  • Hot Tub Time Machine
  • Pineapple Express
  • Jimmy Kimmel Show
  • Craig Robinson:

    Currently appearing in the ninth and final season of the Emmy-winning “The Office” on
    NBC, Robinson portrays acerbic Dunder-Mifflin employee Darryl Philbin. He is definitely a
    world away from his original career intentions; before deciding to pursue his comedy career full
    time, Robinson was a K-8 teacher in the Chicago Public School System. He earned his
    undergraduate degree from Illinois State University and his Masters of Education from St.
    Xavier University. It was while he was studying education in Chicago that he also discovered his
    love of acting and comedy when he joined the famed Second City Theatre.
     
    As a stand-up comedian, Robinson first made his mark in the comedy circuit at the 1998
    Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival. That year, he also won the Oakland Comedy Festival
    Awards and the Miller Genuine Draft 1996 Comedy Search. He soon went on to perform his act
    on “The Jimmy Kimmel Show,” and “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Now headlining venues and
    festivals across the country, he does both solo acts as well as full-band sets – “The Nasty
    Delicious” – tying together his lyrical comedy with his finesse at the piano. Whether Robinson
    shows up with just his keyboard or also with his seven-man band, the clubs are packed to the
    brims with raucous laughter in response to the musical comedy on display.
     
    His rise to success with “The Office” and his stand-up prowess quickly brought him to
    the forefront with industry comedy maven Judd Apatow. Robinson made audiences question
    their notions of vanity playing the sensitive bouncer in KNOCKED UP. He then kept audiences
    glued to their seats as one of the henchman hunting Seth Rogen and James Franco’s bumbling
    stoner characters in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, and made fans squirm when he co-starred with
    Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO.
     
    In February of this year, he will be heard as a character in The Weinstein Company’s first
    animated feature, ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH. And in May, finally getting his due with his
    first leading man role, Robinson is starring in the comedy WE THE PEEPLES for Lionsgate and
    producer Tyler Perry. Playing a pushy boyfriend, Robinson surprises his fiancé-to-be (Kerry
    Washington) who is on a trip home to visit her family and discovers that the family is not only
    surprised to see him, but has never even heard of him.
     
    Later this summer, he appear as himself as part of the Hollywood juggernaut that makes
    up the Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg comedy world. With the likes of James Franco, Paul
    Rudd, Jason Segel, Seth Rogan, Emma Watson, Danny McBride, and a slew of their other actortype
    friends, Sony Pictures’ THIS IS THE END tells us what will happen while attending a party
    at James Franco's house the celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.
     
    In June, Robinson will begin production alongside Rob Corddry, Clark Duke, and story
    addition Adam Scott on the sequel to the 2010 ensemble comedy feature HOT TUB TIME
    MACHINE for MGM and director Steve Pink. The original story follows three grown men
    (Corddry, Craig Robinson, and John Cusack) as they visit the hot tub where they once partied,
    discover it is now a time machine, and travel back to their raunchy heyday in the mid-1980’s.
     
    Robinson has made it a point to flesh out every element of his resume, turning in a
    hilarious cameo in NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: BATTLE OF THE SMITHSONIAN as one of the
    Tuskegee Airman, lending his comedy genius to fellow Apatow devotee Danny McBride in his
    HBO television series “East Bound & Down,” and voicing several characters on “The Cleveland
    Show.” Robinson was heard in the final chapter of the SHREK film series, SHREK FOREVER
    AFTER, as one of the new characters being introduced to the repertoire, a member of the ogre
    clan and the camp’s resident chef named “Cookie.” And taking a dramatically different role,
    Robinson starred in the independent feature FATHER OF INVENTION with Kevin Spacey and
    Camilla Belle.
     
    Robinson’s additional credits include the films THE GOODS with Jeremy Piven, MISS
    March, WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY, Tyler Perry’s DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL and
    television shows including “Friends,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He
    also turned up as a preacher in the demonstrative web video celebrity push in support of Gay
    rights, “PROP 8: THE MUSICAL” with Jack Black, John C. Reilly, and Neil Patrick Harris.
     
    Robinson currently resides in Los Angeles.
