WHO THE HECK IS BOB RUBIN?
“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. Eccentric and random, this unusual comedian doesn’t just take the stage, he attacks it. He’s big, he’s offbeat and is not easily forgotten.
A talented writer, performer and actor, “The Rube” is currently seen in his Netflix comedy special, “Bob Rubin: Oddities and Rarities”, presented by legendary comedian, Patton Oswalt.
Bob has portrayed many interesting characters over the span of his career, such as “Gorgeous George” in the hugely successful cult classic follow up, Boondock Saints 2 –All Saints Day. He was one of the seven artists followed in the documentary Off the Boulevard released to critical acclaim. He also played memorable roles in Rob Schneider’s The Animal (Revolution) and The Hot Chick (Disney), and lent his talented voice to the Disney cartoon, Brandy and Mr. Whiskers for the Disney network.
Earlier in his career, he was seen on Late Friday (NBC), Roseanne (ABC) and several cable stand-up shows, and was a key staff writer and actor on the sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Special (FOX). Bob was also a regular guest on the comedy-friendly and wildly popular Alex Bennett show on San Francisco’s The KQAK and Live 105 radio stations, entertaining his listeners with his memorable and outrageous antics.
In between his live performances, Bob has been working on his forthcoming book,“Nar Darr: The Book That Didn’t Have to be Written”, coming soon.
Bob resides in Hollywood CA.
