Craig Robinson, born and raised in Chicago, is an American actor, stand-up comedian, and singer. Arguably best known for his role as acerbic Dunder-Mifflin employee Darryl Philbin on NBC’s Emmy-winning “The Office,” he has also starred in films such as KNOCKED UP, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, the HOT TUB TIME MACHINE series, and THIS IS THE END.
This summer, he will star in the NBC sitcom “Mr. Robinson,” which is loosely based on Robinson’s life pre-Hollywood success when he was a K-8 music teacher in Chicago while performing with his band at night. That band is real, and you can catch Craig Robinson and The Nasty Delicious at comedy and music shows nationwide.
Robinson currently resides in Los Angeles.
