Bob Zany is an American stand-up comedian. He is known for performing with his trademark cigar on stage. 

In 1976, he appeared as a contestant on The Gong Show. Between that time and a 1986 appearance on the TV special George Schlatter's Comedy Club, he had gained a significant amount of weight, which he was able to lose by the time he appeared as a contestant on To Tell the Truth in 1990.

Zany now appears weekly on the nationally syndicated radio program The Bob and Tom Show, and has his own segment called The Zany Report. In recent years, he has also guest-hosted portions of Jerry Lewis' Labor Day Telethon.

Zany also had a small role in the film Joe Dirt as the guy at the radio station who pushes Joe down at the beginning of the movie.

On September 16, 2006, he appeared on the Comedy Central special, The Friends of the Bob and Tom Show.

Zany appeared in the Steven Soderbergh film The Informant, released September 18, 2009. The movie is a dark comedy about a Decatur, Illinois agri-business giant's price-fixing scandal, and the bipolar whistleblower, Mark Whitacre, who is portrayed by Matt Damon. Zany plays Whitacre's lawyer, John Dowd, in the comedian-rich cast.

In June 2010 Zany toured Israel with the Comedy for Koby show, hosted by the Koby Mandell Foundation. Zany performed in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Raanana, Beit Shemesh, Haifa, Modi'in and Gush Etzion.
