A former P.E. teacher, West Virginia native Reno Collier has endeared himself to a wide range of audiences from college students to church softball teams. With a contagious laugh and friendly, almost intoxicating demeanor, he is always a crowd favorite.
Reno's journey began at the Punchline Comedy Club in Atlanta, GA where he tended bar to supplement his day job. One night he found himself on stage during the weekly open mic night. His unique outlook on life - mixed with a six-pack - was instantly popular and provided a platform to launch a career as a comedian.
Reno has built a reputation by selling out comedy clubs and colleges nationwide. In 2005 he joined Larry The Cable Guy on the hugely successful " Tour of America".
Reno's other national tours look more like a comedian's wish list than a resume, including theater and arena tours with the legendary Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Ron White. In January 2007, he re-joined Larry The Cable Guy for his wildly successful arena tour currently spanning the United States and Canada.
Reno's past TV credits include NBC's "Late Friday", "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher", "The Martin Short Show", VH-1's "The List", and Comedy Central's "Premium Blend". Reno also appeared in his own Comedy Central special as well as the hugely popular "Roast of Larry the Cable Guy". He was featured in the films Witless Protection, Hula Palooza, Jingle All the Way 2, and Them Idiots.
In Addition,Reno headlined the "Comics on Duty" tour for American troops stationed in Iraq, Africa, and the Middle East. He is a regular fixture on the Bob & Tom syndicated radio show and Country Music Television CMT, hosting various specials for the network. He has performed at the prestigious HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO and the Montreal Comedy Festival. He can currently be heard during his weekly call-ins to the Blue Collar Comedy Channel on Sirius Satellite Radio. He also was the host of The NBC series "Great American Roadtrip" and Animal Planets extreme fishing show "Top Hooker".
