Theres something ultimately endearing about a guy who can both make you laugh and kick your ass. For most of his life, Rob Riggle has been that guy. Enjoying a steady swell of notoriety as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show with John Stewart , this Marine Corps Major-turned-comic has garnered a mean rep as a funny man who can take his act anywhere.
