Ian Rubin and +2 Comedy Bringing their A-game

Ian Rubin

CPAC is proud to announce the return of two of our favorite guests: Ian Rubin and +2 Comedy. Both will be bringing their familiar amazing stand-up acts, as well as some new things you may not have seen before.

Ian Rubin is one of CPAC’s long-time favorites and a personal friend of ours. He has been doing improv and stand-up comedy at Castle Point for many years, and we are happy to have him back.

+2 Comedy has also been at CPAC before, and is making their return with a bang, bringing their own amazing comedy. (And don’t worry, there’s more than enough time in the day to get in all the laughs you need.)

One of the new panels being presented this year is Ian Rubin and Janet Gleason’s Good Morning Castle Point. Bright and early at 9:30am, join them “as they discuss news about geek culture and the community, as well as Castle Point itself.” This panel is debuting at CPAC for the first time, so be sure to check it out!

Later near the end of the day, +2 Comedy is hosting their famous Anime Dating Game, where audience members become contestants and bachelors and bachelorettes in the ultimate nerdy contest.

More details to come as we finish up our schedule. Stay tuned!
