Rob Schneider Bio & Early Career Beginnings
Rob Schneider started early when he was still performing standing up in high school. At that time he was led by his older brother. During this time he played as the support act for the San Francisco rock band Heads Up. After graduation, he continued to perform in nightclubs and radio shows. Later he won a spot on the HBO annual special for young comedians after opening a show for Dennis Miller. After that, his successful performance led to a position as a writer on the famous comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live.
While writing on Saturday Night Live, he was promoted to a cast member where he played characters such as ‘Orgasm Guy’, ‘The Richmeister’, ‘The Sensitive Naked Guy’, and ‘Tiny Elvis’.
