“Life’s short. I’m not!” is more than just a pun for this 6’7”, 245 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 created the show at the historic Del Monte Speakeasy in July 2011. It quickly became one of LA’s top weekly stand-up events (LA Weekly: Best of LA ’12, Argonaut: Best of Westside ’16, ’17). Each week, SRO crowd of 150 people fills the historic Prohibition Speakeasy to laugh. VenUground has hosted Bill Burr, Bryan Callen, Tom Rhodes, Margaret Cho, Jay Oakerson, Daniel Sloss, Bret Ernst, Jim Jefferies, Greg Fitzsimmons, Hannibal Buress, Eleanor Kerrigan, Ian Edwards and 100s more.
For the past six summers, Bronston performed at Edinburgh Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival based in Scotland. 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!
