DOBIE MAXWELL- comic, radio personality, actor

http://www.dobiemaxwell.com

This week meet one of the people that helped Mel get started comedy and has been a mentor to her ever since, Dobie Maxwell!

Dobie's credits include an appearance on Late Night with Craig Ferguson and he's worked with such notable comedians as Jay Leno, Jeff Foxworthy,
Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, Tim Allen, Drew Carey,
Andrew "Dice" Clay, Richard Pryor, Sam Kinison,
Dennis Miller, Chris Rock, and many others too.

Dobie Maxwell has criss-crossed North America countless times as a comedian and has
appeared in 48 states and much of Canada.

 "I've been to places neither Rand nor McNally has ever heard of," he says. "I've got more miles on me
than the Space Shuttle."

Every show is unique and Dobie prides himself in never doing the exact same show twice.
"Miles Davis once said he played SOME of the same songs every night but he never played them
in exactly the same way. Well, me too. I like to do a one of a kind show for each individual audience,
even if I do more than one show in a single night. It's my personal gift to them and I want it to be special."

One thing Dobie has learned how to do is be versatile. "I had to," he says. "Or I would have been out of
the business early. I needed to learn to entertain a wide variety of audiences to get paid so that's what I did. Bookers have always told me they can put me in front of bikers or seniors or teenagers and I can pull off a show. They're right. But it took a lot of years to be able to do that. That's where the craftsmanship comes in. Comedy is truly a craft."
