UTG TV: Jim Florentine Talks Stand-Up, Metal, And Podcasting

At the end of the day, Jim Florentine defines himself as a stand-up comic.

When UTG TV sat down with Jim Florentine at Governor’s Comedy Club in New York, we immediately implied that he was a very busy man. Although his sarcastic rebuttal of “eh, not really,” demonstrated his chop-busting abilities, we didn’t really buy it.

Florentine is a seasoned comic with a wealth of history in the realm of making people laugh. Currently, he hosts a weekly podcast called Comedy Metal Midgets which has a committed following. He also hosts the similarly titled radio show Metal Midgets on the …

Whether or not you’re into music as heavy or intense as Between the Buried and Me, you must recognize and respect the band’s level of success and achievements. The members’ ability to play their instruments is unrivaled by many of today’s metal and progressive artists. Consequently, BTBAM may be the only band …

Everyone, please hold in your milk, this interview is about to get wild. Well, I take that back.

It seems as though when Norma Jean‘s vocalist Corey Brandan isn’t chugging milk to the point of projectile vomiting, he’s actually a pretty laid back guy.

The band just wrapped up a tour with KEN mode, The Greenery, Vanna, and more. When the package came through Revolution in Amityville, NY, Under The Gun Review had to show up. Luckily, UTG TV sat down (once again in the freezing cold) to talk to Corey about the band’s latest …
