Beginning as a stand-up comedian, Robinson first made his mark on the comedy circuit at the 1998 Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival. Now headlining venues and festivals across the country, he does both solo acts and sets with his band, “The Nasty Delicious.” Before deciding to pursue his comedy career full-time, Robinson was a K-8 teacher in the Chicago Public School System. He earned his undergraduate degree from Illinois State University and his Master of Education degree from St. Xavier University. It was while he was studying education in Chicago that Robinson also discovered his love of acting and comedy when he joined the famed Second City Theatre.
