    Will Sasso Joins Me for the Final Helping: Episode 100!

    Will Sasso Joins Me for the Final Helping: Episode 100!

    Mightys, we have reached the end. After two years and 100 episodes of Might Have Help-ing, I’ve decided to bring the pod to an end. And you know what? I didn’t tell my guest Will Sasso! Why? Because he would have surely cried. Will is an old friend and someone I’ve always looked up to comedically/performance-wise. He’s also one of those notoriously kind guys you hear about here and there in this Biz-buzzy town, so he was (and is) the ideal final guest. We went long on this one, not because it’s the last episode, but because it was so damn fun. I could talk to Will for hours and hours until he politely but firmly asks me to get off his porch (he lives near me). Listen, enjoy, and thanks for the memories. I sincerely can’t thank everyone who listened, enjoyed, and especially called in, enough. Stay positive, friends, and let’s listen to each other’s problems. It really, really might help.

    Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger are Here to Help!

    Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger are Here to Help!

    This episode I got not one, but two guests who need no introduction. You know Patton from his legendary stand-up-that-led-to-other-insanely-cool-stuff career, and Meredith from her rise from child star to voice and screen actress and writer. What a get! Though Patton and I go way back, I’d only met Meredith once, so this was two of my favorite kinds of shows (in one!): 1) Catching up with an old friend, and 2) Learning about a person I find interesting but don’t know that well. Score! We talked marriage, parenthood, the crazy business of show, offensiveness, and so much more. The calls were epic, we laughed, we did not cry. This episode has it all! Enjoy, my Mightys

    Scott Wampler Is Here To Help!

    Scott Wampler Is Here To Help!

    Scott Wampler is a writer/podcaster/superfan-made-good who I first became aware of on Twitter, the best place to make friends in the world. A funny, self-effacing, yet scathing critic of cinema and fan of low art, the two of us hit it off immediately when I came on his podcast. That podcast? The mega-popular “The Kingcast,” based entirely around the works of Stephen King. On each episode, the guest chooses one of Mr. King’s works to discuss. I’m very proud that I got to talk about the movie Creepshow, one of the best (and most fun) horror movies of all time, when my time came. Scott and I talked about post-covid lockdown life, being true to your mental health by giving yourself space, and (most importantly) canned bread. Yep! You read that right. We had a fun, fun time and you will too. Thanks, Mightys!

    Atsuko Okatsuka is Here to Drop it, and to Help!

    Atsuko Okatsuka is Here to Drop it, and to Help!

    Lately, you might have heard of something called the Drop Challenge. People taking a sexy look towards the camera, then dropping to a “hot squat” (my term) slowly towards the ground. Heck, the cast of SNL did it recently. Well, it was created by today’s guest Atsuko Okatsuka, a gifted, engaging comedian and friend of mine. Atsuko is somebody who comes across as eternally happy and optimistic, but she’s had her share of trauma and strife, both personal and familial. She’s made a series of dance videos online that involve her husband and grandmother, often in public places. If you haven’t seen them, look them up now if you like delightful things. She was a blast to have on, and gave incredible advice to the callers. Check it out, as we drop it. Thanks, Mightys!

    Jonah Ray Rodrigues is Here to Make Fun/Help!

    Jonah Ray Rodrigues is Here to Make Fun/Help!

    Jonah is an old friend from when I first moved to Los Angeles. I’ll never forget driving us both to a brutally s****y show WAY far away from where either of us lived. We both had good sets, mostly because the situation was so insane. For example: The stage was a small wooden box with carpeting stapled to it (!). After sharing such a stage, we had no choice to become lifelong friends. Since then he’s gone on to co-host and produce “The Meltdown” on Comedy Central and has been the new host of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” for a few years now. He even had the sense to stop doing stand-up comedy (or, as I would put it, he graduated lol). I’ve been meaning to have him on for a minute and this episode did not disappoint. In fact, after we taped it, we texted each other throughout the day about how we kept thinking of it. Listen and see why!

    Brian Simpson

    Brian Simpson

    Brian Simpson is a comic I love/hate to follow at my home club, The Comedy Store. He’s deadpan, hilarious, writes great jokes, and is fearless in what he says. I’m MAYBE two or three of those things, so going up after him makes me work (always a good thing for your growth, sometimes not the most fun at the time). We didn’t know each other, but I knew I had to get him on the show. The timing was perfect, as he’s recently gotten a lot of well-earned shine, appearing on Netflix’s “The Stand-Ups” to rave reviews. Brian was a perfect guest for TMH, because he brought a wealth of experience. He was in the army, was homeless for a time, and now makes his living as a stand-up comedian and writer. That, my friends, is what you call perspective! We had a lot of fun on this one, and I learned a lot about my new friend Brian. Thanks, Mightys!

James Adomian + Austin

The James Adomian episode in Austin was the funniest so far. I laughed the entire time, especially the Bernie impression. Love what you’re doing, Matt!
