Bronston Jones’ motto, mantra and podcast is “Life’s Short. I’m Not!” What was once a silly pun based on his freakishly tall 6’7″ frame, has now turned into deep conversations with people who inspire him.

“Life’s short. I’m not!” is more than just a pun for this 6’7”, 225 lb, hairy giant; it’s his motto, mantra and mission statement, meaning “Tall or small, LIVE LARGER THAN LIFE!” After leasing his soul to advertising for several years, Bronston’s back at the mic doing what he loves most — Saying Something without Selling Anything.
LA Weekly called him “certifiably unique.” Bronston says it as he sees it, pulling punchlines from his politics or his pants – not politicians pants – he’s not filthy.
Bronston’s first CD, “She Has to Take This Call” was recorded at his home show Venice Underground Comedy. Bronston and Matt Devlin started VenUground in 2011. It quickly became one of LA’s top stand-up shows (LA Weekly: Best of LA 2012). Each week, a SRO crowd fills an historic Prohibition Speakeasy to laugh. VenUground has hosted Bill Burr, Bryan Callen, Jay Oakerson, Bret Ernst, Jim Jefferies, Eddie Ifft, Greg Fitzsimmons, Hannibal Buress, Jerrod Carmichael, Eleanor Kerrigan, Ian Edwards and 100s more.
For the last five years, Bronston performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world’s largest arts festival in Scotland. He’s toured many of the UK’s top clubs. Bronston’s stand-up has been featured on Rooftop Comedy and ComedyTimeTV. He’s acted in TruTV’s “All Worked Up,” charity spots for UNF–KTHEGULF, plus commercials for Nike, Telenet and other things he’d never buy. Bronston is a guest on numerous radio shows & podcasts, and he sometimes blogs for Huffington Post Comedy.
Behind the camera, Bronston produced or directed 300+ commercials & music videos. He’s directed Olympians, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Griffin, Tommy Lee, NASCAR drivers and NFL All-Stars. Bronston directed Uncle Kracker’s Top 20 video “Drift Away.” He wrote and directed the award-winning short “MaxiDoodles,” which skewered the ad biz—then generated even more commercial work. Irony is awesome! Bronston produced the NYC shoot for the feature film “W.E.” directed by Madonna. 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!
