MEET HERSH REPHUN

 

With dual chops in comedy and advertising, Hersh Rephun has enjoyed an eclectic career spanning two decades as a message therapist, and as a standup comedian playing gigs across the country. Empathy and accessibility are the hallmarks of his work. He hosts the popular Truth Tastes Funny podcast (ranked in the top 5% of podcasts globally, according to ListenNotes), seeking survival tips for a chaotic world, and is following it up with YES, BRAND, helping Founders and CEOs tackle branding challenges with humor and humanity.

Hersh maintains that a brand’s voice should translate across all of its communications, internal and external. He came to this conclusion after leading teams in PR, Creative, Brand Strategy, Global Partner & Franchisee Relations.

His clients include changemakers, market leaders, agencies, institutions, production companies, and Oscar-winning filmmakers. As a brand storyteller, he operates on one simple principle: sell the truth. 

In 2021, having guided clients and colleagues in a host of social action campaigns, Hersh and Isack Fadlon formally launched The KOSHER Brand, a streetwear brand committed to goodwill, inclusion, and equity.

Here’s the difference between a punchline and a tagline:
A punchline might be, ‘The great thing about Imodium is that
no matter how badly my day goes, at least I won’t sh*t my pants.’
A tagline is more like, ‘Are you gonna sh*t your pants today?
Depends.’
