Bobby Slayton (born May 25, 1955) is an American stand-up comedian sometimes referred to as "The Pitbull of Comedy" or "Yid Vicious". Slayton, a native of Scarsdale, New York, is probably best known for a supporting role in the 2001 film Bandits, and as a frequent guest on The Adam Carolla Show.


Slayton is known for his intense style of stand-up comedy. He adopts a mixed style of complaining, insulting, personal story-telling, not entirely unlike Don Rickles .

He has been featured on many popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin and Bean, Tom Leykis, and Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw. He played Joey Bishop in the 1998 movie The Rat Pack and a character named simply "Slayton" in The Mind of the Married Man.[1] He also appeared as himself on the IFC television show "Maron" in 2013.

Slayton has a distinctive gravelly voice. He performed voiceovers on animated shows like Dr. Katz and Family Guy.

He was featured on many television shows including The Tonight Show, Politically Incorrect, as well as Comic Relief and his own stand-up special on HBO.[2][3]
