Eugenio Derbez stars in "The Rob Schneider Comedy" on CBS. On the big screen, he stars in "Jack and Jill" (2011), opposite Adam Sandler and Katie Holmes.

Eugenio Derbez is one of Mexico's and Latin America's most loved comedians, and the most recognized in the Spanish-speaking population in the United States.
On the big screen, Derbez was singled out by critics for his poignant performance in "Under the Same Moon," the highest-grossing Spanish-language film in the United States of all time. "No Eres Tu, Soy Yo" ("It's Not You, It's Me"), starring Derbez, was the top-grossing Mexican film of 2010, and the fourth-highest-grossing film in Mexican film history.
Derbez received rave reviews in the United States for his English-speaking performance in "Latinologues," which toured the U.S. and held a limited engagement at the Helen Hayes Theater on Broadway.
Derbez has starred, directed, written and produced many television shows, including "Al Derecho y Al Derbez," "Derbez en Cuando," "XH-DRBZ," and "La Familia Peluchen." His shows are the highest rated in Latin America, viewed by more than 25 million people weekly just in Mexico alone. Derbez is also currently producing and directing the television sitcom "Vecinos," which since its debut in 2010 has received top ratings. 
He directed, co-wrote and starred in the first comedic Mexican soap opera in 1997, "No Tengo Madre." Due to his massive appeal and sharp timing he's been asked to be a roving reporter for the World Cup and Olympic Games year after year. He co-hosted the 2010 Latin Grammys in Las Vegas for the second time in a row to its highest ratings.
He has starred in both comedic and dramatic films roles, including Sundance Grand Jury prize winner "Blood of my Blood." He was voiced roles in the Spanish-language releases of the animated films "Mulan," "Mulan 2," "Dr. Doolittle," "Dr. Doolittle 2," "102 Dalmatians," "Shrek" and "Shrek 2," which he also adapted for the Spanish language. Derbez was also invited by the Discovery Channel to adapt the British series "The Office" for Latin America.
On stage, Derbez has starred in many plays, including the more recent Spanish version of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," which he starred in, directed and produced. He has been awarded Best Actor in a Theatrical Comedy several times and presented with the Theatrical Comedy Award by both the Theatre Critics Association and the Theatre Journalists Association of Mexico.
Derbez has also written two comedy-themed books about one of his most popular characters: "Armando Hoyos' Unauthorized Autobiography" and "Armando Hoyos: Diccionario de la Real Epidemia de la Lengua." He has recorded three albums: "Ronco," a spoof of the famous tejano band Bronco, which spawned a live show; the spoken comedy album "The Letters of Julio Esteban"; and "Al ritmo dance," which sold more than 250,000 copies. Derbez has also released three video titles, compiling the best of his performances.
Born in Mexico City, Derbez is the son of the very respected cinema and television actress Sylvia Derbez. He began acting at age 12 and has a degree in film directing from the Mexican Institute of Cinematography and Theater.
