Dobie Maxwell, a.k.a. "Mr. Lucky, " has been touring North America as a professional standup comedian since 1985. During that time, he has appeared in all 48 lower continental United States and all across Canada in comedy clubs, colleges and concert halls. Dobie has also done many other things of interest and had he been able to focus on one thing for all these years he wouldn't be "almost" famous. His sidetracking is the source for some great stories.
Dobie has performed with Drew Carey, SNL's Dana Carvey, Jeff Foxworthy, Rosie O'Donnell, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno and many others. He has developed over the years into a strong and seasoned live performer who now headlines his own shows. His energy on stage and ability to vanquish hecklers are legendary. Dobie has long been a "comic's comic", but he has finally realized that it's CUSTOMERS that pay cash for tickets, not other comics.
He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show, Entertainment Tonight and even hosted his own show for two years in his hometown of Milwaukee. Dobie has spent time as a morning radio host, co-host and regular guest on stations in Chicago, Reno, Milwaukee, Lansing, Tucson, Salt Lake City and been a featured guest on radio stations and in printed publications worldwide.
Dobie currently teaches comedy classes at Zanies Comedy Clubs in Chicago and has a six cassette audio course with a 56 page book called "Be Funny Make Money". He has taught the live classes and one day comedy seminars nationwide, from Laffs Comedy Club in Tucson to Uncle Funny's Comedy Club in Miami.
He has also taught one day seminars at Marquette University and several corporate sales meetings across North America. Dobie has also taught at and been asked to return to the prestigious Round Table Convention in Hollywood in which comedy writers from all over North America gather to learn all facets of the comedy business. That convention was started by Gene Perret, who was Bob Hope's head writer for many years and a writer and producer for The Carol Burnett Show and many other successful projects.
