Catch A Rising Star Comedy presents Imus in the Morning Co-host, Rob Bartlett!

Rob Bartlett started performing stand-up comedy in 1978 hoping it would lead to a career in acting. Nearly 30 years later, Rob has become one of the most versatile performers around. He is a successful actor, standup comedian, radio personality and writer.
 
Rob started in stand-up comedy at Richard M. Dixon’s White House Inn, a talent showcase club on New York’s Long Island run by the presidential look-alike. In the early years, Rob supported himself by day as an elevator operator and telephone salesman for radio advertising. It was at Dixon’s club where Rob met a 17-year-old Eddie Murphy, and the two became fast friends and formed two-thirds of the improvisational trio The Identical Triplets.
 
When the trio broke up shortly after Eddie’s debut on Saturday Night Live, Rob went on as a solo act and became a headliner in comedy clubs and colleges across the country. He has headlined at the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Atlantic City’s Tropicana and Hilton Hotels, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resort and Casino. On television, Rob has appeared as a stand up comedian on the MTV Half Hour Comedy Hour, Standup Spotlight on VH1 and on Late Night with David Letterman and Conan O’Brian.
 
In 1986, Rob became a regular in-studio guest of Don Imus at radio station WNBC 66AM. When the station was sold and the Imus in The Morning Program moved to the WFAN studios in Astoria, Rob became a contract player, and has since written and performed some of the show’s popular cast of characters. He has brought some of them, such as Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Camilla Parker Bowles, former president Bill Clinton and Dr. Phil to the new Imus In the Morning set at MSNBC. Rob appeared in the films The Sex O’Clock News (1984), Spin the Bottle (1999), Table One (2000), and provided the voice of Boss Baker Bunny in the animated feature, The Easter Egg Escapade (2005)
 
Rob’s television credits include starring roles on the Paramount/CBS comedy special What’s Alan Watching? ABC’s Move the Crowd, and a recurring role on NBC as attorney Milton Schoenfeld on Law & Order, Special Victims Unit. Rob is very proud to have been voted one of the “Top Ten Worst” wrestling announcers in history for his short-lived stint at color commentator of the WWF Monday Night Raw.  He is also the voice of Marty, the hyperactive dog, on the popular cartoon series Kenny the Shark.
 
Rob will be doing a meet & greet for guests directly after the show. He will be posing for pictures and signing autographs.
