Craig Robinson:

Appeared 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.

Todd Rexx:

For almost 2 decades, Todd Rexx aka T-Rexx has been a natural who quickly wins over any audience with his cunning wit, over the top impersonations and brilliant crowd interaction. His on stage antics, accompanied by his twisted imagination, create a comedic concoction that captivates audiences, literally leaving them rolling in the aisles, crying for more. If you’re in the market for a new generation comedian, then look no further! Todd is a true disciple of crossover comedy, who applies his sheer talent and genius to create an off center style of comedy comprised of a mixed bag of personal experience, everyday observations, and hypothetical situations to connect with any audience.

Born in Long Branch, New Jersey, Todd was adopted at birth by a loving caucasian couple and immediately scurried to his new home in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, a multi-cultural artsy suburb of Cleveland. There he attended different schools and at each one, to the dismay of his parents, quickly established himself as the "class clown." When Todd was ten, he and his family moved to Silver Spring, Maryland, where he continued to “bless” classrooms with impersonations, sound effects, jokes, and comedic antics that not only classmates would laugh at, but teachers and staff as well. His classroom comedy continued through junior high, high school, and two years of junior college (basically 13th grade) where he studied television production. In 1992, after encouragement from friends and family, Todd finally brought his talents to the stage at The Comedy Café in Washington, D.C., and hasn’t looked back since. Todd prides himself with being able to connect with any audience presented to him. His multi-cultural background enables him to transcend barriers and truly entertain all.

Todd’s comedic exploits have taken him to Europe, Japan, Canada, Mexico, U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as coast to coast nationally, touching almost every state in the union. He has worked with Jerry Seinfeld, David Allen Grier, Dave Attell, Jeffery Ross, Ray Romano, Chris Rock, Bernie Mac, Russell Peters, Dave Chappelle, Craig Robinson and Bill Burr. His comedic pursuits landed him his own headline gig, “The Todd Rexx Show” at the world famous Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV.

Todd’s talents have not been limited to live performances, however. Todd has made numerous television appearances, including BET’s Comicview (1994-2005), Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1995), HBO’s Def Comedy Jam All-StarsComedy Factory (Netherlands),Raymond is Late (Netherlands), Rumbles (HDNet), Baggin’  (VH1). He has also appeared in such films as Premonitions (Latte Stone Films), NTV (Grifftyme Productions), I’ll Be Back (DeVry institute industrial film from Hope Productions), Love Jones (Newline Cinema),For the Love of Money (Pee-Air Productions), The Fear Chamber (Night Light Films). He is currently a card carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild as well as AFTRA. He also currently headlines shows globally. If you get the chance to see him live, do yourself a favor and do so.
