Actor and comedian Rob Schneider’s mix of self deprecating wit and goofball antics have served him well in Hollywood, where he started as a writer for Saturday Night Live and swiftly went to the screen to do his own content. His early movies were The Waterboy, Big Daddy and Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigolo. He made his directorial debut with Big Stan in 2007.
Performer, writer, comic. Produced October 31, 1963 in San Francisco, California. The son of a property broker and kindergarten teacher, Shneider grew up south of town in Pacifica and was the youngest of five kids. After graduating from Terra Nova High School, he set out on the nightclub circuit to continue a lifetime career in comedy.
Shortly, he was performing his own material and was a cast routine until 1994 when he left to pursue his movie career.
Adored by crowds and panned by critics, it prompted another movie, The Animal, which met with equal success in 2001.
Schneider made his directorial debut with Big Stan in 2007. The penitentiary comedy starred Schneider and David Carradine. Reuniting with Adam Sandler, Schneider had a modest part in You Do Not Mess With the Zohan (2008). He’s finished several movie projects, which are anticipating release.
