Jeremiah also tells Briana and Josh about his time at Yale, his Professional basketball career in Israel, and what the world looks like when you are 6'10.

From being party to the biggest party-fraternity at the University of Buffalo (ΣAM), to forging his way through the brutal landscape of Hollywood, actor/producer/writer Jack Zullo is always going at high ‘Octane’ speeds. UB is where he met Josh, providing Jack big belly laughs, and ever since Jack has provided Josh great perspective on the grueling acting industry. Now Jack is back home in New York getting ready to launch his Off-Broadway, live, tribute-show to comedy legend John Belushi, premiering at St. Marks’ Theater 80 this December 2019. He’s researched, he’s written and now Jack will once again embody the legendary tour-de-force comedian that was Belushi (aka John “Bluto” Blutarsky, aka the Samurai Futaba, aka Jake Blues). And to such rave reviews in LA that even John’s brother James (Jim) snuck into a show and was blown away. Get ready NYC! “With a Little Help…It’s John Belushi” is about to be something that this Brother Blues you away with, too!
