Smokin’ hot and full of flame, Henline’s comedic style is focused on making fun of not only himself, but others who may or may not unwittingly enter his circle of everyday living. Known as “The WellDone Comedian” by audiences and “Burnt Pa” by his grandkids, he keeps audiences rolling on the floor with his raw approach to his injuries as a burn survivor and living in a world that views him as “disabled.” His performance starts as a campfire, warming the audience up to laugh with him, and erupts into a bonfire, sparks flying!
Henline is a retired Army Staff Sergeant, last serving with the 82nd Airborne Division. He spent 13 years in the Army, completing four tours. While on his fourth tour in Iraq, three weeks after his arrival, an IED exploded under his Humvee – April 7, 2007, is a day he will never forget.
The four soldiers with him did not survive. As Henline stumbled out of the wreck, a human torch, he was extinguished by the soldier he had replaced in the Humvee. With burns covering 40% of medically induced coma for two weeks and flown back to the States.
During his initial six-month hospital stay, Bobby remained upbeat, positive, and relied on humor to get him through each day. Putting nurses in headlocks, trying to keep other wounded soldiers’ spirits up by telling them jokes, and singing a ditty over and over garnered the attention of his occupational therapist. She challenged him to go to an open mic night and try his hand at comedy, making him promise with a pinky swear. He kept his promise, and that experience started a new chapter in his life in 2010. He has been doing comedy whenever and wherever he can ever since.
A few of the most notable clubs Henline has performed in include Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, Las Vegas; Laugh Factory, Chicago; Hollywood Improv, Los Angeles, Zanies Nashville, Cozzys Comedy Club, Newport News.
Henline’s story and lived experiences have been featured in film, print, and electronic media, including the documentaries Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor, Healing Bobby, and Weight of Honor; on CNN, PBS KET, NPR, Today.com, and Time.com; Time Magazine, People Magazine, The Huffington Post, Guideposts, and Readers Digest; as well as television, radio, and podcasts from around the world.
Henline is also a motivational speaker and travels the world sharing his inspiring story and comedy.
