Robert Schimmel – Life Since Then

packshot-grootVoted one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-up comedians of all-time, Robert Schimmel set record ratings for his SHOWTIME and HBO specials and was about to star in his own prime-time television series. Then he hit a few bumps…

He had a heart attack, got cancer, had his television series cancelled before it began, met his soulmate, lost his wife when she found out about the soulmate, got divorced, lost a house, got remarried…though not necessarily in that order.

A lot has happened to Schimmel since 2000. He survived it all, and the result is a hysterical comedy event that marks his triumphant stand-up return. The comedian and best selling author of: Cancer on $5 a Day…How Humor Got Me Through the Toughest Journey of My Life – has plenty to say on everything from raising a 17 year old daughter, bargaining with the Almighty, and how not to make friends with a dolphin.

Recorded in 2008.
