Comedian Tom Rubin Says “Failure IS an Option!” See “Tom Rubin-Success Gur” at the Santa Monica Playhouse! 4/1 +

This is NOT an April Fools’ joke! It’s a “for real” moment here that you are being introduced to!
Failure IS an option, contrary to what the success gurus preach and LA comedian Tom Rubin (Think of Stephen Colbert-ish humorist seriously tweaking Tony Robbins) shows his audience how to be a better failure in his upcoming one-man comedy show (In which he satirizes success/self-help experts), at the Santa Monica Playhouse!


Here’s what you get in this laugh-packed event with Tom Rubin:

· Why we need to complain more … proof positive … when the neighbors tell the cops about the psychopath next door, they always say, “He was such a nice man … he never complained.”

· Why you can’t force yourself to be happy because it’s really just easier to be a masochist.

· How to lower our expectations.

· How to deal with challenges … well, sort of.

· How to use your boss’s bullshit against them … the word “boss” even has BS in the name… think about that.


“Tom Rubin – Success Guru” runs on April 1, 8 and 15.

About Tom Rubin
Tom Rubin graduated from Harvard University and moved from New Jersey to Southern California to hone his comedic talent on the comedy club circuit, while working his day job as an entertainment attorney. Tom has performed at such well-known venues as The Improv, Comedy Store, Ice House and Laugh Factory. In 2006, Tom wrote and performed a one-man comedy show based on his life, which enjoyed a successful run of theatrical performances. Most recently, Tom created his 75-minute comedy show Tom Rubin – Success Guru, which spoofs self-help and motivational speakers such as Tony Robbins.

Surviving the Corporate World.

Tom Rubin – Success Guru was inspired by Tom’s experiences in the hyper-competitive worlds of the Ivy League, corporate America and Hollywood. In his new show, Tom turns success guru logic on its head with the surprisingly uplifting message “Failure IS An Option!”

Are you digging these videos? This is a very talented man! I love that he’s got enough guts to mock the current system. Failure is part of life and it’s part of invention and research. If everything was always successful, life would be very different. The point of failure is to show you that there is another way. Thomas Edison knew it and so did Babe Ruth!
