Robert Peterpaul is an award-winning actor, writer and celebrity interviewer with a passion for storytelling and spreading kindness. An NJ native, he discovered his love for the arts at a young age, frequently found either: putting on shows in his living room or browsing the aisles at Blockbuster.
At age 9, Robert made his Off-Broadway debut at the York Theatre and from there was cast in the Broadway musical SEUSSICAL. He has been working in TV/Film and theatre ever since, being named "Connecticut's BEST ACTOR" by BroadwayWorld along the way. Some theater highlights include: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, NEWSIES and JERSEY BOYS. On-screen he’s been seen in tv shows like, CBS's BULL, ABC’s PAN AM and comedy sketches for THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT and films like James Franco and Netflix's KING COBRA, SONY's WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT and most recently the Amazon feature SITTING IN BARS WITH CAKE alongside Yara Shahidi and Bette Midler.
Robert has been a writer for almost a decade, writing for major publications and projects such as: NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Screen Rant, The Huffington Post, Backstage, Writer’s Weekly and, HOLA! USA, where he served as an editor for six years. Throughout his career he’s been fortunate enough to interview talent like: Pulitzer Prize-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tony-winner Kristin Chenoweth, Olympian Laurie Hernandez and more. This led him to eventually hosting at prestigious live and red carpet events, including the Tony Awards.
To further spread kindness and positivity, Robert created the podcast "The Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul,” which was signed by The Broadway Podcast Network and now ranks in the top 3% of podcasts globally. The podcast converses with artists from all areas of the entertainment industry who use their platform to make the world a better place. From global superstars like Meghan Trainor to icons like Carol Burnett, Robert has gotten kindness tips, self-care advice, funny stories and more from the brightest stars in the business.
Most importantly, Robert is intent on giving back. He and his family formed the nonprofit THE THOMAS PETERPAUL FOUNDATION in honor of his late brother Thomas who passed away from cancer. TPF has helped countless pediatric cancer patients and their families since its inception. Robert notably teamed up with Novartis and spoke before congress at the US Capitol on behalf of TPF to get the CAR T Cell Therapy approved (read more in the NY Times). In addition, he works for the nonprofit WOMEN IN ENTERTAINMENT, which assists women both working in and aspiring to work in the entertainment industry.
