Rob Schneider will soon be visiting the Philippines for a one-night only stand up comedy show at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resort and Casino on October 28, 2013, 8 p.m.!
Now, you might ask: Why is Deuce Bigalow doing a stand-up show? As it turns out, the man that made male gigolos the finely-chiseled butt-of-all-jokes started out as a stand-up comedian. You know, the type that appears in front of a large, live audience with nothing but a mic in hand and a mind full of funny things.
Rob actually began writing jokes as a teenager appearing at local venues in his home city, San Francisco. The comedian (whose maternal grandmother happens to be pure Pinay!) eventually made enough people laugh that he got a slot in HBO’s “13th Annual Young Comedians Special” in 1990, which had him making even more people laugh. And one of them turned out be Lorne Michaels, the producer of that institution of laughter known the world over as Saturday Night Live.
Lorne gave him his first big break, and hired him to be a writer for the show. With his comic skills, he quickly graduated to being a full-time cast member, whereupon he played such classy characters like the one below, “Orgasm Guy”:
During his four seasons at SNL, Schneider received three Emmy nominations, and another from the U.S. broadcasting award-giving organization, the Peabody Awards. From there, his career took off, as he landed his first comedy film, 1999’s Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, which was then followed by The Animal, The Hot Chick, and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo in 2005.
Now, it all comes full circle for Rob as he returns to his roots of stand-up comedy, and treats Manila with his brand of humor that got Adam Sandler saying: “I’m putting this guy in all my movies!”
Sandler never really said that, but a quick look at his filmography will show you that yes, Sandler did put Schneider in all his movies…almost!
On the next page—before we catch the real deal on the date mentioned above—we’ll take a peek at the many faces of Deuce Bigalow as we’ve seen him in the Sandler movies. Why? Because his face looks funny, that’s why!
