Coming Up Short #16

Welcome to our Sweet 16! To celebrate 16 episodes of Coming Up Short, Jon Levine and Eric Rosenblum welcome in to the Chula Vista Studios a man that is very near and dear to the hearts of many comedians in South Florida, Will Watkins! Not only that, but this is our first hour-long episode. It was packed with so much good content, 30 minutes just didn’t do it justice.

Will, Eric and Jon talk about making the transition from being a comedian in South Florida to one in New York City, what it feels like to get 45 seconds of stage time, phrases that Eric has never heard and Will’s dislike of easy left turns. He also throws in the McDonalds’ jingle. 

The three also talk about our Standup Spotlight of the week, Chris Topher! 

This is one episode you don’t want to miss. Check it out!

Coming Up Short #15

Our 15th episode! Jon Levine and Eric Rosenblum can't believe that it's been nearly four months since the podcast started. It's come a long way!

In this episode we talk about Eric's upcoming show at the Funky Buddha with headliner Wendi Starling, Jon's TV commercial shoot, why it's important to structure your jokes properly (even if they don't look like they are) and why Jon gives Eric hope as he gets older. 
We also take the time to focus our Standup Spotlight on show creator, booker, host and comedian extraordinaire Michael Cintron.

Coming Up Short #14

The Chula Vista studios are brimming with life as Eric and Jon interviewed this week’s guest, Ethan Moore. The three discuss the Ultimate Miami Comedy Contest, Jon's recent trip to Orlando, how to properly pronounce Aw Ana Kava, where Ethan has a Monday night room, and other podcasts about German boardgames. 

Our Standup Spotlight of the week just also happens to be a birthday girl today. Pam Bruno has been lighting up stages throughout South Florida including a hugely successful gig at the Broward Center for the Performing arts.

Coming Up Short #13

Eric and Jon are back in the Chula Vista studios this week talking about a whole lot of things. Eric just got back from a wedding in New York and performed comedy while in the city. Jon has become an ordained minister and now has the ability to marry people (and do baptisms and funerals). The two also discuss some different rooms in Miami including Chris Kane’s Speak Comedy Saturdays.

The Standup Spotlight of the week is a hometown favorite who’s coming back to town in the next few weeks, Will Watkins.
