George Mason University’s Student Involvement presents a hilarious night of stand-up featuring comedian Craig Robinson on the Mason Pond Lawn! Robinson is best known for his portrayal of Daryl Philban in NBC’s The Office but has also starred in such movies as Knocked Up, This is the End, Hot Tub Time Machine, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Morris from America, Tragedy Girls, Dolemite is my name! with Eddie Murphy, Timmy Failure, and Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon with Kate Hudson. Robinson also starred in his very own sitcom, Mr. Robinson on NBC, as well as Ghosted on FOX. 

Robinson first made his mark in 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 studying education in Chicago that he also discovered his love of acting and comedy when he joined the famed improve company The Second City. 

Tickets: $15 for back lawn and $25 for front lawn.
