Guests: Episodes with Dave Rubin

David Joshua Rubin is an American conservative political commentator and YouTuber. He is the creator and host of The Rubin Report, a political talk show on YouTube and on the network BlazeTV. Launched in 2013, the show was originally part of TYT Network, until Rubin left in 2015, due to ideological differences.

Rubin has written two books and is known for being a staunch critic of progressivism, the political left, and the Democratic Party. He registered as a Republican in Florida in 2022.

Rubin began his career in comedy in 1998, doing stand-up and attending open-mics in New York City. In 1999, he became an intern at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

He continued his career at the New York City-based Comedy Cellar, where he joined with other comedians to create a public-access television series, a news program parody called The Anti-Show. In 2002, he co-founded several New York City-based comedy clubs, where he continued to do stand-up until 2007.

He was also the host of two podcasts, Hot Gay Comics and The Ben and Dave Show, which were turned into a television series on the here! television network.

Rubin is gay and supports same-sex marriage, but has also said that he would not take legal action against a Christian baker if one refused to make a wedding cake for his wedding.

In 2022, Rubin spoke out against rainbow logos for gay pride month. His Twitter account was suspended after he retweeted a tweet in which Jordan Peterson misgendered actor Elliot Page.

Until late 2018, Rubin received much of his funding through Patreon, a crowdfunding site on which Rubin said he received over $10,000 per month before deletion. Rubin and Dr. Jordan B. Peterson announced their intent to leave the platform following Sargon of Akkad‘s ban, which they described as an assault on free speech.
