Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Despite never winning an award during his long career, comedian/actor Benny Rubin became a familiar face to both moviegoers and television viewers during the formative years of both formats. Rubin got his start in radio (appearing on such popular shows as "Stop Me If You've Heard This One" and "The Jack Benny Program"), before regularly appearing in movies and on television shows. One of his better known appearances was as the character Professor A.K. Rimple in the Three Stooges short film "Space Ship Sappy" in 1957. Rubin would also make over 50 appearances on "The Jack Benny Program" television show (not to be confused with the radio show), as well as appearances on "The Red Skelton Hour," "Petticoat Junction," and "I Dream of Jeannie," among others. Additionally, Rubin was a movie and television writer (writing an episode of "Gunsmoke" in 1970), and released his autobiography, "Come Backstage with Me," in 1980.
