Best known for both his role on FX's hit series, "Rescue Me," and his thick Boston accent, Clarke has also starred in his own sitcom, "Lenny." No stranger to the big screen, he also appeared in "Monument Ave.," "Fever Pitch" and "Southie." His status as the most famous "saloon comic" in Boston during the 1980s was captured in the 2006 documentary, "When Standup Stood Out," which details his early career and affiliations with other Boston comics, such as good friends Steven Wright and Denis Leary.
A true "comic's comic," Slayton is often referred to as "The Pitbull of Comedy." Audiences will recognize him from his scene-stealing roles in movies like "Get Shorty," "Ed Wood," "Bandits" and "Dreamgirls." He's also been seen on "The Tonight Show" and "Politically Incorrect," was a series regular on HBO's "Mind of a Married Man" and appeared in the critically-acclaimed film, "The Rat Pack." His own one-hour Showtime special, "Born To Be Bobby," was released in April.
Within seconds of hitting the stage, Otto's mannequin, George, comes to life with an explosive barrage of insults, bad taste and pontifications about life that would even make a truck driver blush. Otto is a regular closing act at Caroline's on Broadway, The Riviera in Las Vegas, and many major Comedy Clubs around the country, and was most recently on "The Late Show with David Letterman."
