Randy Vinneau was born in Spokane, Washington at Deaconess Hospital. At the age of three, his family moved to his father's childhood stomping grounds of Deer Park, Washington. Shortly thereafter his brother, Kyle, and eventually his sister, Chloe, were born.
Home video footage and self-made audio recordings show that Randy had the spirit of an entertainer from the very beginning. His acute comedic timing is earliest remember by him when he was no older than four years of age. His grandmother had encouraged him to play his new guitar for the guests. Instead of playing right away he simply circled the audience as they awaited the rock concert. But it never began. Randy continued to circle them until they lost interest and assumed he was too shy to perform. After he was certain nobody was paying attention to him he jumped up on a chair and shredded some lead guitar riffs like no four-year-old before him. It was not long before everybody in attendance was in tears.
Randy attended the University of Washington on the Chick Evans Scholarship, the same scholarship that was the inspiration for Caddyshack. He graduated with a BA in Drama and a much greater appreciation for theater. While at college, he appeared in many play festivals, short films, and plays. Most notably he was A Visitor in Steve Martin's Picasso at the Lapin Agile. He would love the chance to play Schmendiman.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 2005 Randy has continued to appear in various short films, features, animations, and commercials. He starred in The Day I Don't Remember, an indie feature he made with fellow filmmaker friends.
