About Rob Little's NYE Late Show
Being positive is what life is all about for Rob Little. The force of negativity doesn't bother him. "In elementary school, kids would always pull food away from me at lunch time saying mean hurtful things like… 'Let go of my sandwich!".
And it's a good thing Rob knows how to turn everything positive, because he was "Born to be Fired." Working as a computer programmer for IBM, the Detroit born comic sent out an ALL- company e-mail saying "If you aren't happy here, quit your job and follow your dream." IBM gave him his walking papers, but getting fired led to a successful career as a standup comedian. And now it's led to a network television show, earning him a role on the CBS Summer hit "Fire Me Please."
Once described to as "a Bald Chris Farley with a smack of Jack Black," Rob responded "I don't mind being bald, look at all the money I save… by not going on dates."
A sketch comedy player on the Fox Sports Net Show, "The Best Damn Sports Show Period" and "Last Call With Carson Daly" Little uses his training at the World Famous Second City to create comedy that is inventive, funny and spontaneous.
He headlines clubs and colleges all over the country, has appeared in National television commercials and on such shows as Strictly Sex with Dr. Drew, Comedy Central's Distraction, Fox News and SiTV's Latino Laugh Festival to name a few. His recently released comedy CD is Born 20 Inches Long A shot in the arm to any comedy line-up, entertainment bookers call him "The Future of comedy" with "More contagious energy than the Energizer Bunny."
Little brings excitement whereever he goes … and audiences just can't stop laughing. It's no wonder Rob was selected Michigan's BEST Up and Coming Comedian by the Detroit Free Press, has been a finalist in both the Seattle and San Francisco International Comedy Competitions, featured at The Chicago Comedy Festival and will soon appear at The Boston Comedy and Movie Festival. Don't let the "Little" name fool you.
Little is BIG! But that has never slowed him down. "Yeah, I'm big, and all my relatives are too. Heck, we just got our family portrait done by aerial photography. And there are only three of us."
