Three years into performing, Rob was a top ten finalist on the first season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”.  Cantrell has just released a new comedy-music album titled "Dreams Never Die" (2014). This Hip-Hop heavy comedy music album has received some stellar reviews, ‘Brooklyn Based Arts Blog’ calls the album “Ridiculous and Hilarious.”, and ‘Rooftop Comedy’ wrote, “The high quality production is impressive but you’ll be too busy having fun to notice.”. Rob has been performing the songs live on stage at select shows. When not on the road, Cantrell is constantly working on multiple media projects and honing new material in New York.

Before hearing some of Cynic Cave’s standup comedy, you may have thought it was impossible to discuss gentrification, racism, and misogyny AND laugh at the same time.
