concepts.  A dating show format he co-created is currently being developed at Howie Mandel’s Alevy Productions.


Each question will be multiple choice, with three possible answers.  

Miss an answer and you are eliminated from the game.  Answer correctly and move on to the next question.  We will eliminate the contestants until we are down to a final four.  Once we get to our finalists, we will learn more about them. They will then be pared down one at a time over a series of rounds until we get to our winner!

Players eliminated prior to our final four in our first half hour can come right back and play again in the second half hour!
