Huntington, NY (November 16, 2015) – The Paramount Comedy Series is proud to present hometown comic Bob Nelson on January 15th at 8 pm.

Bob Nelson was fellow comedian Rodney Dangerfield’s opening act for eight of the most popular years of Dangerfield’s career. Nelson was prominently featured in two of Dangerfield’s enormously popular HBO standup comedy showcases, alongside other comedy phenomes like Rosanne Barr and Sam Kineson. That led to two HBO specials starring Bob Nelson, including the ground breaking classic Nelson Schmelson. Dangerfield said, “Bob Nelson and I used to work together, but I got rid of him, who wants to work with someone who’s funnier than they are!”
Since working with Rodney Dangerfield, Bob Nelson has become a successful actor starring in box office hits including “This Is My Life” and “Kindergarten Cop.” Today, Nelson plans to create a brand new comedy brand on Long Island starting at The Paramount on January 15th. Make sure to stop by for a night that The New York Post calls, “Truly a multimedia assault on the funnybone, Nelson not only relies on verbal comedy but visual as well. There’s bright stuff here in a performance totally unfounded in reason but soaring on comic invention.”
