I am stand up comedian out of Hartford, CT. I've been performing for 8 years in various locations such as New York City, CT, Rhode Island, and western Massachusetts. My style is laid back but packed with energy and silliness to keep the crowd going!
Rob was amazing! He came and entertained two different groups of 40 second and third graders in our school. All of the children (and adults) were completely engaged! He also was incredibly encouraging, reminding students that they should follow their dreams. I highly recommend him to any group!
Response from Rob Santos:
They were amazing! I’m so blessed to have been in that situation. They surprised me by being so willing to come up and tell jokes! They are amazing, amazing children. They made my heart melt. Thank you for letting me apart of something so special! The fortnite jokes were amazing!
We had tea at Dobra in Northampton MA so that I could interview Rob for a Steve Martin Masterclass.com comedy-writing assignment. Anyway, he and I had the most beautiful time.
While Santos could well only have talked about his life, he also 1) did great jokes and 2) helped me learn how to write and even encouraged a standup attempt! Where perhaps Masterclass wouldn't.
He showed me about how he managed his calendar and journal notebooks(putting me right in my element as I love stationery), was very open about his life and just a Master font of advice!
I could barely eat it was so exciting. And such a kind man. Very counterintuitively funny and iconoclastic. A busy person. Was leaving to do a podcast later that night!
Rob Santos is extremely nimble at Improv and Versatile, so this is a big recommend. He is making all kinds of different people laugh all over the place: Tri-State plus Rhode Island and Mass. Thanks!

What to Expect
Expect to get an urban outlook on my life and the way I see the world. I can press the audience a bit to let them know that I am just like them. We are all people so why don't we celebrate our differences together?
I have been doing stand up comedy for eight years. I got my start in New York City and I have been performing all across the metropolitan area and New England. Now based out of Hartford, CT I have been trying my hand in clubs, festivals, and private venues perfecting my craft. I am a bi-racial father of one, so I bring a unique perspective on the world around with my laid back, vibrant, cerebral style that gets everyone involved.
Additional Booking Notes
I am also versed in hosting events. Such as galas, fashion shows, any kind of show, I can host it.
