Bobby Collins Comedy at the Palace - Nov. 3

Bobby Collins Comedy at the Palace on Nov. 3

“Comedian Bobby Collins has an ability to truthfully translate the human condition. Audiences across the country relate to his comedic characterizations as he exposes the humor of day-to-day situations as well as serving up resplendent rants on world events.




Through precise physical timing and impeccable audience insight, he has honed his talents while performing from hole in the wall clubs to sold out theaters. Bobby Collins' rise to top headlining, comedic master was inevitable. His true dedication to his craft is what keeps his vibrant shows consistently sold out.

A native New Yorker, Collins possesses a confidence and genuine everyman likeability that can only be earned. He knows what it's like to work a day job, in order to pursue a dream. He's flipped his share of burgers, as well as signing on as a substitute high school history teacher, to pay the bills - all the while performing in comedy clubs at night. 


Through his personal appearances at Comedy Clubs, Theaters, Corporate and Charity events, coupled with innumerable television appearances on legendary shows like Letterman, The Tonight Show with both Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno, Collins continues to add new fans of all ages to his loyal base of diehard followers.”

Summer Intern 2017 - reflections from Layla

Hi! My name is Layla and I interned for the Stamford Downtown Special Services District this summer. I really enjoyed the experience because I had the opportunity to try out usual intern work (scanning, copying, getting the mail, making phone calls, etc) to better prepare me for future jobs as well as work on bigger projects on my own.


 I really appreciated the respect and trust the employees, who were many years my seniors (in experience), showed me. There wasn’t concern that I nor my fellow intern Paige couldn’t complete tasks we were given. Paige had to put together the concierge book and prepare for Restaurant Weeks which looked very stressful, and I created the brochure book for available retail spots downtown. It was challenging but Jackie, the Vice President and our supervisor, let us do the work and only stepped in if we needed help. 
I felt very valued and useful in the office, and it’s a good feeling to know that you are contributing to something important and have helped other people in some way. On my last day MaryAnn, the receptionist, said to me that she realized after today “she would have to start getting the postal mail again.” Even a little thing like that, knowing that for over a month I’d given her a small break in her day by not having to get the mail herself, was really important to me. 

I personally feel more capable after having had this experience. The kindness and humor of the people in the office along with the opportunity to complete important work made for a great experience that I will always be grateful for.
