Katie Rubin is a nationally touring Stand Up Comic, Solo Show Performer, Regional Theatre Actress, Writing/Improv Coach, and Energetic Healer. She earned her MFA in Acting from UC Davis and her BA in Theatre and Dance at Amherst College.
Katie has written and toured 3 hour-long Stand Up Comedy Shows to Theaters, Comedy Clubs, Universities, Women’s Events, Spiritual Retreats, Cruises, Corporate Jobs, and a wide variety of venues.
Her first professional; solo show, “Insides OUT!”, toured to venues across the country for 8 years. “Insides OUT!” received a nine week Equity production at the Sacramento Theater Company. The show has toured to over 100 events and venues.
Ms. Rubin’s second solo show, “Amazing and Sage” was commissioned by Professional Regional Theatre, Capital Stage in Sacramento. “My Spiritual Death” toured for several years, followed by “Why I Died, a Comedy!” which was produced at The Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles, and was then picked up by The Echo and The LA Women’s Theatre Festival.” Why I Died” has had several regional theatre productions, one of which lead to the commissioning of Ms. Rubin’s 5th solo show, “F*%k Christmas (But Gently, and With Love),” which ran 2 nights at Capital Stage in Sacramento.
Rubin has performed professionally for more than 15 years and regards her road to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction as part of the reason for her multifaceted creative abilities. “I’ve done so much personal growth work, and have made so many efforts to clear what’s been limiting for me in consciousness, that the creative work I do can only benefit from that,” she says. The aim of her work? To point out daily human struggles and then laugh about them. Recovery doesn’t define her, she says. Rather, her inspiration comes “from being alive and paying attention.”
