“I go to the school weeks after the show, and the kids come over to me and say, ‘Hey Broccoli Rob, I ate my spinach last night!’ or ‘I ate my broccoli!’”
Broccoli Rob wears a green wig and sings about fruits and vegetables to schoolchildren in Long Island. He does a martial-arts bit, he has a Lady Gaga parody, and from afar, as my friend Cole Stryker pointed out, he looks eerily like weirdo comedian Scott Gairdner, and his promo video sounds just like a Gairdner bit. But he’s really real! He’s also a normal adult country musician named Robert Poe.
