This is a fun show that is not only heavy on the travel stories but we spend equal amount of time talking stand up comedy, and learning about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from an expert.
About Bronston: He’s played many of the top clubs in US and UK. Bronston’s stand-up has been featured on Rooftop Comedy and ComedyTimeTV. He portrayed a Bad Egg in a funny animal rights ad for Australia. He riffed randy reasons to raise money for oil spill clean up for UNF–KTHEGULF. He’s been on TruTV’s “All Worked Up,”plus commercials for Nike, Telenet and other things he’d never buy. Bronston guests on numerous podcasts and previously blogged for HuffPost Comedy.
Behind the camera, Bronston produced or directed 300+ commercials & music videos. He’s directed Whoopi Goldberg, Tommy Lee, Olympians, NASCAR drivers and NFL All-Stars. Bronston directed the Top 20 Uncle Kracker “Drift Away” video. He wrote and directed the award-winning short “MaxiDoodles,” which skewered the ad biz—garnering even more ad work. Irony is awesome! Bronston produced the NYC shoot for Madonna directed feature film “W.E.” He production managed HBO specials for David Brenner, Sandra Bernhard and Jerry Seinfeld. Jerry’s opened with a funeral for his retired material: Carlin, King, Leifer, Leno, McMahon, Reiser, Shandling, Wallace and Larry Miller were there! Bronston too (well, in production moho) — inspiring! And perhaps why much of his material deals with death… Or celebrating this short but amazing life! Listen to hear more about his amazing life.
