Biography

Robert Francis ‘Bobcat’ Goldthwait (born May 26, 1962) is an American comedian, actor, screenwriter, and film and television director. He is commonly known for his energetic, rabid stage personality, his dark, acerbic humor, and his high-pitched voice.

Goldthwait was born in Syracuse, New York in 1962. He decided on a career as a comedian at an early age and was performing professionally while still in high school at the age of 15. He attended Bishop Grimes High School in East Syracuse, graduating with voice actor Tom Kenny (the voice of Spongebob Squarepants) in the class of 1980. He, Tom Kenny, and political satirist Barry Crimmins performed in a comedy trio, billing themselves as “The Generic Comics” and going by the stage names of “Bobcat, Bearcat, and Tomcat.” Early in his career, he co-wrote with Boston comedy writer Martin Olson who is listed as writer on his first two comedy specials, Share the Warmth (HBO) and Don’t Watch This Show (Cinemax). Goldthwait became recognized as a solo stand-up comedian and had two televised concert specials in the 1980s: An Evening with Bobcat Goldthwait — Share the Warmth and Bob Goldthwait — Is He Like That All the Time?

Goldthwait and Robin Williams had a short-lived comedy partnership, using the names “Jack Cheese” and “Marty Fromage.” Goldthwait used the name Jack Cheese when he appeared in the film Tapeheads; when Williams made a cameo as Mime Jerry in Goldthwait’s Shakes the Clown, he was billed as Marty Fromage.
