About Keith Collins
English born Keith Collins began his professional stand-up career in 1968 when he received $10 as the opening act for international singing superstar Shirley Bassey (Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever) - the management asked for $8 back. Over the next 43 years Keith has appeared in many hundreds of clubs, colleges, theaters, and auditoriums in front of audiences ranging from 2 ( Bismarck, North Dakota) to 4,678 (Fox Theater, Atlanta) and 5.7 million (BBC Television). He is a regular guest on TV and Radio and had his own radio show in Canada, Not the World Service of the BBC. Also as a college professor, Keith appears regularly on the History Channel as a television historian and is Executive Producer of two upcoming television shows Another Man's Treasure and My Square Inch. Keith was a regular opening act and writer for Ron White's hugely successful Drunk in Public Tour including two performances at Columbus' Palace Theater. Keith's last and latest CD Keith Collins Live at The Boston Orpheum sold out although copies are still available at many charity shops and yard sales. Keith act includes such comedic rarities as amoeba juggling, animal proctology (he will pull a hat out of a rabbit), impersonations of all 266 Popes (except Boniface VI and Innocent IX), dancing with wolves with four left feet, explaining the game of cricket, and finally telling the five greatest and the three nastiest jokes of all time. This will be Keith's retirement show and where better than at the fabulous FUNNY BONE which most comics regard as the best room and the best audience in The United States.
