Bronston Jones: Life’s Short

I’m Not!

“Life’s short—I’m not!” isn't 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 a 5-year hiatus directing commercials, Bronston’s back at the mic doing what he loves most—Saying Something without Selling Anything. From coast to coast, he revels in revealing his failings and through his conversational, story-telling style reveals failings we all share while talking about the demented Reality Show called REALITY.

Bronston has rocked comedy clubs and opened for rock bands. He's hosted somber charity events that turned crazy-sexy-fun. He’s done standup for Rooftop Comedy and ComedyTime Network, is a regular on radio’s The DAMage Report and acted in TruTV’s “All Worked Up” and charity spots for UNF--KTHEGULF, plus commercials for Nike, Found Magazine and other things he’d never buy.

Bronston is co-creator and host of Venice Underground Comedy, fast becoming one of LA’s best shows. Honoring the eclectic, subversive and dangerous vibe of Venice, the show brings Truthful comedians into the basement at the beach. He’s introduced Eddie Ifft, Neal Brennan, Rick Shapiro, Eddie Pepitone, Ian Edwards, Amy Dresner and more of comedy’s best underground talent to a very discerning audience with a low tolerance for BS.

Bronston has produced or directed 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 wrote/directed award-winning festival darling "MaxiDoodles," which skewered the commercial biz—then generated more ad work. Irony is awesome! He also production managed David Brenner, Sandra Bernhard and Jerry Seinfeld HBO specials. Jerry’s opened with a funeral for his old material: Carlin, King, Leifer, Leno, McMahon, Larry Miller, Reiser, Shandling and Wallace were there! Bronston was too (in the production moho, but there)—inspiring! And perhaps why much of his material deals with death or celebrating life!
