Edinburgh Fringe 2012
★★★★★ Chronicles of a Nerd
“3 to See” ThreeWeeks
“a certifiably unique East Coaster.”

“Life’s short—I’m not!” is more than just a pun for this 6’7″, 240lb, hairy giant; it’s his motto, mantra and mission statement, meaning “Tall or small, LIVE LARGER THAN LIFE!” So after leasing his soul to advertising for a while, Bronston’s back at the mic doing what he loves most—Saying Something without Selling Anything. Bronston tells it like he sees it, and he’s just as comfortable pulling punchlines from his politics as he is from his pants… or politicians pants.
Bronston just returned from his first Edinburgh Fringe, where he garnered a 5-star review for his solo hour, plus 4-stars co-hosting the LOLympics Live.
Bronston created and hosts one of LA’s hottest shows, Venice Underground Comedy (LA Weekly 2012 Best of LA), which honors the eclectic, subversive and dangerous vibe of Venice by bringing TRUTHful comedians into a historic Speakeasy beachside basement. He’s introduced Bret Ernst, Jim Jefferies, Eddie Ifft, Hannibal Buress, Neal Brennan, Rick Shapiro, Eddie Pepitone, Ian Edwards, Amy Dresner and more of comedy’s best.
Bronston’s done standup for Rooftop Comedy and ComedyTimeTV. He’s acted in TruTV’s “All Worked Up,” charity spots for UNF–KTHEGULF, plus commercials for Nike, Found Magazine and other things he’d never buy. He’s guested on numerous radio programs and podcasts and blogs for Huffington Post Comedy.
Behind the camera, Bronston directed or produced 200+ commercials, promos & music videos. He directed Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Griffin and Tommy Lee, plus stars of the NFL, Olympics and NASCAR. He directed Uncle Kracker’s Top 20 “Drift Away” and as well as award-winning festival darling “MaxiDoodles,” which skewered the commercial biz—then generated more ad work. Irony is awesome! He also 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 was too (in the production moho, but there)—inspiring! And perhaps why much of his material deals with death… Or celebrating this short but giant life!
