Bob Wilson was a stand up comedian, a terrific life partner, a procrastinator, and an abstract expressionist in his spare time. I’m Christine (“Xtine”), who lived with him for 20 years and am still wishing he hadn’t left our planet so soon. Because of my belief in the joy and passion he poured into his painting, I want to tell the story of our journey and the life we had together.
(Robert Ward Wilson)
1953 – 2013
While living in Boston in the 1980s, Bob attended the Museum School of Fine Arts and received his BFA from Tufts University. He also became a fixture in the standup comedy scene there, learning his chops at Catch A Rising Star and Play It Again Sam with other then-unknowns, such as David Cross and Jon Groff.
