About Robert Klein

Robert Klein (born February 8, 1942) is an American stand-up comedian, singer and actor. Klein was born in The Bronx, the son of Frieda (nee Moskowitz) and Benjamin Klein, and was raised in a 'prototypical 1950s Bronx Jewish' environment. After graduating from DeWitt Clinton High School, Klein had planned to study medicine; however, he changed his mind during his studies in university. After graduating from Alfred University, he studied at Yale Drama School when he got wind of an opportunity to audition for The Second City. In a piece he wrote for the improvisational troupe's book, Klein recalled sitting in a room full of other hopefuls, including Fred Willard.
