The Office’s Craig Robinson Might Be Secretly Working On A Netflix Comedy Special

Since The Office ended in 2013, musician, comedian and actor Craig Robinson has been just as busy as the rest of the NBC series’ cast. He’s starred in films like Dolittle, Dolemite Is My Name, and Sausage Party, as well as TV shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Killing It and his now-defunct sitcom Mr. Robinson. Still, with all of this work on his plate, he manages to do frequent stand-up sets around Hollywood and its surrounding cities. Case in point, he has six nights booked for this week alone. So in this age of streaming specials and what is perhaps the emergence of more new stand-up than ever before, why hasn’t he released a special himself? As a fan of the man’s comedy for over a decade, I had to get to the bottom of it.

We spoke recently on behalf of his newest film The Bad Guys, and found ourselves discussing the current state of comedy in the industry. When I asked if Craig Robinson was developing a set with a full-length Netflix special in mind, or if there was any discussion of such a thing internally, he told me this:

There’s always talk of that. And, you know, I can’t really, uh, speak on that move at this juncture (laughs).
