    Josh Denny the Internet’s MOST Cancelled Comedian

    Josh Denny the Internet’s MOST Cancelled Comedian

    In this episode, we talk with Josh Denny, who has spent the last decade traveling the country, enjoying a passionate love affair with food and serving up heaping portions of funny as a stand-up comedian. Originally from Philadelphia, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Josh's lifelong trip across our nation has armed him with a vast knowledge of what makes you smile, whether it be with a clever comedic observation, or dropping knowledge on the best eats in the country. 
    Josh kicked off his comedy career by winning Crown Royal’s 2008 “midwest’s next big comic contest,” and has since released two hour-long stand-up comedy albums, including 2008's "honest brutality" and 2012's "social hand grenades" to warm reviews. 
    Josh has been a lightning rod for saying what he thinks, something missing in today's society, and particularly refreshing. Why you may not like what he says, and some of his jokes may make you cringe, he has every right to say it, and he does not hold back. 
    While I wanted to hear some of Josh's backstory, along with stories from his time on television as host of the Food Channels "Ginormous Food", to his ideas on the country and politics, what I was really interested in was talking about business. Josh has unique insight into one of the hardest businesses to own and operate, restaurants. His insight on what it takes, the people who do it, and their dedication, hard work, and fervent desire to produce the best quality possible are inspiring. 
    I enjoyed the conversation, and I hope you do also.

    Losers Care About the Little Things! Don’t Be a Loser.

    In this episode, we talk about our initial reactions to seeing someone park terribly. We talk about being aggressive, where it's needed and appropriate, and where it's not. Finally, we finish talking about one of the best movies Jerry has seen all year and movie theaters in general.
    All of that and more on this episode of The Jerry Brazie Podcast. So check it out and hear some unfiltered insight from someone who comes from nothing, who had made it big, and is talking about it in an unfiltered and honest way.

    #255 - I Can See the Cowards, What Happened to the Heroes?

    #255 - I Can See the Cowards, What Happened to the Heroes?

    This is as raw and uncensored as I can be. Some will like it, and many will hate it, but that should be the nature of discourse. Some will never listen again, and some will appreciate it, either way, I respect that. This is my truth relative to the latest school shooting. The killing in Uvalde, Texas was horrifying, there is no comparison. Setting that aside, the behavior of the police is an unquestionable act of cowardice not seen since…the last school shooting, nightclub shooting, or any other shooting where cops stood outside while people were murdered.
    In this podcast, we talk about cowards, heroes, and the outright attack on masculinity in the west. The ramifications on men are only now being felt, and it will only get worse, and society will pay a heavy toll. The lies, obfuscation, and the unending amount of “thin blue line” butt-covering, over the bodies of 18 babies and two teachers, is disgusting.
    It’s time ALL cops step up and provide the service they commit to when they are sworn in. And as a society, we need to respect the police, and the police in turn need to work hard to EARN that respect. I have some strong opinions on this subject, ones that many people won’t like, fortunately, they can simply stop listening. I hope you enjoy the most important Podcast I have ever done.

    Taking Responsibility for Everything

    In this episode, we talk about taking responsibility for everything. Your own elements, your actions, and even the actions of others when it comes to business.
