The meaning behind "Life's Short, I'm Not!" is to live as large as you can in the brief amount of time you have, this guest should inspire you to do just that.
Bronston talks to comedian Quincy Jones who is wringing as much life out of life as he can. Last August, at just 32 years old, Quincy was diagnosed with Mesothelioma which is a rare form of cancer. He was told that it was terminal. He was told he only had a year to live.
What would you do if you only had a year to live?
Quincy dedicated himself deeper the art of stand up comedy. He decided he wanted to leave a legacy behind by taping a stand up special. He tapes that special tomorrow night (April 4) at LA's Teragram Ballroom for HBO!
Let him inspire you.
For second episode of "Life's Short. I'm Not!" Bronston talks to good friend, inspiration and legend of comedy, Tom Rhodes!!!
Tom Rhodes has done stand up for more than three decades. He is a legend in comedy, a master of the art. He had an NBC show in the 1990s, Mr. Rhodes. Tom hosted a late night show in Amsterdam. Most important to Bronston, he packed all his belongings into a storage unit and travelled all over the world telling jokes for 10 years. His podcast "Tom Rhodes Radio" and weekly video series "Knowledge Nuggets" are amazing.
Recently, Tom resettled back in the States. He's back in Los Angeles, CA, and Bronston visited him in his home.
Thank you, Tom Rhodes! I'm proud to call you a friend.
Thank you for everyone listening.

For the first episode of "Life's Short. I'm Not!" Bronston talks to good friends and true inspiration, Mr. DEAN DELRAY!
Dean was Bronston's absolute first choice for First Guest for many reasons:
1 - Dean Delray started stand up six years ago. Already he's headlining comedy clubs nationwide and opening theater shows for Bill Burr and Marc Maron. How did he do it so fast? Bronston asks.
2 - Before comedy, Dean toured the world as a singer/songwriter for 25 years. Hint, Hint: 25 years onstage is 25 years onstage. Plus promoting bands and promoting comics are very similar... Hard work.
3 - Dean also hosts an amazing podcast "Let There Be Talk" on AllThingsComedy.com where he talks to musicians, comedians and interesting people about their art, life and whatever else comes up. His podcast inspired what you are listening to now.
4 - Besides comedy and career advice, Dean gives Bronston some great life advice. Listen in. Take what you will. This is good good good good stuff.
Thank you, Dean Delray. Thank you, anyone listening.
