Robert Leo "Bobby" Farrelly, Jr. (born June 17, 1958) is an American film director, screenwriter and producer.

Life and career

Farrelly was born in Cumberland, Rhode Island, the son of Mariann (née Neary), a nurse practitioner, and Robert Leo Farrelly, a doctor.[1] He is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He has been married to his wife Nancy since 1990. They have 2 children and a bulldog.

Bobby and his brother Peter Farrelly are known as Farrelly Brothers. They have written, directed, and produced several comedy films (often involving scenes intended as "gross-out" humor) including There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin, Shallow Hal, Me, Myself and Irene and Stuck on You. They also conceived the Seinfeld episode "The Virgin" (4.10).
