What Happened to Once Famous Comedy Movie Star Rob Schneider?


Comedian Rob Schneider was a well-known comedian in the late 1990s and early 2000s and is remembered mainly for his comedy hits “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” “The Animal” and “The Hot Chick,” but we rarely see him on the big screen today.


He began his career in the famous “Saturday Night Live” in 1988 and stayed there until 1994. It was during his work on the show that he made a lifelong friend, another famous Hollywood guy, Adam Sandler, with whom he later filmed many comedies. His first major role was the one in the hit comedy “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” and then he began to make box office hits.

On the other hand, he earned a Razzie nomination for the Worst Actor of the Decade for the movie “The Animal,” which is his best-reviewed movie on the Rotten Tomatoes.


This famous stand-up comedian and actor who has profiled himself for roles in wacky and hilarious comedies, often not of high quality, but great charm, is nowadays a favorite face, which when appears evokes nostalgia. Yet many wonder where is Rob today?

Unfortunately, he has disappeared slightly from the public eye, and although he still makes films, you will hardly be able to see him on the big screen of a movie theater. He records low budget and less known titles, so it can be rightly said that his movie era has ended.


Today, he can be seen on small screens in his Netflix sitcom “Real Rob”. The show follows his everyday life, including his wife and daughter.

Schneider became the father of the girl Elle King in 1989, whom he got from a relationship with the model London King. His daughter followed her father’s steps and became an actress, but in the first place, she is a singer and a songwriter.

Rob Schneider got married for the first time in 2011 to Mexican actress and television producer Patricia Azarcoya Arce. The couple has 7-year-old daughter Miranda.
