ROBIN ROBERTS: COMEDIAN, SONGWRITER, JUMBLE ENTHUSIAST
Wanna know what's funny about cramps, racism, crazy parents or being a birthday clown? Listen to comedian/songwriter Robin Roberts. Robin's unsentimental tunes are funny because they don't try to be; they tell the hideous truth. "Get Therapy Before You Have Kids", "More Male Nudity", "I'm a Clown", "Lately There's a Lot of Lesbians in my Life", and "Testosterone" are some of her signature songs. Robin created and starred in "Cinemascoop", a pilot for Showtime, and was a writer/voice performer on the Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 radio show, creating the internationally syndicated character, Patty the Depressed Clown. She wrote comedy for the CBS Morning Circus radio comedy service and Premier Radio. Robin's self-produced stand-up show, Comedy Schmomedy, ran for 8 years in L.A., garnering 4 Picks of the Week in the L.A. Weekly, and 2 Best Bets in the L.A. Times. The Pasadena Weekly says of Robin: "Her timing is dead-on, with an oddly endearing New York edge that sharpens her live act." She's been featured on Dr. Demento, National Lampoon Radio, www.theointment.com, and Laugh Trax, syndicated comedy for Sprint Wireless. Contact Robin to purchase her album, "Ten Schmomedy Songs!"
