Rob Haze
In a short amount of time Rob Haze has become a rising star in the Atlanta comedy scene. The Atlanta native starting comedy as a junior at the University of Georgia there it was apparent that Rob was destined to be a star. From the first time he touched the microphone people knew they were seeing something special. He went on to win the 2010 Athens Last Comic Standing contest. With a sense of humor that is full of clever wordplay and full of references to popular culture, there is no wonder why Rob is already a favorite at The Punchline, Laughing Skull Lounge, and Uptown Comedy Corner. There is no racial or age limits to Rob’s comedy as he likes to bring people together when he is on stage rather than tear them apart. Rob has opened for countless stars in stand up comedy including Lil’ Duval, Louis Katz, Vanessa Fraction and his friend and Mentor Ronnie Jordan. Rob is also a writer and star on the sketch comedy show Cabbage Town on Dish Network.
