At the age of 18, Robert's boss at the local supermarket gave him some of the best advice he ever received, "You're fired." So, Hawkins decided that serving Uncle Sam would help him focus on his future. Though odds were against him lasting one day in the military, who would have guessed he would serve three years as an expert combat medic in Fort Hood, Texas. He got out in 1988 with an honorable discharge and an Army Commendation Medal.
With encouragement from his friends and more advice from his civilian bosses, Robert Hawkins decided to try stand-up in 1990. He hopped the stage at the Dallas Improv and never looked back.
In 1993 he won the California State University Comedy Competition. In 1994 he was a finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, prompting a move to the bay area where he worked as a sketch writer for the Johnny Steele Morning Radio Show.
In 1996 a clever and unique set at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal garnered a development deal with the FOX network. "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" followed, along with appearances on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," Showtime, A&E and "The Bob and Tom Radio Show."
In 1999 Robert Hawkins moved to Los Angeles to work as a story editor for the FOX sitcom, "Titus." His creativity prompted the show's producers to cast him in a recurring guest role as the lowlife brother-in-outlaw, Michael.
In 2001 Robert was voted one of the Top 25 Comics by comedy club owners for the American Comedy Awards. He continues to tour and has recorded two CD's "Smackin Kittens" and "Serious for Sorghum Records." In December, 2002, he taped "Comedy Central Presents Robert Hawkins" which began airing July 4, 2003.
