We're marking a monumental occasion here on the Coming Up Short podcast as Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome in longtime listener and supporter of the podcast Franco Harris to the Chula Vista Studios. Franco's desire to be on the show has been a long known, but due to a miscommunication, it hadn't happened until now.

The three, well four actually (Sarah, Franco's (much) better half joined us in studio), talk about lots of topics from how good the scene truly is down here in South Florida, why it's important to 'fake it till you make it', how it's possible that Dylan Starr is dating my ex-girlfriend, and how Jacky B's... ahem... pleasant personality is not a new phenomena.

Lots gets touched on and it's a great show. Listen and subscribe!


The Coming Up Short podcast has hit the three-quarters-of-a-century mark this week with its 75th episode! As a special treat to mark this occasion, Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine brought in a guest from over two hours away to appear on the show. We'd like to think it was this far distance that caused Phillip Isme to be late, but I think we all know the truth.

Not only did Phillip talk dynamically about his start and career in comedy, but also about what it's like to be a comedian in a place with few opportunities. He really opens up to Jon and Eric about his goals and fears of what might be in store for him in the future. We're also introduced to our guest's guest, as the lovely Ashely joined us for the show.

Listen, subscribe, and enjoy!


If someone would've told me that the next guest on the Coming Up Short podcast was going to be a former toothless and gender-ambiguous comedian who's life peaked in the fifth grade, I would have said they were lying. But, that's exactly what Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine got for this week's episode of Coming Up Short.

Jon and Eric welcome Regina Castaneda into the Chula Vista Studios and neither of them had any idea what they were in store for. The self-proclaimed croqueta connoisseur not only explains the difference between the different types of croqueta fillings, but also about her formative years playing the roles of men on stage, including the fake beards.

You wouldn't believe it unless you heard it. Listen and subscribe.


The Coming Up Short podcast is switching from short and fat (in my case) to tall and skinny for this, our Fourth of July episode. Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine welcome this week's guest Jesse Thompson to the Chula Vista Studios and, as it turns out, Jesse lives right around the block (literally).

Jesse, Eric, and Jon get right to it and start with a discussion about the recent show at the Inkwell Pub that Jon and Jesse were a part of. From that, the two jump into Jesse's dry-spell streaks, which he talks about on stage, and how legitimate they actually are.

Finally, the three wrap up the episode with talk of what's coming up next for both Jesse and the Coming Up Short crew.
