ACTRESS. WRITER. PODCASTER
Robin Hopkins is an actress, a writer and a producer residing in New York City. She began her career as a stand-up comic performing regularly at such venues as Caroline’s, Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club and Stand-Up New York before transitioning into acting. Her acting credits include Boardwalk Empire, Louie and Hindsight and some really great “big hands acting” on Celebrity Ghost Stories and Monsters Inside Me. An original film that she acted in called Mi America recently aired on HBO and is currently being considered for a series.
In the writing world, she is a frequent contributor to both HuffPo and Medium. Some of her television writing credits include three seasons on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, the O Music Awards, VH1’s Divas and MTV’s Teen Mom Reunion Special, and her pilot, Age Against the Machine has just advanced to the second round of the Sundance Episodic Lab.
In addition to performing and writing for TV, Robin is also an accomplished playwright. Her one-woman show In Search of Tulla Berman debuted to sold-out crowds in San Francisco and enjoyed subsequent runs in Winnipeg, Canada, the Pelican Theatre in New York City, and ended with a month-long run at the Ars Nova Theatre.
A workshop of Robin’s play Love, Punky landed her a $5000 grant from MTV for continued work on the project. Love, Punky went on to have a reading at Ars Nova, and a run at the Midtown International Theatre Festival, which garnered rave reviews from Gothamist and NYTheatre.com.
Currently, Robin is merging all of her creative worlds as she acts, writes and produces the comedic digital short series Stupid Michelle & Dumb Robin that can be found on YouTube.
