Bobby Farrelly is an acclaimed film director, screenwriter, and producer. Along with his brother Peter, the Farrelly Brothers are world-famous for their iconic comedies, including Dumb & Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Kingpin, Hall Pass, and many others. Their films have grossed well over $1 billion at the box office.
As a solo artist, Bobby has also produced the award-winning documentary The Lost Son of Havana, and has directed many hit TV shows, including Loudermilk, The Now, and Trailer Park Boys. In March 2023 Bobby released the hit movie Champions, starring Woody Harrelson and Kaitlin Olson, a heartfelt comedy that centers around a basketball coach who helms a team of players with intellectual disabilities. In his quest for authenticity, Bobby was committed to hiring only actors who are differently-abled to play the team. The result was not only ground-breaking, but touching and uproarious.
In 2020 Bobby and Peter Farrelly were honored with the Morton E. Ruderman Award in Inclusion by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their inclusive and accurate depictions of people with differing abilities. Bobby’s newest film Dear Santa, starring Jack Black, recently wrapped production for Paramount Pictures.
