More Information


A former writer and actor on the hit sitcom Titus, former San Francisco resident Robert Hawkins was a finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition and winner of the California State University Comedy Competition. In 1996, he wowed audiences and industry figures in Montreal at the Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival, which led to Robert being awarded a Fox development deal. In 2001, he was voted one of the 25 top comics in the country in a poll of comedy club owners nominating candidates for the American Comedy Awards.

And, perhaps needless to say, he’s starred in his own Comedy Central half-hour special, appeared on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” and a slew of other TV shows. Still, when all is said and done about his work — cable TV, network TV, writing, acting, etc. — Robert Hawkins’ first love is performing comedy in a club in front of a live audience, and obviously he’s pretty damn good at it. Do you want to miss that? Didn’t think so.
