Best Parody or Comedy Account
Once upon a time, Bob Menery was an unemployed comedian and part-time country club caddie who held the bags of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and slept in his car in the Hollywood Hills. But in 2017, everything changed when videos showcasing his “golden voice” went viral. Through his uncanny ability to sound like a seasoned sports broadcaster, Menery has taken social media by storm over the past 18 months by dubbing his NSFW play-by-play over some of the most iconic (and absurd) moments in sports history.
His meteoric rise is no coincidence as fans, now more than ever, crave unfettered alternatives to traditional sports commentary. Menery’s fans range from Snoop Dogg to meme accounts like Daquan and his popularity (1.7M followers on Instagram alone) has helped him garner opportunities from brands that include a national TV spot for Buffalo Wild Wings during March Madness.
