Coming Up Short #87 - The Final Episode - Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine
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.

Coming Up Short #86 - Kel Thompson, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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!

Coming Up Short #85 - Jeff Anderson, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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. Enjoy!

Coming Up Short #84 - Joseph Richard Nay, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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. Enjoy!

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!

Coming Up Short #81 - David Del Rosario, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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!

Coming Up Short #76 - Franco Harris, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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!

Coming Up Short #75 - Phillip Isme, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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!

Coming Up Short #74 - Regina Castaneda, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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.

Coming Up Short #73 - Jesse Thompson, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine
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. The Coming Up Short podcast team hopes that everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day and asks you to click that subscribe link so you never miss an episode!

Coming Up Short #72 - Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine
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. Listen to this great episode and subscribe so that you don't miss any in the future.

Coming Up Short #71 - Stacey Steele, Carl Rimi, Eric Rosenblum, and Jon Levine

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!

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. Listen, subscribe and enjoy.

The topics discussed on the podcast range from Mike's start as a cruise-ship comedian, to his current stint as the comedy teacher at the Fort Lauderdale Improv's comedy class.
