‘Ethnic’ comedians, have long mined their difference for comedy gold. Ruven takes this raw material, and goes further, fashions it into finer detailed character observations that take the usual “my mother talks like this” and turn them on their head, forging combinations of race, popular culture and identity to reveal something new and very funny for the audience.
Ruven came to be on Nobody Likes Onions through Kyle Legacy. Patrick and Ruven love to vent about Kyle and his foolishness on shows. They both have an ongoing joke with Kyle about being interested in his cousin, Amber.
