Rube Ruben is a character created and portrayed by Charles Schneider who evokes the spirit of vaudeville and burlesque. He is a tribute to the old-time, corny baggy pants comedians of  a by-gone era. His headshot may be found in several famous New York delis. For several years “Rube” was the M.C. of the Velvet Hammer burlesque show.

You never know where this wise-cracking character will turn up. Although he has not been seen for some time, numerous sightings in downtown Las Vegas have been reported.
