Rob grew up in Ontario where his report cards all said the same thing, "behaviour sometimes distracts others," and he knew the entertainment world was calling.

A graduate of Seneca College's Broadcast Journalism Program, Rob moved to Kelowna in 2006 and spent many years broadcasting live to Kelowna on the radio before his move to Castanet. In the evenings you can find Rob all around the Okanagan Valley telling jokes as a professional comedian.

Whether he is on-air, in a video or on stage, Rob combines a brutal honesty with a likable innocence and a very quick wit; beware, his contagious smile! Rob has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in Canadian comedy including Gerry Dee (Mr. D), Brent Butt (Corner Gas) and film star and SNL alum Norm MacDonald!

Be sure to check out all of Rob's funny videos and galleries on our sister site, TheTango.net, and keep your eyes open for his Entertainment Week in Review video every weekend here on Castanet.
