This is the night we welcome back our absolute Favorite regular guest on our show…he’s a comedy GENIUS (no big deal)…but he’s also the object of my private fantasies (kind of a big deal)!

Robert Hawkins is an ex-army medic (U.S.) who grew up fast on the sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “I joined the army because I was 18 and bored with tenth grade”. After an honorable discharge from civilian jobs, he took the advice of his friends and tried stand-up comedy for the first time at the Improv in Dallas, Texas. Within four years Hawkins appeared on A&E’s “Comedy on the Road” with John Byner and was headlining comedy night clubs across the country as well as colleges and corporate parties. Hawkins moved west to San Francisco and broke into the Bay Area comedy scene with a strong showing in the 1993 San Francisco International Stand-Up Comedy Competition placing ninth out of hundreds. Hawkins recalls, “it was bogus man, I should have been eighth” The next year he went on to win the Fifth Annual Stand-Up Comedy Competition at California State University.
1996 was Robert’s break out year with a critically acclaimed appearance on Showtime’s “Full Frontal Comedy”. In July of 1996 he was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. His performance resulted in a sitcom development deal with Fox television. Robert made his network debut in October 1998 on NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”. A recent magazine article covering Hawkins’ stand-up wrote “comics like Robert Hawkins take the art form (stand-up comedy) to new highs and he is worth checking out if he comes to your town.”
