His television credits range from "The Merv Griffin Show"

Mr. Carson remarked after Bob's first appearance,
"You won't laugh
any harder in five or six minutes, then you will at that guy... Bob Nelson!" Bob has many other television credits
including an Emmy Award, that he received for a children's show which aired in Philadelphia.

started Bob's cable television career by putting him in two of his own HBO specials.
"The Ninth Annual Young Comedians
Special", where Bob presented his classic football piece, and "It ain't Easy Bein' Me", where he introduced us to one
of his most popular characters... Jiffy Jeff! Bob went on to do two more HBO specials, this time they would be solo
