If anyone had a path leading them to stand up comedy; its Robyn. After shedding the leg braces, learning how to somewhat read, and losing the weight, Robyn earned her BFA in acting at the University of Connecticut.
Wearing leg braces like Forrest Gump as a child, illiterate to the age of 16 and at one point weighing 215lbs, Robyn was a walking sit-com. After graduating, she realized that with her weight, dating, family and life journey she had some really funny stories to share; so she attempted stand up comedy. Robyn became a regular in the NY comedy club scene and highly sought after in the fundraiser scene, performing frequently for all types of charities.
