Hey there, I'm Robbie Pickard.

I live in Encinitas, CA, and have been a professional writer for over a decade. Before writing humor books and becoming a full-time copywriter, I spent eight years touring the country as a stand-up comedian. It was an awesome, surreal, but very unsustainable lifestyle, so I put down the microphone in exchange for writing from the comfort of my own home and going to the beach with my wife in our 1963 vintage camper trailer much more often.

When I’m not writing, I’m usually playing soccer, surfing, or telling dumb jokes to my wife’s pregnant belly (neither of them laugh). Read more...

People typically come to my site for two reasons. Which one are you?

Here's what one comedy colleague said about me:

“At first, I was so pissed off there was another ‘Robby’ in stand-up comedy. I hated him for it. But, he turned out to be incredibly funny and devastatingly likable, so I had to accept it.” 
— - ROBBY SLOWIK (Comedian, Writer for Jon Stewart's HBO Project)
