But let’s rewind and take a trip back to Ruben’s official roots as professional funnyman. His persona, charisma, and style were carved out in the Black comedy clubs “Chitlin’ Circuit” of Los Angeles, California. This was certainly no place for the squeamish comedian to perform and it was here that many a great routine was forged. Ruben’s ability to be “who-larious” on stage earned him the title of being an honorary “Brutha” and qualified him to be one of the first Latino comedians to perform on BET’s Comic View. As he took the stage it was said, “Aw, this Mexican must be crazy (meaning funny) if he’s in our house!” No truer words have ever been spoken.
From that moment on Ruben’s career changed forever and he has not once looked back. His stories of struggle and triumph transcend every cultural barrier and truly captivate the listening audience as they all unite under one common spirit of laughter.
