ROBERT DRIEMEYER

has been making audiences laugh since his first time on stage which was in a talent contest at a bar in Ft. Lauderdale. He won first prize and $50…to date, still one of his highest paying gigs. Prior to comedy Robert was a chorus boy, singing and dancing in over 30 musicals; but gaining weight and losing hair put the nail in that coffin. He has also appeared in such straight-to-video features as UFO Fever and < i="" style="font-family: "Century Gothic"; font-size: small;">and sincerely hopes they are lost for good in the cut-out bin.

Smart, sharp, sarcastic and always funny, Robert tackles an unexpectedly diverse range of topics including current events, growing up, temp jobs and gay toys. On occasion he can even be persuaded to do his best impersonation...a Boca Raton 911 operator.

Robert performs regularly throughout New York City where he’s a particular favorite among news junkies…

“Rush Limbaugh was arrested twice for illegal drugs; Viagra and OxyContin. What idiot takes an erectile enhancer and painkillers?”

...and gay audiences

“As far as I’m concerned, homosexuality is genetic. At least I hope so, that’s the only excuse we have for my Uncle Janet.”

...and everybody in between.

“I went to my class reunion and it just like we were back in high school again…everybody drunk and showing pictures of their kids.

Robert is currently developing a solo show entitled Call Me Crazy, But… It’s based on his popular blog here on ComedySoapbox!
