Robert Michael Slayton (born May 25, 1955) is an American actor, voice actor, and stand-up comedian sometimes referred to as "The Pitbull of Comedy" or "Yid Vicious". Slayton is probably best known for a supporting role in the 2001 film Bandits, and as a frequent guest on The Adam Carolla Show.
He has been featured on many popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin and Bean, Tom Leykis, and Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw. He played Joey Bishop in the 1998 movie The Rat Pack and a character named simply "Slayton" in The Mind of the Married Man. He also appeared as himself on the IFC television show "Maron" in 2013.
In 1988, Slayton married Teddie Lee Tillett. Tillett died in March 2016 and in June 2017, Slayton and his daughter sued the Sherman Oaks Hospital for wrongful death, claiming the doctors did not properly diagnose her pneumonia. In November 2017 the two sides settled.
