Comedy

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

In 2000, Rubin continued his career at the New York City-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 2002, he co-founded several New York City-based comedy clubs, including Joe Franklin’s Comedy Club and The Comedy Company in Times Square, where he continued to do stand-up until 2007.

He was 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. In May 2009, Rubin co-created and co-hosted the podcast The Six Pack. From October 2011 to December 2012, The Six Pack was on Sirius XM Radio as a live talk show. While a part of Sirius XM, Rubin created his own account on YouTube called “Rubin Report” in early September 2012.

Political commentary

Dave Rubin describes himself as a classical liberal due to holding more conservative and libertarian views than most modern liberals. He cites his support for same-sex marriage, criminal justice reform, marijuana legalization, a social safety net, and public schooling as exemplifying his liberal views; albeit conditionally, he also favours the individual’s right to an abortion.

In 2017, he starred in a video by the conservative YouTube channel PragerU where he explained: “Why I Left the Left”. He has characterized progressivism as a “mental disorder”. He has self-described as part of the “intellectual dark web”.

Rubin frequently appears as a speaker at events hosted by Turning Point USA, a conservative student organization. When asked in July 2017 about Trump policies he disagreed with, he criticized Trump’s use of executive orders. Asked in January 2018 about what he disagreed with the right on, he stated that there was “a bit of a religious tone with the right”.

Rubin’s book Don’t Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in an Age of Unreason was published in April 2020 by Sentinel. It made The New York Times Best Seller list but was critically panned.

In October 2020, Rubin said he had “been a lifelong Democrat”, but would be voting for a Republican president for the first time and endorsed Donald Trump for a second term.

Accusations of platforming extremists

Critics have accused Dave Rubin of providing a platform for individuals considered political extremists, such as self-described New Right figure Paul Joseph Watson, Great Replacement conspiracy theorist Lauren Southern, white nationalist Stefan Molyneux, and far-right activist Tommy Robinson. A 2018 report from Data & Society described Rubin as part of a network on YouTube that amplified far-right politics.

The report cited as an example an interview that Rubin conducted with Stefan Molyneux in which Rubin asked Molyneux to elaborate on his views that races have different average IQ test results and that these differences are genetic. The report held that Rubin did not challenge Molyneux in any substantial way, concluding, “By letting him speak without providing a legitimate and robust counterargument, Rubin provides a free platform for white supremacist ideology on his channel.”
