“Hilariously weird.” – People
“One of the most awesome natural comic talents around.” – Oakland Tribune
This San Francisco stand-up comedy veteran is a strange cat with a wild history who appeals to the outrageous child hidden within the hearts of his loyal fans. His material is thoroughly original, incredibly detailed and conjures vivid images. Eccentric and random, Rubin doesn’t just take the stage, he attacks it. He’s big, he’s offbeat and is not easily forgotten. His determination to bring something unique to his audience is greatly appreciated by those who crave something different.
