Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome the Rip Van Winkle of the local comedy scene, Kevin Javier, to the Coming Up Short podcast. The self described ‘sweatiest hands in comedy’ talks about his start and rise in the South Florida comedy scene over the last several years and how he’s gone from a hardcore, heavy-metal comedian to type he is today. The three also talk about Kevin’s ‘day job’ of educating America’s youth and the fact that they still use A/V carts to this day.
To round out the show, the trio discuss Coming Up Short’s Standup Spotlight of the Week, the man in black himself, Brian Coronado.

Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine are back in the Chula Vista studios for another edition of the Coming Up Short podcast and today we have a big in-studio guest, both literally and figuratively. Jonathan Cardenas or, as he’s better known as, Phat Chopz joins us for this week’s episode and boy is it a good one.
The three discuss the Homefield Comedy Club and how it’s risen to be one of the premier comedy destinations in South Florida. We also talk about Phat Chopz beginnings and how he got his comedy start. It’s gets real when Chopz delves into his inner workings and really opens up to the Coming Up Short audience.

Coming Up Short is back in full force as Eric Rosenblum returns from his New York City trip to join Jon Levine in the Chula Vista Studios. The pair welcome this week’s in-studio guest, South Florida scene favorite Ralph LaGuerre.
The three talk about Ralph’s beginnings in comedy and his fight not to be typecast as a certain type of comedian. Also discussed are Eric’s trip to NYC, Jon’s comedy contest hot streak, and finding yourself in a conversation when someone casual drops the n-word, but shouldn’t have.
Finally, the three turn their attention to the Standup Spotlight of the Week, Artistic Vibes and Homefield Comedy Club host Xander Rey.

It's the Fourth of July edition on the Coming Up Short podcast. Eric Rosenblum took the weekend off and headed to NYC leaving Jon Levine alone with not one, but two in-studio guests. A first for Coming Up Short not only having two guests, but also because these guests are a comedy couple. Jon talks to Rachel Blavatnik and John Hyne about how they got into comedy and what it's like to be dating a fellow comedian. And, of course, I ask if the sex is funny.
The three also discuss the Fourth of July BBQ that's about to take place at Jon's house and expected shape the house will be in after having 18 local standup comedians come over, get drunk and play with matches. The three also discuss Jon's recent win at the Homefield Comedy Contest.
