With an appearances on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and on the Tonight Show as Jay Leno’s correspondent, Rob O’Reilly is quickly gaining a reputation as an up-and-coming comedian to watch. In fact, he was recently named one of LA Weekly’s Top 10 Comedy Acts to Watch in 2012 and one of Funny Or Die’s 30 Under 30: Comedians to Watch.
It all began in Cleveland, Ohio, where Rob made his stand-up debut at a high school talent show and later won the city’s largest comedy competition. While attending Boston University on an academic scholarship, he became a finalist in the 2005 Boston Comedy Festival and retired any notions of a “normal career.”
With his youthful point-of-view making him a favorite at eleven NACA conferences, Rob now headlines colleges across the country, once booking 48 colleges at a single NACA. He is currently a writer for MTV’s Ridiculousness.
