About Robert Schimmel
Passes accepted Thursday, Friday and Sunday.Robert Schimmel's big break came when Rodney Dangerfield spotted him and invited him to appear on HBO's "Young Comedians Special." Since then he has gone on to appear on "Conan O'Brian," "The Simpsons," "Comic Strip Live," Joan Rivers, Oprah and was a writer for Fox's "In Living Color."
Schimmel's extraordinary rise can be traced to his unique brand of blue humor that pushes the envelope of adult humor and modern sexual attitudes. His groundbreaking style earned him a place among "The 100 Greatest Standups of All Time" on Comedy Central.
Schimmel is also a regular on the Howard Stern Show and stole the show at last year's prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Festival. His new CD was produced by William E. McEuen, the man behind the comedy careers of Steve Martin, Steven Wright and Sam Kinison. "Real humor comes from real life. That's where I draw my inspiration," says Schimmel.
