“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. Bronston is developing a following in the UK. He’s spent the last three summers doing Edinburgh Fringe, where he garnered four and five star reviews. He’s played some of 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!

Neil Rubenstein doesn’t do drugs. He’s never had a sip of alcohol. So it may come as a bit of a surprise when the Long Island comedian references past occupations like owning a brothel or running an illegal poker room. It’s a dynamic that makes Neil both incredibly interesting and incredibly funny – something that served him well when his role on a Spike TV show as a gambling expert introduced him to the world of stand-up comedy. Stand up was more than an outlet – it straightened out his life. “I accidentally became a good role model,” Neil Rubenstein says. Neil doesn’t shy away from discussing his former life of crime. Though he credits comedy with in some ways saving his life, his past experiences inform his understanding and his art. They also inform his work ethic. “I can’t just play cards, I had to run a poker room,” Neil says, by way of explanation. It’s an ethic he brings to his comedy: a dedication to doing something to the utmost degree. “I couldn’t just do stand up, I had to quit my job and focus everything on the craft.” His dedication and humor have earned him accolades including runner up in 2017 Long Island Laugh Off and the Main Event of The World Series of Comedy. “Neil’s a burly, tattooed guy who plays against type; kind, cerebral, but still casually mentions past illegal activities the way I might reference a Renaissance Lit course I took in college,” Joe Devito, famous comedian, said about Neil’s show. It’s a show you won’t want to miss.
