NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Mobile Marketing company ProTexting paired with America’s most loved Comedian Wali Collins to make a series of four comedy videos showing just how funny text messaging can be.

It’s also the first time a mobile marketing company has worked with a professional Comedian to tell their story and deliver their message about the power of text messaging. Another first–this is the first time a Comedian created a hilarious improv routine using texting and technology before a live audience.
