Schneider, 54, most recently starred in a Netflix show called “Real Rob.” The comedy about his life in Hollywood has been running for two seasons. In addition to starring in the show, Schneider also writes, produces and directs it.

A native of California, Schneider joined SNL in 1988 as a writer and then became a cast member, sharing the stage with future movie stars Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Chris Farley and David Spade in the early ‘90s. The SNL writing staff won three Emmy Awards while Schneider was on it.

He eventually graduated to movies, getting starting roles in “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” “The Hot Chick,” “The Benchwarmers” and “Grown-Ups.” He’s also had iconic small parts in movies headlined by Sandler. Fans might remember him as the guy yelling “You can do it!” in “The Waterboy,” “50 First Dates” and “The Longest Yard.”

Schneider’s Sandy Springs show will begin at 8 p.m.
