Rob Riggle          

Actor and Political Satirist, "The Daily Show" and "Saturday Night Live"; Former U.S. Marine / Marine Reserves

Rob Riggle was born in Louisville, Kentucky and raised in Overland Park, Kansas. He went to Shawnee Mission South High School and then onto the University of Kansas. He graduated with a B.A. in Theater & Film. Then he joined the United States Marine Corps. Then he got a Masters in Public Administration. Then he finally grew a pair and decided to chase his dream of being a comedian, actor and writer.

Mr. Riggle began his comedy career in 1997 in New York City while still on active duty in the Marine Corps. He took classes and eventually taught classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. He spent 7 years at the UCB in New York, studying, teaching and performing. He also studied Method Acting in New York for three years.

Rob plays all major sports and most “Country Club” sports (with the exception of hunting real humans).

Rob lives in Los Angeles, California these days. Prior to that he lived in New York for 10 years! However, there’s a good chance he’ll be coming to a town near you in the not too distant future. Riggle is on the road, performing stand up all across America these days!
