Emmy-nominated actor Rob Schneider is known the world over for his trademark blend of character and comedic acting.
Schneider recently started his new television comedy series, Real Rob. The self-financed, eight-episode, independently produced comedy series was directed, co-written and stars Schneider with his real life wife, Mexican television producer Patricia Azarcoya. Real Rob comes two years after Rob, the CBS sitcom that Schneider also wrote, produced, and starred in.
Schneider is currently filming The Ridiculous Six with Adam Sandler, which is set to be the first feature film distributed by Netflix. This film marks the eighteenth collaboration between the Sandler and Schneider. Their longtime friendship has spanned some twenty-five years and produced comedic hits such as Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, 50 First Dates, Big Daddy and The Waterboy. Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, produced several films written by and starring Schneider, including Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, The Hot Chick and The Animal. Schneider has appeared in 50 films since his major network TV debut in 1987 on The David Letterman Show. Rob is also remembered from his four seasons on Saturday Night Live, which earned him three Emmy nominations and a Peabody Award.
In 2009, after a nearly twenty-year hiatus, Schneider made his return to stand-up comedy. He has released two albums since then, “Registered Offender” and “Soy Sauce and the Holocaust.”
