Robinson can also be seen in Tyler Perry's film Daddy's Little Girl and Judd Apatow's Knocked Up. In addition, he is currently shooting the lead role in the film Pineapple Express. Robinson has also performed on late night, including The Jimmy Kimmel Show , HBO's Sketchpad and Real Time with Bill Maher.
Robinson first shined at the 1998 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, which led into a development deal at FOX Broadcasting Company. He also won the 1998 Oakland Comedy Festival as well as the Miller Genuine Draft 1996 Comedy Search. Robinson is now selling out comedy clubs across the country. He attributes his wit, charm and comedic gifts first to family, and then to the days when imitating Richard Nixon brought laughter to everyone. His first real taste of performing was in college, where the extraordinary material, delivery and commanding stage presence, was developed. He had a gift, and the Chicago comedy clubs took notice, as audiences raved about this fresh, about-face comedy. Robinson hopes to follow in the footsteps of previous Montreal, Oakland and Miller Genuine Draft performers including Jay Leno, Jamie Foxx, Ray Romano and D.L. Hughley.
