He revealed that he wanted to make a movie, but because of that Coronavirus Pandemic, that was not possible – so instead he created a “film for the ears”.
Robbins says the five-episode podcast pays homage to his 1992 film Bob Roberts, in which he appears as the right-wing politician for the U.S. Senate.
The title character Bobbo Supreme is described as “a childish, narcissistic lounge singer, game show hosting, narcoleptic, racist billionaire, recording artist and free world leader in the final spurt of his re-election campaign”.
Robbins has suggested that his character make fun of the US president Donald Trump could be like “behind the scenes” asking, “How do you satirize satire?
“If we had written this script of the Trump presidency, nobody would have bought it, they would have said no, it is not plausible.”
He added, “It starts with a dream and ends with a dream, and during Bobbo Supreme we are not sure if we are dreaming about it or if it is his nightmare or our nightmare.”
Bobbo Supreme is packed with Jack Black, Isla Fisher and Haley Joel Osment, the star of The Sixth Sense, with music by brother David Robbins – who was also behind the music for Bob Roberts.
Robbins admitted to producing something in COVID was “a big challenge”.
He said, “We had 35 actors in different locations across the country. Some recorded in their basements, others in their closets.
“Somehow we got together and did it live, and the technology allowed us to do that. So the real challenge was editing it to make the tempo and the comedy clear and clear. ”
He continued, “We all need a good laugh. I’m not sure anyone will change their mind about who they will vote for. ” [in November’s presidential election].
“But I am sure that in this time of doom and negative news, it is important to gather in some kind of community to share the laughter with others.
“That was what we all missed very much.
“This idea that we can go to restaurants and be part of a community or a theater or a cinema or a concert hall and experience emotions and stories with other people.
“To know that we are not alone, to know that we are not crazy, that there are other people who have similar concerns and we can share a collective humor with them, a collective anger, a collective fear and part of it being a community.

“My hope with Bobbo Supreme is that it makes it practical.”
And when asked if he would like to get into politics after playing a candidate in Bob Roberts, Robbins replied, “No, I really prefer a satirist.
“I don’t think there was ever a politician satirist?”
But laughing, he added: “Some satirize themselves all the time.”
