Rob’s reach spreads beyond the US market, in the UK he sold out the Soho Theatre in 7 minutes, via one “tweet” making him the fastest selling US performer in the venue’s history.
At the end of 2011, he filmed a pilot for Comedy Central entitled @RobDelaney. His television credits include Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, FUEL TV’s The Daily Habit, and the pilot Movie Nook for TBS.
