The best comedy stems from real-life experiences—in Reno Collier’s case, years of teaching P.E. and bartending certainly gave him a lot to choose from. People-watching jobs like his create the perfect grist for comedy, so it’s no wonder Reno’s stand-up keeps audiences all across the country laughing. Spoken Giants is thrilled to welcome Reno as part of the new frontier for comedy.
Over nearly two decades, Reno has built a reputation by selling out colleges and comedy clubs nationwide. Furthermore, he’s been on a variety of successful arena tours with comedy superstars like Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworty, Bill Engvall, and Ron White. Reno also headlined the Comic on Duty tour for American troops stationed across the globe, and he is now the national spokesperson for A Soldier’s Child, which serves the children of fallen military personnel.
Not only has Reno graced the stand-up world, but also the world of television and film. His extensive TV credits include NBC's Late Friday, The Martin Short Show, TBS’s Blue Collar Comedy: The Next Generation, his own Comedy Central Special, and The Roast of Larry the Cable Guy. He also made appearances on the feature films Witless Protection and Jingle All The Way 2, and has hosted several hit TV shows and specials.
