Bobby Henline is an American hero who spreads joy and hope through his love of stand-up comedy. On April 7th, 2007, tragedy struck when Bobby’s Humvee was hit by a roadside bomb just north of Bagdad, during his 4th tour to Iraq with the U.S. Army. Bobby was the only survivor of five men in the vehicle and was burned over 38% of his body. After 47 surgeries, he was encouraged by his Occupational therapist to try stand-up comedy. In August, of 2009, the “Well-Done Comedian” was born. Bobby believes that God kept him alive for a reason. He believes his mission is to help create awareness for burn survivors, to inspire people to live life to the fullest, and to heal others through his story and laughter. Bobby’s self-deprecating comedic style will leave you in stiches and will burn in your heart forever.

Bobby lives in San Antonio, TX. He performs regularly at the Laugh Out Loud in San Antonio, and has also performed The Laugh Factory, The LA Improv and in Las Vegas at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club. Bobby has appeared on the Today Show, The NY Times, Readers Digest, the Huffington Post, Time Magazine, NBC’s The Doctors, PBS “Coming Back with Wes Moore” and on Showtimes “Comedy Warriors” 2016 “Sophie and The Raising Sun.”
