David Joshua Rubin (born June 26, 1976) is an American political commentator, comedian, and talk show host. He is the creator and host of the political talk show The Rubin Report, formerly part of Ora TV and The Young Turks Network. He previously hosted The Six Pack podcast and radio show on Sirius XM Radio.
Topics Rubin frequently comments on include political correctness, free speech, politics, mass media, religion, foreign affairs, and what he considers to be the ideological split between liberalism and progressivism.
David Joshua Rubin was born on June 26, 1976 in Brooklyn, New York. He grew up in a 'fairly secular Jewish household on Long Island.' He spent his adolescence in Syosset and then resided on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for 13 years.
In 2000, Rubin continued his career at the New York-based Comedy Cellar. Later that year he joined with other Comedy Cellar comedians to create a public-access television series, a news program parody called The Anti-Show which was secretly filmed at NBC Studios in 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
In May 2009, Rubin co-created and co-hosted a new podcast called The Six Pack, which went on to become a top podcast on iTunes. In October 2011, The Six Pack was picked up by Sirius XM Radio and began its run as a live talk show until its end in December 2012.
In January 2013, Rubin left radio and began his television career. He was offered his own politics and current events talk show, The Rubin Report, on The Young Turks Network and moved from New York City to Los Angeles, California.
Rubin has described himself as a classical liberal. In the 2016 presidential election he voted for Gary Johnson, but says he regretted this decision a few months after. He has opposed elements of the progressive movement he identifies as the regressive left. In an interview in March 2018, Rubin said he would vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 U.S. presidential election if a progressive like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, or Gavin Newsom is running against him. Rubin also characterized Trump as a political moderate, saying "he's a Democrat in a lot of ways," and spoke favorably of Trump's cuts in government regulations.
Rubin publicly came out as gay in 2006, which he has referred to as his "defining moment". In December 2014, he announced his engagement to producer David Janet and the couple married on August 27, 2015.
