In his two years as a Daily Show correspondent, brawny actor-comedian Rob Riggle did everything from hassle Wolf Blitzer to give "real Americans" a tour of NYC. Now, he has left Comedy Central and recently signed a contract with CBS to create and star in his own half-hour comedy series. At his two-night stint at Comix, expect him to try out some of his new material for the show, which he's already hinted may be heavily inspired by his time spent in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
