George threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game today. Tell me the CIA isn't wiretapping all the people who booed him right this very second...

Back from the dentist and unfortunately nothing too crazy happened. I should note however, that I enjoy going to the dentist more than the average person for two reasons. One, my childhood dentist was a family friend who was very funny. Secondly, my current dentist has worked on several TV personalities and actors and my picture is placed in a very prime spot on the wall. It's a nice little ego boost before someone sticks a big needle in your mouth.

Actually, there were no needles today, it was just a standard cleaning, and a damn good one I must say. You know, that type of cleaning where you can now put your tongue in places in your mouth where it hasn't been in a long time.

I could've gone dirty there but I watched my tongue, so to speak.

So Obama was on The View today. I don't think I've ever seen four women fawn over a politician so much in one interview. I think Elisabeth even implied she was gonna leave the Republican party.

Why do they call it the Republican party? Can you possibly imagine a more boring party?

(Okay, I've made it this far without saying anything about you know what. It has to stay that way for a lil longer. Let's not forget what Yoda implied about patience.)

Anyone got any good plans for the weekend? I dunno what I'm doing but I sense fun on the horizon...
Full/regular/funny post today once I get back from the dentist.

(Any good comic should have a dentist routine, gimme two hours...)

"Always in motion the future is."

Hey, you try to find a line from an 800 year-old Jedi that fits every situation. I assure you it is not as easy as it might seem.

That being said, good things are on the horizon. Without getting into specifics, we're on hold at the moment but Yoda also said "patience being a virtue", so lets focus on that while I get back to regular Rubinville posting.

Okay, Yoda never said that, but he at least alluded to it when Qui-Gon Jin wanted to make Anakin Skywalker his Padawan learner even tough he was already training Obi-Wan.

Whoa, I really need to start watching some other movies...

Crazy two days here. Update tomorrow...

If you've ever seen a hotter cartoon duo I'd like to hear about it...

The big NCAA March Madness Tournament begins today and I have to admit I haven't filled out a bracket. I'm actually not a big fan of college basketball, for some reason I prefer it to be played by overpaid, half-trying professionals. Interestingly, thats also how I like my sex.

I'm not sure what that meant, either.

So meanwhile, since I thanked the the faithful people who leave comments around here, the comment numbers have been up a bit. Add to that the fact that someone donated a nice chunk of change by clicking the PayPal button in the right column the other day and it adds up to a happy Dave.

Speaking of happy Dave, I just cracked open a bottle of wine and am watching a classic Seinfeld. Does it get much better than this?

Okay, I know nobody wants to hear from a too-happy comedian, so lemme think of two news-related things...

1. Osama released a new tape today. I'm not gonna read the article, but I think it's safe to assume that not much has changed and that even by reading this that you qualify as an infidel.

2. Apparently someone got some unauthorized access to Obama's passport. Hillary, will you stop at nothing?

Oh, and one final thought since people seemed so interested in the FoxNews anus headline. Wouldn't it have been funnier if she had gotten an old anus instead of a new one? I mean that would be an even bigger screw-up, like if they just found an old anus lying around and just used that one to save money? Yup, I think we can all agree that it would've been even funnier that way...

I'm not even gonna post a picture for this one, just simply paste the headline from

Woman Goes for Leg Operation, Gets New Anus Instead

Finally, my dream has come true and I am in cartoon form. Actually, not quite cartoon form yet, but a fan from Israel just sent us this awesome sketch and I wanted to share it with you. Clearly, he took some liberties with our abs, but we're not complaining. And just look how nicely those shirts fit, I wonder where I can get some like that.

So, as you can imagine things have been pretty haywire since the TV debut. We're already gearing up for a bunch of new segments and guests so I hopefully won't forget to take a breath every now and then.........................

Whoa, sorry just passed out from lack of breath. This is getting tough.

So, lets see, what else? The governor of New York resigned, the dollar is worthless and Hillary and Barack are still duking it out.

Lengthy post tomorrow...

So, after 9 years of stand-up, 813 posts on Rubinville and 12,005 slices of pizza, The Ben and Dave Show debuts tonight. It's strange because it sort of feels like the end of a familiar journey and the beginning of a unknown one, albeit one I've been ready to tackle for a long time.

I just wanted to stop for a second and thank YOU, all of the people who comment on my ramblings here. Some of you are pretty consistent, some of you totally random, and some of you do it once and never again. Every time you write a little something however, it signals to me that someone is listening and I should keep writing.

So, if you've come this far stick with me folks, I think it's about to get really exciting...

Needless to say it has been a pretty bonkers week. The big Ben and Dave debut is Friday and I've been running around like a madman. Combine that with the Eliot Spitzer situation and you can see why I didn't post yesterday.

I'll let everyone else pontificate about Spitzer, though I do want to mention one thing. The girl, Kristen, is an aspiring singer. Wouldn't it be something if this whole situation launches her career? In a way it is just the next step in the evolution of reality TV. And while people get booted from American Idol for having a sordid past, in real-reality if you're a hooker who sleeps with the governor it becomes your true career launcher. I guess now we just have to wait and see.

As for me, it looks like I will have made it without sleeping with the governor. Sure I slept with a couple Senators, but who hasn't these days?

Now more more importantly than any of this, there is a new Star Wars movie coming to theaters in August. Excited, a lil? here's the trailer...

Rumor has it that here! has already begun playing a bun of Ben and Dave teasers. We even got a new logo on the website. Nothing like a nice silhouette, don't you agree?

Saturday, March 08, 2008


Just in case you haven't picked up the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, you can see here that we got a nice lil write-up. If for no other reason than the hair highlights, Ben is Ryan Seacrest, so I guess that make me Simon. I suppose I could accept that level of success...

Apologies for the slow week, folks. I promise for a full-week of posts next week, but until then enjoy this clip of John McCain having a meltdown. Is this the man you want with his finger on the button?

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

Did ya miss me? I know I took an extra two day off this week but don't worry, the people in HR were informed well in advance.

So, as you guys know I'm fully backing Obama in this election. I still love Mike Gravel though, and he's even still making videos for YouTube...

In other news, things continue to cook and career-stuff is falling into place. Looks like there will be a national magazine mention next week, but I'll stay hush on that until it happens.

Playing basketball tonight and just had a delicious tuna sandwich. Life is good, people, life is good.

You got anything good for me?
