Comedian Bobby Mair began performing stand-up in 2005, as part of Humber College’s writing and performance programme. Finding that the daily confines of the course prevented him from gigging, Bobby decided to leave college and concentrate on comedy. Since then, he has performed all over the country and made numerous television appearances.
His big live debut was his Edinburgh showcase ‘Obviously Adopted’. The show generated many positive reviews including praise from The Guardian and The Scotsman.
He has since appeared on Channel 4’s 8 out of 10 Cats and BBC3’s, Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular, Sweat the Small Stuff and Russell Howard’s Good News. He can also be seen on Live at the Comedy Story on Comedy Central as well as Alex Zane’s’ Funny Rotten Scoundrels: Live from the Century Club as part of the London Live Channel. He also featured on the Edinburgh Fringe highlights show.
In 2009, Bobby was the ‘People’s Choice Winner’ at the Canadian Comedy Competition, Stand Up and Bite Me. He was also nominated for ‘Best Newcomer.’ In 2011, he won the whole Stand Up and Bite Me competition, walking away with their grand $10,000 prize. He performed a 30-minute television stand-up special entitled Comedy Now that was broadcast on Canada’s CTV channel in 2012
Bobby was the opening act at the NME Awards in 2014 and performed as the opening act for Doug Stanhope at Leicester Square Theatre.
Mair exudes a kind of effortless awkwardness and brings something fresh and downright disturbing. A bright, dark future surely awaits.
