He is an older son of two children and he went Poway High School at Poway in California. He was a wrestler while in high school.

When he was using drugs, he was competing in the wrestling tournaments and also won. When he started to work at Mad TV, the producer told him that he was not too funny and he will not get regulars jobs. Because of this, he suffered depression, he went back to the drugs and it ended the sobriety of 12 years. When he was fired from the TV for the second time, Lauren Dombrowski intervened for him.

When he was working in the coffee shop, it got closed and he went next door to ask for the job. It was the comedy store in the city of San Diego. It was called La Jolla Comedy Store. He was working there doing odd jobs and he decided that he can try out the standup comedy in the amateur nights.

Khalyla and Bobby were visiting the family in Philippines and she suffered a heart problem. She spent some weeks at the hospital and failed to go back to work in the nursing job. This is why she started a podcast to keep herself busy. Khalyla and Bobby are yet to be married.
