Rob was a born comedian, writing his first joke at the age of four. As the kind of person that was always looking to make people laugh, he would study comedians such as Richard Pryor and George Carlin. He learned early that if you could make people laugh you were halfway there... even if he didn't know where he was going.
For over 20 years, Rob has been bringing his comedy to stages all over the country. His style is direct and to the point. His act is relatively clean but "slightly" naughty and somewhat cerebral but not over your head. He's a comic everyone can relate to.
He has worked with famed comedians Lewis Black, Eddie Griffin, and Patton Oswalt, as well as five cast members from Saturday Night Live. And the locations Reibold has worked at over the last 20+ years are too many to name; however, a few notable places include Las Vegas' 'Comedy Stop at the Trop', Funny Bone Comedy Clubs and The Improvs from coast-to-coast.
CJ Burney is becoming one the hottest up-and-coming comedians in stand up today. CJ was born and raised in Baltimore, MD -- also where he started his comedy career in April of 2007. Ever since first taking the stage, CJ has become one of the "must-see" comedians in the Baltimore area, as well as a producer of many shows.
Most recently CJ opened for Whoopi Goldberg at The Lyric Opera House after winning ABC's The View's "So You Think You're Funny?" contest.
"Comedy is my life and I love to take people away from their problems for a couple of hours. Just to make them feel better for one minute and to let them know that, you have to laugh to get through the pain".
Some of CJ's influences include Richard Pryor, Red Foxx, Robin Harris and Martin Lawrence.
