This week, Coming Up Short is coming up tall. Real tall! Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome the tallest comedian in the local scene, Brandon Bennington. After some initial awkwardness as Jon vents his short anger on Brandon for not having to deal with the heightists on online dating sites, the three get down to business.
Brandon’s comedic journey is an interesting one that wound through such diverse areas as playing college football, to being in the Navy. Brandon’s definitely not stopping here as he talks about his desire to move to Los Angeles and three discuss the merits of moving to a bigger market.

It’s the 1 year anniversary edition of the Coming Up Short podcast! February 13th of 2015 is when Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine first got together and created Coming Up Short and here they are a year later still going strong! That first episode was much different than what it is today. No theme music, no guest, just two short Jews talking about comedy and dating.
A year later, the show has matured. It’s still two short Jews, but it has it’s own theme song and each week a new guest drops by the Chula Vista Studios to talk about their comedic journey. This week, Jon and Eric welcome into the studio Tim Kirby!
Tim talks to the duo about his start in front of audiences as a corporate trainer who would inject a bit of humor into what he was saying to what he’s become today. The three discuss the rooms that Tim runs, including a new one at Bottega Wine Bar in Coconut Creek, as well as the people that really helped him out at the beginning.

The three dive in quickly to Nico’s start in comedy and how he came to be affiliated with Damien Figler and the Degenerate Comedy crew (hint: it’s all about a t-shirt). We also talk about Nico’s cross-country touring, how he came to spend the night at Doug Stanhope’s house. Plus, the three talk about the fact that none of them are Mike Atcherson hobbyists and how Manny Garavito’s episode came to be the most listened to of all time.

Coming into the Chula Vista Studios this week to join Eric and Jon is the one-and-only Chris Z! Chris’s comedy journey has been a long and interesting one that spans from an almost accidental beginning, to his adventures in Los Angeles, and onto the Middle East where he performed for the troops.
