After studying Maths at Cambridge, he realised that banking wasn’t the ideal career for him and went on to train as an actor at LAMDA drama school.

But during his time at Cambridge, Rob was inspired to come up with a character who “loves the sound of his own voice but doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about, because I don’t really know what I am talking about.” 

Rob is the winner of the 2011 Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Award. He also scooped an award at the Musical Comedy Awards the following year.
