Rob Delaney is originally from Boston. After an idyllic childhood during which he was never, ever lonely, he attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He performs stand up regularly at the top comedy venues in Los Angeles, New York, and various comedy clubs across the United States. Rob is currently in development for both a pilot for Comedy Central and a book deal for Random House. His television credits include FUEL TV’s The Daily Habit, and the pilot Movie Nook for TBS. On Twitter, Rob has created a following of over 657,000 followers that grows every day. He’s been listed on “The Funniest People on Twitter” on such sites as the Huffington Post, Vice Magazine, Paste Magazine, Comedy Central, and Funny or Die. Most recently Rob was a contributing writer on the British version of the IT Crowd as well as the show Ridiculousness on MTV. Rob also sings the national anthem for the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

NYU Skirball has a rich and hilarious history of our fall comedy headliners breaking out into international stardom, including Zach Galifianakis, Aziz Ansari, Kristen Schaal and Reggie Watts. In partnership with the 2012 New York Comedy Festival we are proud to present NYU alumni Rob Delaney.
