That's a wrap! Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine tie a bow around the Coming Up Short podcast by spending the final 30 minutes talking about episodes past, interesting guests, and Coming Up Short trivial facts.

Though we say it during the podcast, it's important for everyone who's listened to, supported, and been a guest on the show to know that we really appreciate everything you've done for us. It's been an amazing ride and we're both so glad that we had the opportunity to give back to the South Florida scene.

Listen, enjoy, and thank you.


It's the penultimate episode of the Coming Up Short podcast as Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine wind down their nearly two-year run of interviewing comedians from the South Florida scene. There's still one more interview left to be had and that honor goes to Kel Thompson.

Kel will forever have the distinction of being the very last comedian interviewed on Coming Up Short. The three talk about Kel's travels from Texas to Florida and his start in standup comedy. They also discuss how important it is to set and achieve goals, especially when it comes to performing.

Listen to this second-to-last episode of Coming Up Short and tune in next week for the very last one!


Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine flip the script this week for our 3rd to last Coming Up Short podcast. Normally, our guests are on the talent side of the mic, but this week we wanted something different. Our guest this week is Jeff Anderson, one half of Semi Professional Productions, the team that's brought you some great rooms such as City Pub, Stingers on the Beach, and the Kelly Brothers Irish Pub.

Jeff gives our listeners something that they don't normally hear, information about how to scout and start a room. If you're at all interesting in hosting your own room, this is the episode to listen to.

Even better, we get some funny stories about the crazy things that can go on when you're looking for rooms to start. You won't believe it until you hear it.



Keeping our streak of guest with serial-killer like names, the Coming Up Short podcast welcomes Joseph Richard Nay to the Chula Vista Studios. Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine have a blast talking to Joe for what is our 4th to last episode.

The discussion took a few different twists and turns and went to some places that Coming Up Short normally doesn't go. First we start talking about Joe's comedy start, where it's been and where it's going, but then Joe turns the tables. Our guest starts interviewing our hosts!

This episode was a lot of fun to record and we know it will be a lot of fun to listen to.



It's the "have a guest with a serial killer name" edition the Coming Up Short podcast as Jon Levine and Ira Rosenberg (listen and you'll understand) welcome Jon Curtis Rose into the Chula Vista Studios. Names were not only discussed, but given out.

In addition to the name talk, the three discussed Jon's career as a professional museum and why he owns not one, but two tuxedos. Also discussed is how taking an improv class or two helps you perform better on stage when doing standup.

Our streak of Miami comedians remains intact this week on the Coming Up Short podcast as Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome into the Chula Vista Studios Rhett Thompson!

We follow Rhett's incredible journey from Akron, Ohio through New York City where she worked for some high-profile news agencies. It was this work that ultimately drove her into the arms of comedy.

This is one of the last few remaining episodes of the Coming Up Short podcast with Jon's move to Atlanta pending, so listen and enjoy!


Keeping the streak of Miami comedians alive, Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome David Del Rosario into the Chula Vista Studios for this week's episode of the Coming Up Short podcast. This show went by super quick as David pulled back the curtain on his career, and we're not just talking about comedy.

David talks about his humble beginnings as a high school baseball player and how that led into his lifelong dream career as a food-service worker at a hospital. That dream was unexpectedly cut short and that's what brought him not only to the stage, but as the 'face' of the Ford Motor Company.

It's an action-packed episode this week, so be sure to listen and subscribe!


It's the Eric Rosenblum birthday edition of the Coming Up Short podcast! Today, Jon Levine helps celebrate Eric's (21st? 37th? 49th? How old is that kid?) birthday along with our guest, Darius Culpepper.

Darius rolls in to the Chula Vista Studios Facebooking Live the whole time with his driver, Fasil Malik, and knocks out one heck (gotta use that word for Darius's sake) of an episode. In between Darius's five million shout-outs, we learn about how his comedy started, where it's been, and definitely where it's going.

It's an awesome episode and it's Eric's birthday, so you have to listen (and subscribe!).
