NYC Stand Up Comedian

Dr. Ruben Rajah

Ruben Rajah is a comedian and doctor who embodies the concept of a global citizenry. Born in Malaysia, educated in Australia, and an American citizen for over 10 years, he is culturally comfortable everywhere and nowhere. Married for 20 years and parent to a dog and cat, his humor is informed by years of ignoring them and day-dreaming about telling jokes. Life according to Ruben is both funny and predictably unpredictable, like the taste of his Malaysian cooking.

Born with no athletic ability Ruben decided a career in Medicine would garner female attention (it did). He lived in Seattle for 17 years and practiced Radiology in Australia, Canada and the United States before moving to New York.

He enjoyed the narcissistic exercise of writing for this website in the third person and wonders how much more he has to say before you decide to come to one of his shows…?
