Listen To Us


Recording weekly at the World Famous Comic Strip Live comedy club in Manhattan, NY


Josh and Briana met (150 years ago) while starting their NYC journey's doing standup comedy at The Strip. It was a place to hangout and be funny then, and its our place to hangout and podcast now.

Listen to our theme song "I Quit" by hip-hop artist Doug Ray off his album "The Night Shift"


Episode 4 Guest, Rapper/Lawyer Doug Ray, gifted us his song "I Quit" off his latest album "Night Shift" so we could have some theme music. Now we look cool. Thanks Doug Ray! 

About Us


Jobs Blow with Briana and Josh  sounds pornographic, but like many job descriptions, isn’t what it seems.   

The podcast, recorded weekly at the World Famous Comic Strip Live comedy club on Manhattan's Upper East Side, was born out of the frustrations of being laid off and restless, but was created to bring people together to support one another in a quest for something better. Everyone has their own unique story and we’ll speak to individuals at different points in their journey. From professionals who love their day jobs to dreamers paying their dues to reach a lifelong ambition - come to commiserate and stay to be entertained or inspired. Of course, no conversation would be complete without some tea spilt about crazy on-the-job experiences.  

Perspective & Experience


With over two decades in public relations, events, media, and public relations (again), Briana is still trying to figure things out. While she is doing that, this podcast is an opportunity for her to realize her dream of being in broadcast - but without the sexual harassers and with no budget for big payouts. 

Humor & Inspiration


Josh has been living his dream of being a working actor/comedian for nearly twenty years and there isn't a chance of him slowing down anytime soon. He jumped at the chance to do this podcast because, well, he didn't have anything else going on. That's not true. Josh is currently appearing in the Off-Broadway smash hit and New York Times Critic's Pick production of 

Drunk Shakespeare.
