For the past decade, Sam Robison could’ve had just about any role he wanted on the Wilmington stage.
A strong actor and singer with a flair for comedy, he played dramatic roles (“Two Rooms”) and even did rope tricks during a crack portrayal of Will Rogers. But perhaps the height of his local theatrical career came last year when he sang “Mary Jane/Mary Lane” as Jimmy Harper in City Stage’s “Reefer Madness,” in which he was hilarious, tuneful and emotionally resonant all at once; it was a slice of theatrical perfection.
And even when Robison was taking breaks from plays for a year or two at a time, he always appeared in weekly shows for the bawdy sketch comedy troupe Changing Channels, which he performs with for the last time on Thursday, Oct. 2, before moving to the Big Apple later this month. I caught up with Robison for a quick Q&A earlier this week.
You’ve performed hundreds of times in Changing Channels over the last 10 years. Looking back, what are some of your favorite sketches or characters?
Mr. Sockley. A guy comes in for a job interview, and the interviewer is talking through a sock puppet. But he also has a giant gun. (In mean voice:) Sit down! (Then, in a teeny-tiny kids’ voice:) OK, hello.
Yeah, that was the joke, right – nice … mean! … nice … mean!
Yeah, until the (interviewee) just ends up crying, and Mr. Sockley laughs: Ah ha ha ha ha! It’s all about pain. In my opinion, comedy on any level is about pain. Period. Someone else’s pain.
You also appeared on “One Tree Hill” and did some other film and TV stuff.
I did (multiple) characters on episodes of “Dawson’s Creek,” “One Tree Hill” and “Surface.”
Oh yeah, I remember once you played some kind of scumbag hitting on Sophia Bush.
That was the second character I played (on “One Tree”), the heroin-pushing pedophile. Which was so much fun, my mother was so proud of that. The first one was a physical trainer who (Bush) actually tricks into giving her pain pills. Yeah. So me, Sophia and drugs all apparently go hand in hand.
How would you describe your process as an actor?
I do my homework. I have to sit down and meticulously go through my script. My first step is to write out every single one of my lines … With some things, like (the one-man show) “Santaland Diaries,” I made myself do that, probably five or six times, every single word.
Judging from your work in Changing Channels, I’m guessing that you’re not one of those comics who thinks it’s easier to be clean than dirty.
It’s harder to be funny without being blue. That’s a definite. But it’s even harder to make dirty comedy clever.
What’s your goal when you move to New York?
To be able to make a living doing theater. I can’t imagine anything more satisfying.
