Wali Collins is a regular at Comedy clubs across the United States and tours at Comedy clubs in Europe and Asia.
Collins’ television stand-up credits include NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, HBO, and Comedy Central. One of Wali’s greatest achievements was hosting an event featuring for Presidents Bush and Obama. Aside from being a gifted Comedian, Wali is also an accomplished drummer, producer, writer and teacher. So how does Wali’s background have anything to do with his book The Y’NEVANO Book of ENCOURAGEMENTS?
After College, Wali was working on being the best architect in New England, but his calling to be in show business was strong. He played in bands, but that wasn’t enough and he needed more. One day, he told his mother, that he had decided to give up being an architect and instead he was going to be a comedian. Her response was priceless, she said, "Y’NEVANO" (You never know). Soon Y’NEVANO became more than his mother’s encouragement to live a life without regrets, Y’NEVANO became a state of mind and it led Wali Collins to experience one great epiphany after another. If the Y’NEVANO philosophy could profoundly change Wali Collins life, he knew he could share the good news with everyone.
