Here!, the premium gay network, will debut The Ben and Dave Show, hosted by TV and radio personalities Ben Harvey and Dave Rubin, on March 7.
Here! is promoting The Ben and Dave Show as the first TV program of its kind to ever feature two openly gay co-hosts. It consists of biting and uncensored commentary on issues which range from their boyfriends, celebrities who need to get out of the closet and “taste the rainbow,” gay-porn web sites, and heir moms.
A veteran radio personality, Harvey's career began in Philadelphia at WPLY before moving to New York City's rock music-based 92.3 K-Rock, or WXRK. Subsequently, he has proceeded to do on-air work for stations in Los Angeles and Boston, and more recently he has been regularly featured as a correspondent and DJ for “Radio with a Twist.”
The quick-witted Rubin began his comedy career nine years ago and since coming out of the closet has quickly become a fixture in the New York gay comedy scene. He has worked virtually every comedy club in New York City and is widely recognized as one of the hottest comics performing today. In addition to The Ben and Dave Show, he also hosts Hot Gay Comics for Here! Networks, where he interviews the brightest up-and-coming gay talent in the industry.
