As a first generation American woman of Pakistani & Muslim descent, Rubi Nicholas is the antithesis of what one would expect with such a strong ethnic background. Born to a culture steeped in the tradition of the quiet, compliant female, Rubi breaks the mold. Far from choosing the typical life as an obedient wife, she has walked a variety of career paths, chosen a non-traditional family route and now, has succeeded in breaking even more rules as a single working mom, with two kids, three Master’s degrees, day jobs in health care and academia, and many nights as a working professonal comedian. Recently selected the winner of TV’s “Search for Funniest Mom in America,” onNick@Nite – a nationally televised series, Rubi’s charming sense of timing and clear charisma make her a natural story teller. Rubi’s humor incorporates her ethnic heritage, her family life, the antics of her two little girls, and how taking a risk can change you for the better. Her ability to weave together her story and allow the audience to experience her life while thinking about the ways in which we can all take a chance and find common ground is a remarkable experience.
