“The Reverend” Bob Levy is an American stand-up comedian, radio personality, writer, and actor.
In 1990, he started to send jokes and song parodies to The Howard Stern Show that he had written. Levy then started to attend open mic nights hosted by the show’s writer, Jackie Martling. Later on, Martling gave Levy the nickname “The Reverend”, because he was filthy and he wanted to call Bob the opposite of what he was doing onstage.
By 2001, Levy had appeared on Comedy’s Dirtiest Dozen, performed at Woodstock ’94, and had opened for the Edgar Winter Group and Bachman Turner Overdrive.
In 2002, Levy entered himself in the World’s Meanest Listener contest held on The Howard Stern Show. He submitted clips of himself roasting Stern and the staff which were well received and made him a top three finalist. In 2004, he was one of the contestants on Get John’s Job contest. He was one of the hosts of The Killers of Comedy Tour, a comedy tour featuring several of the show’s guests and staffers. When the show moved to SiriusXM in 2006, Levy was the host of the show’s series of live comedy roasts.
From 2006 to 2010, Levy was a co-host of the weekly comedy show Miserable Men on Howard 101 on SiriusXM Radio.
Levy was a writer and regular on Kidd Chris’s morning radio show on WYSP in Philadelphia.
Levy is the former host of Rising with “The Reverend” Bob Levy with co-hosts Will Bozarth and John Kensil, on WNJC-AM in Philadelphia.
