Over the past half decade, Craig Robinson has rose from being a bit character on the NBC cult hit The Office to becoming a brilliant scene-stealing character actor. His appearances in films like Hot Tub Time Machine, Pineapple Express and doing voice-over work on Shrek Forever After have cemented the Chicago-native as a top comedic personality. Though he’s established on-screen, Robinson’s roots remain in stand-up. Some of Robinson’s bits have translated into pop culture— after all, who could forget his turn behind the keyboards both in the Dunder-Mifflin warehouse and during that memorable scene with Rihanna in This is the End? This is the rare opportunity to catch a major personality like Robinson in an intimate setting doing what he does best: making people laugh.
