bioJosh Ruben is a 5-time Webby award winning actor, writer, and director, best known for appearing in thousands of shorts for comedy megasite CollegeHumor. In 2017, Splitsider published two articles - “Josh Ruben Should Be a Snapchat Superstar" and the other singing praises of his short film, FREDDY DERRYL: "Like Fargo, Freddy Derryl boasts a quiet, inimitable indigenousness that could’ve only come to hilarious fruition in these sets of hands." Currently, Josh is directing half of upcoming Netflix series, "The Green Beret's Guide To Surviving: The Apocalypse" executive produced by Matt Damon & Peter Berg.
Josh was listed in Paste Magazine’s “The 15 Best You Made It Weird Episodes” in reference to a 2-hour interview where Josh and Pete Holmes (HBO's "Crashing") do ridiculous impressions, warranting its own Thanksgiving re-release on Nerdist. Josh's podcast, The Mindhouse, part of Jake & Amir’s HeadGum network, debuted its first live show at SXSW in March 2016.
Josh appeared opposite Adam Devine in Season 3 of "Adam Devine’s House Party" on Comedy Central, as the son of Chris Elliott and Amy Sedaris in Go90's "Thanksgiving" and co-stars in feature indie, "What Children Do", an official selection of the 2017 Cinequest Film Festival. Josh is also one of the founding producers of The Woodstock Comedy Festival, a non-profit event in his home town of Woodstock, New York, which donates all proceeds to the fight against domestic violence and human trafficking.

Great guests and funny voices with Josh Ruben. The Mindhouse Podcast is kind of like “WTF” but less articulate. New episodes Tuesdays! Intro track by my sister, Rachael Yamagata!
