Robinson’s career continues to evolve, which is of no surprise given that her talents prove to be boundless. The 36-year-old comedian, writer, and actress moved from Cleveland, Ohio to New York so that she could attend the Pratt Institute and study screenwriting. Soon after, Robinson found work at a production company, and it wasn’t until she was convinced to attend a stand-up class by a friend that Robinson discovered comedy was the path for her. Robinson stated, “it’s like, ‘Girl, what else should I be doing but comedy?’ But, at the time, I just didn’t think of it that way.” Now, with 10 years of stand-up under her belt, Robinson is ready to dominate the entertainment industry.

She will be interviewing artists and providing audiences with more of her gifted banter. Robinson is an unstoppable and artistic force with undeniable wit, charm, and limitless ambition.
Robinson’s gift for storytelling ebbs and flows between her various projects that are consistently met with praise and the recognition she rightfully deserves. When asked about her approach to writing, “Writing is one of the great forms of expression, to understand and question the world, to reflect on the human condition, or simply to connect with someone. It can do many things, and for a lot of people, writing— whether it’s a journal or the next “Great American Novel”— is an activity that can bring peace and be meditative.”
A Charming and Mighty Presence
There’s a reason Phoebe Robinson seems familiar; she has graciously graced our screens with multiple projects that feature her comedic influence and rising stardom. She co-starred in Netflix’s hit series ‘Ibiza: Love Drunk,’ was a contestant on ‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race,’ and starred in 7 episodes of the cult-fav, ‘Search Party.’ Not to mention. the HBO series, ‘2 Dope Queens,’ which she co-created alongside Jessica Williams, was a major success within its first season that the network ordered a second season to audiences’ delight.
For the past decade, Robinson has tapped into almost every medium and is expertly sharing her advice and perspective through multiple platforms. She has a podcast, ‘Sooo Many White Guys,’ that speaks to white men commanding the comedy world which notoriously excluded minorities and yes, women. Robinson states, “I remember I submitted a writing packet, like, three times at ‘SNL,’ Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Fallon. Getting that level of rejection, I was like, ‘Why do I keep waiting for this when I could just do my own thing?’ Whether it’s something like ‘2 Dope Queens’ or ‘Everything’s Trash but It’s Okay,’ I really just bet on myself because, essentially, it’s not like, ‘You know what we’re in the mood for? Black women.’”
