Like two jilted lovers, Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine rant and rave on this week's edition of the Coming Up Short podcast. The scheduled guest cancelled on the show just two hours before we were set to record and that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Cancellations have happened to Coming Up Short before but, thankfully, not too often. However, it was today's cancellation which seemed like a good opportunity for Jon and Eric to discuss not only how important it is to keep your commitments from a professional standpoint, but how not doing so can negatively impact your comedy career in a serious way.

The two discuss the circumstances under which they each received their first booked gigs and, spoiler alert, it wasn't by not working hard.

We have a two-fer episode of the Coming Up Short podcast this week, meaning you're getting two guests for the price of one. And, because this podcast is free, it's an even better deal!

Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome Stacey Steele and Carl Rimi to the show and boy does the 30 minutes go by quick! Not only are these two accomplished comedians who tour different comedy clubs around the country, but they're both working actors who have appeared in many short films, TV shows and more.

There's even a secret guest in the Chula Vista Studios this week, but she's more like a silent partner. It's a fun show all around so check it out!


Another week, another episode of the Coming Up Short podcast! Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome a very special guest into the Chula Vista Studios for Coming Up Short #70, Jillian Chiappone. Jillian tells us about her long journey from Buffalo, New York down to South Florida and then on to Los Angeles for a career that's included modeling, acting, and now standup comedy.

Jillian spent nights in LA learning from the greats at places like the Comedy Store and the Improv and has taken those lessons and applied them to her own career. The three also talk about how hard it is to find work here in South Florida, especially during the summer, autonomous driving vehicles, and even a little Donald Trump.
