Emmy nominated actor and bona-fide comedy star Rob Schneider will be returning to Singapore with a brand new show, ‘AN EVENING WITH ROB SCHNEIDER’ on April 16, 2018 at Kallang Theatre.
Known for his trademark blend of character and comedic acting, Schneider is one of the most popular touring acts in comedy.
He created and stars in the docu-series ‘Real Rob’, which focused on the day-to-day hijinks of Rob’s life. The series marked the first time an actor wrote, produced, starred in, directed and financed an entire season of a television show.
Schneider first came to prominence on NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live,’ along with his SNL friends Adam Sandler, Tim Meadows, and David Spade. He has starred in some of the top comedy features of the past 20 years including ‘Grown Ups,’ ‘You Don’t Mess With The Zohan,’ ‘Big Daddy’ and ‘The Waterboy.’
In 2009, after a nearly twenty-year hiatus, Schneider made his return to stand-up comedy. He has released two albums since then. ‘Registered Offender’ and ‘Soy Sauce and the Holocaust’ and has received rave reviews for his international comedy tours.
Schneider began writing jokes as a teenager, appearing at local comedy clubs such as the “Holy City Zoo ” which was made famous by Robin Williams. He made his major network television debut in 1987 performing stand-up on “The David Letterman Show.”
In 1989 Lorne Michaels saw Schneider’s appearance on HBO’s “13th Annual Young Comedians Special” and hired him as a writer on “Saturday Night Live.” Schneider quickly became a regular. During his four seasons at “SNL”, Schneider created characters that people around the country imitated and adored including the “copy machine guy,” the “orgasm guy ” and the “put your weed in there guy.”
As part of the SNL writing staff, Schneider was nominated for three Emmys and won a Peabody Award.
Schneider last performed in Singapore in 2013.
