Hall of Fame
Robbie Pickard is one of the fastest-rising comics in Southern California. His sharp, tightly-written material paired with his laid-back delivery have been winning over audiences across the country. Waiting tables at the Irvine Improv his last two years of college, he was nearly fired on a daily basis for watching the comics while his customers waited 30 minutes for their mozzarella sticks. It wasn’t a job—it was like going to comedy school. After graduating from UC Irvine, Robbie decided to turn his love of comedy into a career. In a short time, Robbie has already performed at many of the top comedy clubs in the country The Improv (Hollywood, Brea, Irvine, Ontario), The World Famous Comedy Store, The Ice House, Caroline’s on Broadway, The Broadway Comedy Club, Stand Up NY and many more. He has currently been hitting the road with headliners Sadiki Fuller and Tom Clark, touring all across the Pacific Northwest. Robbie is a regular performer on Comedy Juice, recently hailed by Sirius Satellite Radio as "the best standup show in the country.” He was selected to perform in the California Comedy Festival, and was a finalist in Orange County’s Funniest Person Competition. Soon after, producers from National Lampoon caught his act and gave him a role in their film, "Dirty Jokes The Movie." Robbie has opened for some of the hottest comedians working today Bert Kreischer, Darren Carter, Tom Segura, Jamie Kaler, Sam Tripoli, and Owen Benjamin to name a few. In 2008, Robbie started producing and hosting his own weekly show at his alma mater, UC Irvine. Monday Night Comedy @ The Anthill Pub has gone on to be one of the most successful recurring social events that the school has ever seen. With top headliners from around the country on a weekly basis, the crowd contains many students who have graduated and still come back each week to catch the show. Robbie currently resides in Santa Monica, CA, and can be seen live all over Los Angeles, Orange County and the rest of the country.
