Felipe Esparza is a comedian and actor, best known for his raw, real-life comedy that audiences everywhere can relate to.

Gentrification starts to happen and ‘bad’ neighborhoods start to become ‘good’. But I like to show the other side of it… the guy who hasn’t changed and probably never will. I have a joke that kind of shows that… “I know I’m not a tough guy, but I’m pretty sure I could beat up everyone who shops at Trader Joe’s. But at Food 4 Less, I shut the hell up.”

Schneider recently inked a deal with TRiCon Films and Television for the international distribution of his new television comedy series, “Real Rob.” The self-financed, eight-episode, independently produced comedy series was directed, co-written and stars Schneider with his real life wife, Mexican television producer Patricia Azarcoya. “Real Rob” comes two years after “Rob,” the CBS sitcom that Schneider also wrote, produced, and starred in. CBS’s “Rob” premiered to an audience of 13.5 million viewers and averaged 11 million viewers over the run of its 8 episodes. When CBS chose not to pick up the show, Schneider said, “Eleven million viewers is not enough for them, it’s enough for me. I’ll do it myself.” Schneider is the first actor to have written, produced, starred, directed and self-financed an entire season of a television show. The second season of “Real Rob” will begin production in summer 2015.
Schneider is currently filming The Ridiculous Six with Adam Sandler. The Ridiculous Six will be the first feature film distributed by Netflix. This film marks the eighteenth collaboration between the 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.

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.
In 2009, after a nearly twenty-year hiatus, 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.
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.
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.

American comic Orny Adams first rose to international prominence after co-starring in Jerry Seinfeld’s documentary “Comedian.” He has made several appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2010, Orny followed up his critically acclaimed debut comedy DVD/CD “Path Of Most Resistance,” with a powerful and poignant one hour special “Orny Adams Takes The Third” which aired on Comedy Central. Currently, Orny can be seen playing the iconic role “Coach Finstock” on the hit MTV show “Teen Wolf,” a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind’s Jeff Davis. Jeff handpicked Orny for the role after seeing him at the Hollywood Improv.
Early in his career Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the “go to” guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on Letterman. In 2010, Orny was thrilled to return to the festival in Montreal working alongside one of his favorite comedians Steve Martin on a taped televised stand up show Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a “Stand-out act” by The Hollywood Reporter.
Other notable projects include a talk show pilot developed for Orny by CBS Television Distribution/Kingworld along side Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst Films. Orny shot another pilot for his own late night talk show for TBS and taped his own series, “Modern Chaos with Orny Adams” for The Discovery Channel. He hosted his own show on Discovery’s Travel Channel, has appeared on Jiminy Glick, Tough Crowd on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Last Call With Carson Daly, and did a regular segment on Hollywood and politics on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. You may also recognize him from other notable television appearances and many of his national commercials, including Coca-Cola. Orny made his first TV appearance in 1996 on Friday Night Videos.
When not performing stand-up, Orny spends his days writing, penning scripts, and developing television shows. A few years back, he struck a deal with Endimol for “The Pitch,” a reality show he conceived.
But none of this matters until you see Orny live where he is at his best, deconstructing the chaos of the modern world and getting worked up about things that most people just accept. His tour has reached clubs, theatres, even the Staples Center in LA, colleges, corporate events, and festivals as far away as Ireland, Australia, and South Africa. Orny’s comedy style is unique, yet universally appealing. Orny is quick on his feet to deliver a powerful, clever, sophisticated, and fast paced routine that attacks topics from an angle that many people have never considered.

What some people have said: “I’m a big Orny Adams fan.”
— Jerry Seinfeld
“I thought this CD was hilarious. Then Orny told me it was a DVD. Well, to see his facial expressions made it even funnier. Either way, he kicks ass.”
— Garry Shandling
“You judge a comedian by the laughs he gets and the laughs on this CD are huge…shattering. Orny reminds me of Joe Frazier working the ribcage.”
— Dennis Miller
“There’s a growing group of people who have known that Orny is a great comic thinker and performer. We search out his stuff on the internet, we go to his shows, we send emails around with things he’s said. It’s like we discovered Bob Dylan early and everyone else is just about to.”
