About Rubbish In, Robish Out!

Rubbish In, Robish Out! began long ago as a collaboration between LA actor and comic Johnny Robish and Austria’s Archduke Franz Ferdinand.  With the untimely assassination of the Archduke in 1914 at the hands of anarchist Gavrilo Princip at Sarajevo, the website has become the sole responsibility of Johnny Robish himself. Rubbish In, Robish Out! was designed to be a place where people could come and waste hours and hours of their precious time reading worthless perspectives on pertinent topics, all the while gaining very little insight into the what they had actually read.  At Rubbish In, Robish Out!, we feel we have accomplished this task.  

Although he has many other interests, Johnny is a committed writer who has often said that “the only time I’m really happy is when I’m sitting in front of a typewriter.  Unfortunately, there are no typewriters anymore – so I’m just miserable all the time.”  While living in Hawaii in the mid-2000’s, Johnny wrote a weekly humor column entitled “Kauai Komedy” for Kauai’s main newspaperThe Garden Island” before returning to California and being named “Blogger of the Year” by AARP in 2012.  Johnny adds that “I grew up in Canton, Ohio, a place that’s so polluted, that you couldn’t even drink the water.  Therefore, it was always my dream to escape that environment and move instead to a place where you couldn’t breath the air – which explains why I ended up in here in LA. 

Once a favorite at comedy clubs all over the western United States, Johnny rarely does stand-up any longer because “I always felt that every time I’d get on stage, people were laughing at me.”  Johnny’s humor has been published in such diverse venues as the LA Times “Laugh Lines”, medical journals, trade publications, dozens of company newsletters and humor magazines.  


You may also find Johnny at numerous internet locations including ten local Patch online community newspapers MediumJokeBlogger.ComDailyComedy.Com, TumblrThe FunnyFirm.ComHow Sick Is That? Our Salon.Com, WriteHere and the late Peter Bergman’s Radio Free OZ which also featured TV’s John Goodman, Edie McClurg and Paul Krassner.  Johnny has also written for road comics including Taylor Negron, Mel Kohl, Marti Schauer and Jere Evans.

Also a working actor, people frequently ask Johnny “what made you decide to get into acting?”  The answer is quite simple, Johnny has always felt we didn’t have nearly enough movie stars relative to the general population, so Johnny made the decision to volunteer himself to help fill in the gap.  Talk about a civic-minded individual!

    Grew up in Lompoc from 69-84 listening to KLOM. Do you have any airchecks of your show?

      Hey Brad! I was there probably right around 1980 or 81. I used to have some air checks, but after having moved to Kauai and then Maui and back to Cali, they are all long lost along with most of my old stand up videos. How did you know I worked in Lompoc? Did I have that on a bio? Johnny
