Craig Robinson

Star and Executive Producer, Killing It

Universal Studio Group

Beginning as a stand-up comedian, Craig Robinson first made his mark on the comedy circuit at the 1998 Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival. Now headlining venues and festivals across the country, he does both solo acts, as well as full-band sets with his band, “The Nasty Delicious.” Before deciding to pursue his comedy career full-time, Robinson was a K-8 teacher in the Chicago Public School System. He earned his undergraduate degree from Illinois State University and his Masters of Education from St. Xavier University. It was while Robinson was studying education in Chicago that he also discovered his love of acting and comedy when he joined the famed Second City Theatre. He is best known for his portrayal of “Daryl Philban” in “The Office,” and has starred in films, including “Knocked Up,” “This is the End,” “Hot Tub Time Machine,” “Hot Tub Time Machine 2,” “Morris from America,” “Tragedy Girls,” “Dolemite is my Name!,” “Timmy Failure” “Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon,” "Songbird," and “The Bad Guys.” He also starred in his very own sitcom, “Mr. Robinson,” as well as “Ghosted” and hosted FOX's "The Masked Dancer." Craig re-teamed with Brooklyn Nine-Nine exec producers Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici for Peacock's hit scripted comedy show "Killing It,” currently filming season 2.
