The late night TV writer talks to Write On about breaking in and his early inspirations: "I was kind of the weird kid who at, like, 11 was watching David Letterman… [the realization] came to me in my very early teens like, 'Oh, this guy's not just saying jokes off the cuff, there are people writing there?'"
Robert goes on to give advice to writers aspiring to work in late night: "I would say to folks out there who want to do a late night packet that you should do one! It's intimidating - especially your first one - but you can do it. You can sit down for six hours and make your packet really perfect and good."
