Rob Schneider News
Rob is one of the busiest comedians in Hollywood, apart from appearing in good friend Adam Sandler’s movies, he also finds time to do stand-up and direct his own movie. Big Stan (2008) was his directorial venture and was produced by Rob himself.
This talented boy was discovered by Dennis Miller, after he saw Rob taking part in a HBO comedy special. He was the immediately taken on board Saturday Night Live (1988–1994). Here, he got a chance to work with and become friends with Adam Sandler, Chris Farley and David Spade. Rob left the show in 1995 and got his own show with CBS. But the show with CBS did not work out and was cancelled just after a few episodes. Not disheartened, Rob shifted his attention towards movies. He got to play supporting roles in many hit films like Home alone 2 (1996) and Down Periscope (1996). He continued work and appeared in many of Adam Sandler’s films whose career had taken off after SNL.
Being patient paid off for him after he got the lead role in the comedy, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999). The movie was made on tight budget, as there weren’t many expectations from it. But to everyone’s surprise the film did well, and was the sleeper hit of the year. From thereon, he played mostly these weird transitional characters who undergo changes in the film. The formula seemed to work as he delivered two more similar hits in The Animal (2001) and The Hot Chick (2002). Rob continues to work mainly in films belonging to the buddy-comedy genre.
Not much is known about his personal life other that the fact that Rob was married to a woman named London King in 1988, but divorced from het two years later. He has a child with her. He later married Helena Schneider in 2002, but this marriage too ended in divorce.
