Former “Scrubs” Actor to Perform
The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Medicine Class of 2017 will host, “The Todd,” a one-man comedy show featuring Robert Maschio, actor and comedian from the television series “Scrubs.” "The Todd" event will begin at 8 p.m. April 18 at the TTUHSC Academic Classroom Building Room 100.
Maschio, who portrayed Dr. Todd Quinlan on "Scrubs," will perform funny stories from the set of "Scrubs" and more. Matt Driver, Class of 2017 president and first-year medical student, said the class wanted an entertaining event to raise funds for the Class of 2017 projects.
“We invite the community out to see The Todd,” Driver said. “Maschio portrayed a doctor on television, and it will be comical to see his perspective of that fictional role compared to what we see in the real-world health care setting. His one-man show will showcase his comedy and insight to performing on a national television comedy.”
Maschio graduated from Columbia University. After college, he began writing and performing stand up comedy. He later performed stand up in New York, the Comic Strip and the Boston Comedy Club in the Village. He began on the NBC comedy “Scrubs” in 2001. His other television appearances include “Spin City,” “Cougar Town” and “Men at Work.”
