The Man Simply Known as Bob is a stand-up comedian, producer, and gamer based in Wellington New Zealand.

Since 2016 I have performed in many comedy shows from open mics, line ups and Fringe Festival solo shows.

I have performed all over the country from Auckland to Queenstown and in between including a show in the republic of Whangamōmona.

Not only do I tell jokes, but I have also produced shows that let me and other comedians get up on stage and tell jokes. For the last 5 years, I have been producing all the shows for Cartel Comedy.

I have always been an avid gamer as a kid from the 90s. I remember when the original Playstation came out, spending endless hours trying to finish Crash Bandicoot, being mildly annoyed that Spyro the Dragon couldn't fly without power-ups, and jamming out to music in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

With the onset of the pandemic, I thought I would try this live-streaming thing and have yet to really look back since.

I have streamed all sorts of games from Minecraft (which I probably play too much of but it is so good), Untitled Goose Game (which I was speed running), Call of Duty, and more recently Star Wars: Jedi Survivor.

I stream on Twitch and you can also find me on YouTube.
