Rob Schneider: The Comedic Genius
Let’s be real, we all grew up laughing our butts off to the comedic stylings of Rob Schneider. Just hearing the titles of his movies like Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, The Hot Chick, The Animal, and The Benchwarmers will have you reminiscing about your favorite scenes. But did you know that Schneider got his start on Saturday Night Live or SNL? That’s right, even in high school he was honing his craft doing stand-up comedy. He eventually became a regular at Bay Area comedy bars and from there, he blossomed into the comedic talent we know and love today.
And let’s not forget about his recurring roles on SNL, like The Sensitive Naked Man who loves to give unsolicited advice, and The Richmeister who has a knack for giving people hilarious nicknames. Schneider’s style of comedy is all about poking fun at stereotypes and making them even more ridiculous with his spot-on character impressions.
Even to this day, Rob Schneider is still making us laugh on SNL and in his movies. He truly is a master comedian and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. So, let’s raise a glass to Rob Schneider, the comedic genius!
Why isn’t Rob Scheider popular anymore?
In November of 2016, it was noted by Looper.com that Schneider’s career had hit an all-time low. His fame hit national levels when Schneider joined the cast of SNL as part of the “Bad Boys of SNL” group including Chris Farley (now deceased), Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, and David Spade. Reasons given by Looper for this included his late-90s/early-2000s notoriety being built from a series of short cameos in other people’s films, Schneider’s own directorial features often debuted on DVD before being abandoned altogether due to critical and commercial failure, his over-reliance on ethnic stereotypes for humor and whitewashing roles in the 2010s losing him a lot of credibility with audiences, amongst other issues. In 2014 State Farm Insurance dropped Schneider as a spokesperson thanks to his anti-vaccination views. Mostly he has subsisted on voice-over work since 2011.

Why wasn’t Rob Schneider in Grown Ups 2?
Rob Schneider has acted and worked with many of the big names in the comedy scene in Hollywood. Some of them he has worked with in the first installment of the comedy film Grown Ups, and they included Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James, and Salma Hayek, to name a few. Co-produced by Adam Sandler, it was almost a no-brainer that Rob Schneider would be in the second installment but at the time of the production, Rob Schneider was busy preparing for the birth of his second daughter who was born in 2012. However, with the terrible reception that the sequel received, Rob is probably pleased that he missed out on that one!
