Rob Schneider Bio: Early Life, Parents, and Education
The youngest of five children born to Pilar and Marvin Schneider, Rob grew up in Pacifica, a San Francisco suburb, with his siblings who include John Schneider, now a film, and television producer. Rob went to Terra Nova High School, from which he matriculated in 1982, then enrolled at San Francisco State University.
Rob launched his career during high school days; his older brother, at the time a talent agent and manager, secured him a gig as an opening act to the rock band Head On. He would slowly build up a name for himself, starting to perform in Bay Area nightclubs including The Other Café, and Holy City Zoo. As Rob improved he became a regular on local radio programs, and got a chance in 1987 to perform at the HBO’s 13th Annual Young Comedians special, after serving as the opening act to Dennis Miller, who then invited him to perform at the event, hosted by Miller himself.
Saturday Night Live Period and Rise to Fame
Rob joined “SNL” soon after this breakthrough performance; he was hired as a writer firstly, but after two years started appearing in sketches and then became a full-time member of the cast. He remained a part of “SNL” until 1994, during which time he created a number of recurring characters, and became known for his impersonations of various celebrities. His most memorable recurring character was The Richmeister, an office worker who likes to give nicknames to his colleagues and annoy them. During his time in “SNL”, Rob developed a close friendship with Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Chris Rock and David Spade, and the quintet became known as The Bad Boys of SNL.
Rob started the new millennium with the lead role in the sci-fi comedy film “The Animal”, but which received largely negative critiques, marking the beginning of Rob’s decline in popularity as an actor. He continued with mediocre films, such as the comedy film “The Hot Chick” (2002), but then in 2004 co-starred with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in the film “50 First Dates”, which won several awards. In 2005, the sequel to “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo” was released, entitled “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo”, but the sequel became a collateral damage to Rob’s career, as it wasn’t successful, and Rob received a Razzie Award for the Worst Actor. He tried to revitalize his career with the lead role in the comedy film “Big Stan” in 2007, and a supporting role in the comedy “You Don’t Mess with Zohan”, starring Adam Sandler, but without any major success.
A career in Recent Years
In the 2010s, Rob has become more focused on a career as a voice actor, and has lent his voice to such characters as Zed in the animated film “Noah” (2012), then Johnny in the animated film “Outback”, and in the same year also gave voice to Patrick Panda and Jim Ginseng from “The Adventures of Panda Warrior”. Rob was also the voice of Shelby in the film of the same name, and Norm in the animated film “Norm of the North” in 2016. From 2015 to 2017, Rob was the subject of the reality TV series “Real Rob”, alongside his wife, Patricia Maya Schneider.

Fight Against Children Vaccination
Rob has many times stated his criticism on childhood vaccination, making him one of those people who believe that vaccinations causes autism, despite proven scientific researches. He has supported two California laws on this topic, but his efforts weren’t successful, and children vaccinations are still obligatory in the state.
Back in 1996, Rob established the Rob Schneider Music Foundation, which has since been focused on providing music equipment and salaries for teachers in Pacifica’s elementary school. Before the Rob Schneider Music Foundation was established, the schools in Pacifica’s area didn’t have music education.
