WELL DONE COMEDIAN BOBBY HENLINE
A retired Army Staff Sergeant, Henline spent 13 years in the Army, completing 4 tours. On his 4th tour in Iraq, an IED exploded under his Humvee – 4/7/2007 is a day he will never forget . As he stumbled out of the wreck, a human torch, he was extinguished by the soldier he had replaced in the Humvee. With burns covering almost 40% of his body, fractured bones in his face, and his head burned to the skull, Henline was put into a medically induced coma and flown back to the states. During his 6-month hospital stay, Bobby remained upbeat, positive, and relied on humor to get him through each day - putting nurses in headlocks, keeping other wounded soldiers’ spirits up by telling jokes.
Today, Henline’s professional comedy includes performances at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, Laugh Factory, and Hollywood Improv. As an actor, credits include Sophie and the Rising Sun, Surviving Home, Shameless and MBF: Man’s Best Friend.
Brad Garrett shared "Bobby Henline is the bravest person I know, both in life and on the stage. I've had the opportunity to see him perform many times and he is downright hysterical. His fearlessness as a person and as a comic is so incredibly admirable. I consider it a true honor to work with Bobby as a fellow comedian, and am proud and grateful to call him my friend.”
An Army veteran wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2003 Joe spent almost two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center learning how to walk with what remained of his leg. In 2005, Joe underwent a below-knee amputation and 30 days later when he was fitted with his first prosthetic device he was already able to walk better than he had since his injury.
Joe began his comedy career in 2012 when he finally ran out of excuses of why he couldn’t get on stage and tell jokes. Winning the open mic competition at Magooby’s Comedy Club at his first show was just the start of great things to come. Now with a leg-up in the comedy world Joe performs across the country, pursuing his dream of helping others through laughter.
