Though always the classically struggling artist, Rob is an award-winning filmmaker, published author and produced playwright.
He has also produced, directed and acted on stage and film & video, though not currently active.
His body of work is an eclectic mix of mostly comedy, whether written, performed or produced behind the camera/microphone and starring others.
He considers himself a student and an aficionado of the iconic clowns of the past: Chaplin, Keaton, W.C. Fields, The Marx Brothers, on up to the comedians of the 60s/70s television variety era like Sid Caesar, Ernie Kovacs, Milton Berle, et al. Three of his books are collections of essays on the great laugh-getters of the early film and television eras.
His main living has been as a graphic artist, in print publishing.
He currently lives in the rural mountains of central California, working on various written projects in various stages of production.
And yes, he told the Aristocrats Joke better than anyone else – and has the award to prove it. But please, don't request him to repeat it here.
