** In a ''New York Times'' interview, [[https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/29/travel/rob-corddry-actor-comedian-travel.html he remarked]]: ''"I have a designated bag of all kinds of outdated computer wires, every connector imaginable. I should probably go through it and throw out my USB printer cableó who needs that anymore? Do I need two micro USB connectors? I donít remember plugging them into anything. Iím an Eagle Scout and the Boy Scout motto is ĎBe prepared,í so Iím prepared. [[TakeThatMe To go back in time.]]"''
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny / SurrealHumor: Corddry's work often has shades of this.

His younger brother Nate, born September 8, 1977, is an actor as well.[[note]]If you're curious, they look nothing alike, to the point that Nate busts his brother's balls in public by saying that Rob is his ''father'' (see [[http://www.avclub.com/article/nate-corddry-answers-our-new-slate-11-questions-213984 here]]).[[/note]]



* FantasticRacism: Somehow, Corddry and his collaborators had the idea of making ''clowns'' into their own race, managing to actually pull it off on ''Childrens Hospital''. It helps that the program is a great case of ItRunsOnNonsensoleum.
