    EP 9 - Aparna Nancherla, the Bad Girl of Comedy, is Here to Help!

    EP 9 - Aparna Nancherla, the Bad Girl of Comedy, is Here to Help!

    I love Aparna, and I’m far from alone. Her hilarious stage presence, her incredible acting work, and her peerless writing (no one is better at Twitter) have earned her fans from all walks of life. She and I met doing comedy in the waiting area of Walter Reed Hospital ten-odd years ago, and we’ve been friends ever since. THE CALLS: 1) Chris is running out of cooking ideas, can you help??, 2) A woodpecker is living in the corner a guy’s house. How to get rid of it? (Side note: WTF??), and 3) A caller hasn’t been in a relationship for a long time and isn’t sure he wants one. Is that okay? Listen in to hear our genius answers!

    EP 8 - Dave Holmes is here to help you with your galumphing masculinity!

    EP 8 - Dave Holmes is here to help you with your galumphing masculinity!

    Dave Holmes is an old friend of mine, even though we’re both very young men. His partner Ben is an old friend too, and he’s done all of my theme songs (specials, all podcasts), but I digress. Dave and I can’t figure out when we met, because we’re just that tight. He has an interesting history, some of which you might know, but an even more interesting outlook and brain. I’m glad he could join me to help! CALLS: 1) Annie’s dad refuses to wash his hands in airports because they’ll “make his hands even dirtier.” Also, he’s using airports!! 2) A guy broke up with his lady, “and it hurts like a motherfucker,” 3) What’s good to cook on the grill? An eternal classic!

    EP 7 - Michelle Buteau thinks you should get freaky when you need to!

    EP 7 - Michelle Buteau thinks you should get freaky when you need to!

    Michelle Buteau has a Netflix special AND a book on the way, is raising baby twins (a girl and a boy), and has a husband who makes her cocktails. She. Is. Winning. However, she went through a lot to get where she is, and it’s never been easy being a woman of color in America. We get into it on this episode, and Michele uses her wisdom and hilarious point of view to help out our callers. CALLS: 1) Marcus is heavier than he should be, according to others, but doesn’t really want to. 2) An almost divorced woman wants to get freaky with someone. Is that wrong?, and 3) Ethan from Southern California has lost his two best friends to each other and doesn’t know how to deal. Listen in to the problems of strangers with us!

    EP 6 - David G’Borie is Here to Help Everybody Except Confused and Needy White People

    EP 6 - David G’Borie is Here to Help Everybody Except Confused and Needy White People

    David G’Borie isn’t here to help white friends figure out what to do, he’s here for the comedy. David hasn’t had the easiest life, but he’s really easy to be around, and he makes me laugh really hard. We know each other from the comedy festival circuit, and over the past few years he’s found real success both on screen and as the official voice of Comedy Central. CALLS: 1) A man did some trolling online (for good reasons (?)) and lost his job. Is that fair?, 2) Megan wants to know how to get out into the dating scene during these quarantine times, 3) A nice lady has super judgmental friends. Should she tell them to shove it? Listen now and see what we think!

    A 4th of July 3-Pack of Helpful Tallboys

    A 4th of July 3-Pack of Helpful Tallboys

    Hey Helpers, this week we thought we’d do something special: Take the week off. Also, because we’re so awesome, we thought we’d do something special for you. Here are the first three guest-less episodes of “This Might Help” in their entirety. Recorded at the beginning of the America pandemic (and before I knew what the hell Zoom even was) these three episodes show how people were feeling back then, and why there’s still reason to keep hope alive and laugh. My plan for “This Might Help” was to have a guest every time, so I wasn’t sure what to do with these, but I’d like our callers’ voices to be heard, and the funny things I said back to not be wasted. Enjoy, and be safe this week. Call Matt at: 323-763-0228 New episodes every Thursday Follow @Braunger www.thismighthelppodcast.com Interested in advertising? Email advertise@thelaughbutton.com

    EP 4 - Arlo Weierhauser

    EP 4 - Arlo Weierhauser

    Arlo and I had a fantastic lunch right before the lockdown where I told them my wife was pregnant and they told me they were taking a new non-binary name: Arlo. For the last ten years or so I’ve known Arlo as Caitlin, one of the funniest people to ever come out of The Portland, Oregon comedy scene, and now they’re Arlo. Congrats pal! Check out their set on Colbert recently, it’s bananas funny. I love Arlo, or as they call themselves, “Coach.” CALLS: 1) Annie has an overbearing boss who wants her to now work on weekends doing non-work-related chores, 2) a woman working from home has a co-worker who takes her phone into the bathroom during Zoom calls, and 3) A man dating a porn stars wonders how to tell his family about it. Yowza! Coach, help! Call Matt at: 323-763-0228 New episodes every Thursday Follow @Braunger www.thismighthelppodcast.com Interested in advertising? Email advertise@thelaughbutton.com
