Rob, a naturally shy guy, developed his comedic stylings after many years of avoiding the limelight. It was finally his stepping on stage, and telling his first joke that allowed Rob to graduate from comedic potential to comedic possible. Rob has rubbed elbows with first-rate comedians and has garnered respect and appreciation by sharing the backstage world with his comedy family. He now lives his passion and enjoys giving back to his comedy community by, what he calls, facilitating others to find their humor. His best advice: Do the drive!
