Even when he’s not doing anything, Craig Robinson always seems like he’s about to do something awesome, and I’m not just saying that because he nodded at me at a comedy club once. He always has that smirk on his face like he just got away with something. His This is the End director/writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast this week, and almost before the interview even started they were already telling Craig Robinson stories. Specifically, one about Craig Robinson’s This is the End premiere date and her stripper pole that she brought and assembled herself. My kinda lady.
ROGEN: We’re a little hungover from the party last night.
MARON: How was that party?
ROGEN: It was fun! Craig Robinson brought a lady who assembled her own stripper pole in one of the hotel rooms at the hotel we were at. And I’ve never seen that before. I’ve seen a lot of crazy shit at parties, I’ve never seen a woman unpack a case that looked like an oboe case or something. And literally took out a stripper pole, like a giant pool cue, and assembled it. It was unbelievable.
GOLDBERG: She had physical prowess beyond what any woman should.
ROGEN: And Craig just said “…I brought her.”
MARON: And did he accompany her, musically?
ROGEN: No, but he went on the pole against her.
GOLDBERG: I thought he was going to break it.
MARON: Wait, does this pole lock in?
ROGEN: Yeah, it locked in. It was crazy.
Yep, Craig Robinson sounds like a a guy you’d want to invite to a party. Coincidentally, I always carry an oboe case around to parties too, only mine contains a foam cowboy hat, a gold championship wrestling belt, and three cats. And it has dry ice inside so it smokes when I open it. Adds a real epic flair to my hip thrusts.
