SNL Alum Rob Schneider To Perform At The Newton Theatre

SNL Alum Rob Schneider To Perform At The Newton Theatre(NEWTON, NJ) -- Emmy-nominated actor/comedian Rob Schneider will bring his stand-up routine to The Newton Theatre on Friday, October 6, 2017 at 8:00pm. Schneider is known the world over for his Saturday Night Live sketches and his successful career in feature films, among them as star of the smash comedy Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. Currently you can see him starring in his new Netflix hit series Real Rob.

Schneider began writing jokes as a teenager, appearing at local comedy clubs, such as the Holy City Zoo made famous by Robin Williams. Schneider made his major network television debut in 1987 performing stand-up on The David Letterman Show. In 1989 Lorne Michaels saw Schneider’s appearance on HBO’s 13th Annual Young Comedians Special and hired him as a writer on Saturday Night Live. Schneider quickly became a regular. During his four seasons at SNL, Schneider created characters that people around the country imitated and adored, including the “copy machine guy,” the “orgasm guy,” and the “put your weed in there guy.” He performed memorable sketches with Charlton Heston, John Malkovich, Macaulay Culkin, Christopher Walken, Jeff Goldblum, Joe Pesci and others. As part of the SNL writing staff, Schneider was nominated for three Emmys and won a Peabody Award. 

In 2009, after a nearly twenty-year hiatus, Rob Schneider made his return to stand-up comedy. He has released two albums since then, Registered Offender and Soy Sauce and the Holocaust, and has received rave reviews for his international comedy tours.

In 2015 Schneider starred in The Ridiculous Six with Adam Sandler. The Ridiculous Six was the first feature film distributed by Netflix. This film marks the eighteenth collaboration between Sandler and Schneider. Their longtime friendship has spanned some twenty-five years and produced comedic hits such as Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, 50 First Dates, Big Daddy and The Waterboy. Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, produced several films written by and starring Schneider, including Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, which was the second highest grossing DVD in the US in 2000, The Hot Chick and The Animal. Schneider has appeared in 50 films. He has co-starred with Sylvester Stallone, Rachael McAdams, Steve Buscemi, David Carradine, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kelsey Grammer, David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock and M. Emmet Walsh, among many others. Schneider’s films have grossed over $2.6 billion in North America alone.

Rob Schneider currently stars in his own Netflix series entitled Real Rob, which is loosely based on his life. The series marks the first time any actor has ever written, produced, starred in, directed and (most importantly) financed an entire season of a television show.

Schneider, born and raised in Northern California, has been a lifelong San Francisco Giants baseball fan. In each of their three World Series Championship runs, Rob was asked to come out onto the field and cheer the team and its fans to victory. 

 Tickets range from $39 to $54 and may be purchased by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contacting the Box Office at 973-383-3700.

The historic Newton Theatre, located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, NJ, was founded in 1924. Revitalized and fully renovated, Sussex County’s premier entertainment venue reopened in 2011 as a 605 seat capacity live performing arts center.
