Craig Robinson

Special Event

Craig Robinson

Beginning as a stand-up comedian, Robinson first made his mark in the comedy circuit at the 1998 Montreal "Just For Laughs" Festival. Now headlining venues and festivals across the country, he does both solo shows as well as full-band sets with his band, The Nasty Delicious.

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 Craig was studying education in Chicago that he also discovered his love of acting and comedy when he joined the famed Second City Theatre.

Craig is best known for his portrayal of Daryl Philban in NBC's "The Office" but has also starred in such movies as "Dolemite Is My Name," "Knocked Up," "This Is The End," the "Hot Tub Time Machine" series, "Morris From America," "Tragedy Girls," "Dolemite Is My Name" with Eddie Murphy, "Timmy Failure," and "Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon" with Kate Hudson. Craig also starred in his very own sitcom, "Mr. Robinson" on NBC, as well as "Ghosted" on FOX.

The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be (i.e. closer to the stage). Click here for a more detailed explanation of seating policies.
