Bobby Collins is a proud New Yorker who doesn't shy away from the NYC stereotype when mining material for his self-deprecating observations. Working the comedy circuit since 1980 with his heartfelt and relatable jokes, Collins is a Grammy nominee with six comedy CDs and three DVDs as well as numerous TV talk-show appearances and cable specials. His live act has seen him open for diverse entertainers including Cher, Frank Sinatra, Julio Iglesias, and Dolly Parton, among others. Collins can be a little foul-mouthed, but his curses pepper his speech in the way that gifted storytellers sneak things past you, then quickly move on to something else. It could be his idea of what a dog’s turds are like or what happens to his arms after any modicum of exercise; his stories are funny, and coming from a substitute-teacher-turned Calvin Klein VP, they’re grounded in reality. Bobby Collins’ You’re Not Coming With Us starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, November 19, at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center, 3385 NE 188 St., Aventura. Tickets cost $39.50 to $44.50.
