Robert Klein was a son of Benjamin and Frieda Klein, and grew up in a Jewish family in New York City. He went to the DeWitt Clinton High School, and although planning to study medicine, he changed his mind after graduating with a Bachelor degree in History and Political Science from Alfred University. Klein decided to pursue an acting career and joined the Yale Drama School, then in 1965 he became a new cast member of The Second City.

After spending a few years in theatre, Robert debuted on-screen in Hal Ashby’s Oscar Award-nominated movie “The Landlord” (1970) starring Beau Bridges, Lee Grant, and Diana Sands. He continued with the Golden Globe Award-nominated “The Owl and the Pussycat” (1970) alongside Barbra Streisand and George Segal, while he also appeared in three movies starring Alain Delon, “The Gypsy” (1975), “Boomerang” (1976), and “Le gang” (1977). In 1978, Klein played in Hal Needham’s Oscar Award-nominated “Hooper” with Burt Reynolds, Jan-Michael Vincent, and Sally Field, but then didn’t have any notable roles during the ‘80s.

In 1990, Robert had a role in “Tales from the Darkside: The Movie”, and then in 25 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-nominated series “Sisters” (1993-1996). In the mid-‘90s, Klein appeared in “Radioland Murders” (1994) and “Mixed Nuts” (1994) starring Steve Martin, while in 1996, he played alongside George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer in the Oscar Award-nominated “One Fine Day”. He ended the decade in the Oscar Award-nominated “Primary Colors” (1998) starring John Travolta, Emma Thompson, and Kathy Bates.

In the early 2000s, Klein had parts in such movies as “People I Know” (2002) with Al Pacino, Téa Leoni, and Ryan O’Neal, and in “Two Weeks Notice” (2002) alongside Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant. By the end of the 2000s, Robert had played in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” (2003) starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, and in “Reign Over Me” (2007) with Adam Sandler, Don Cheadle, and Jada Pinkett Smith. In 2010, he appeared in “The Back-up Plan” alongside Jennifer Lopez and Alex O’Loughlin, while most recently, Klein worked in the series “The Mysteries of Laura” (2014-2016) starring Debra Messing.

Regarding his personal life, Robert Klein was married to opera singer Brenda Boozer from 1973 to 1989 and has a child with her. After the divorce, Klein was in a relationship with the fashion model Debbie Dickinson for a number of years, but is believed to be unattached now.
