“[Comedy Studies] was a crash course in what the industry is going to be like.”

Rob Colletti '11

Theatre

From the Comedy Studies program to the Broadway stage, Rob Colletti just wants to make people laugh.

A school field trip to the Steppenwolf Theatre for Young Adults inspired Rob Colletti to pursue acting. While studying under Columbia College Chicago’s Comedy Studies program, Rob began performing at esteemed Chicago comedy venue The Second City. After graduating, Rob was cast as a lead understudy in the original Chicago production of The Book of Mormon: The Musical, later making his Broadway debut in 2014. “[Comedy Studies] was a crash course in what the industry is going to be like,” Rob says. After the national Broadway tour of Book of Mormon, Rob wanted to keep making people laugh. In 2016, he was an actor and executive producer for WTF: World Thumbwrestling Federation, a mockumentary film portraying the professional thumb wrestling world.
