About Field Cantey
Field Cantey is the worst. No really, it’s on his bio on Robot Johnson’s website so it must be true. He also has a fear of clowns, creepy dolls and electronic trash cans, which is why we torment him with them at any opportunity. Like having our Creepy Cindy doll greet him the minute he walks in our front door. And before you call DSS, we really don’t keep him chained up in our garage with a plethora of sponges. We give him a new one every week, and take away the old one so he can’t build an escape raft.
About Noah Lemmons
Noah Lemmons is one of those rare people who was actually born in Charlotte, and didn’t just move here. He graduated from Appalachian State University in 2006 and started doing comedy in 2009 by performing improv with the Charlotte Comedy Theater. He did stand-up in 2010 and then moved up to writing for Robot Johnson in 2011.
Based on this picture, may think that Noah is a hobo we picked up to give Field company in the garage, but we promise – he came in a car and left of his own free will. The underground sponge battles you may have heard rumors about are not real – or at least you can’t prove it.
About Robot Johnson
Robot Johnson is made up of an eclectic mix of actors, writers, stand ups, improv and sketch comedy veterans. That mix allows us to create original content shows that will have a little something for everyone and a lot of something for sketch fans.
The group formed in late 2007. Since then, they’ve written and produced well over a hundred original-content sketch comedy shows. Robot Johnson has over the years won a number of accolades, boons, pittances and windfalls such as a Metrolina Theatre Award in 2009, Charlotte Magazine’s Best Sketch Comedy Group in 2010 & 2013, Funniest Twitter account in 2013, Funniest Instagram in 2014. In addition to delighting comedy fans in Charlotte, Robot Johnson performs in comedy festivals across the Southeast including the Charleston Comedy Festival, NC Comedy Arts Festival and Asheville’s SketchFest.
