A vaudeville style show with music by The Manhattan Dolls, Navy Veteran/Country Musician Rowdy Johnson. Featured headliner; severely wounded Veteran and nationally touring comedian Bobby Henline – “The Well Done Comedian”. Event raises funds for charities that support military & first responder families.
A veteran of Operation Desert Storm, Henline was inspired to re-enlist in the Army following the 9/11 attacks. On his fourth tour of duty to Iraq, his Humvee was struck by an IED blast that killed all the other passengers and left Henline with burns over 40% of his body. During his initial six-month hospital stay, his upbeat attitude and sense of humor inspired one of his therapists to challenge Bobby to try his hand at comedy. Bobby accepted the challenge and “The Well Done Comedian” was born. Henline appeared in the “Comedy Warriors” documentary, the Showtime series “Shameless” and film “Sophie and the Rising Sun.” When he is not touring comedy clubs, Bobby regularly speaks at schools, veteran organizations and healthcare facilities sharing his messages of life, love and joy – healing through humor.
