    Kurt Braunohler Helps, and Drinks!

    Kurt Braunohler Helps, and Drinks!

    Kurt Braunohler and I have been friends since, what, 2006 I’d say? We ran around NYC and Los Angeles, drinking and doing comedy, as well as in several festivals. What always struck me was that he was adventurous to a fault. Like, he was always down for a good time and to explore. I think that’s what made him a great dad. He now has two daughters, I have one, and we have a wife each. What a country! Kurt took some time out from his busy schedule of doing his podcast Bananas and raising two kids to help out three Mightys.
    THE CALLS:
    1) A nice lady has a landlord who wants to CUT HER APARTMENT IN HALF to make two units, and is mad that she’s pushing back. What to do?
    2) Another nice lady DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO ADULT! Help!
    3) A nice fella with a BROKEN ANKLE has two kids to watch alone! Listen to hear his ask, because I didn’t guess it correctly and Kurt did. Enjoy, my Mightys!

    Wayne Federman Stands Up to Help!

    Wayne Federman Stands Up to Help!

    Wayne is one of those guys I’ve looked up to for a long time, and a great example of positive reinvention. They say “Do what you love,” and he’s certainly done that with stand-up. What they should also say is “Study the history of what you love.” Wayne has a podcast, and now a book, called “The History of Standup.” We talked about the art, how it’s affected our lives, the history, and even my old scene full of bozos back in Chicago. Wayne is so fun. Great episode!
    THE CALLS:
    1) Recently coming out as trans, our first caller asks: WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO GET INTO IMPROV?
    2) A lady’s been “dateless for three years,” and doesn’t want to go online. HOW TO MEET A NICE FELLA?
    3) A young guy is sick of his career. HOW TO FIND A NEW JOB POST-PANDEMIC? Listen, like, subscribem, and judge! Thanks, Mightys!

    Megan Galley is Helping by Being Real (and Judgemental)!

    Megan Galley is Helping by Being Real (and Judgemental)!

    Megan Galley is a comedian who grew up in Indiana, went on to do comedy in Chicago, and since then has been on Comedy Central and Conan. She’s also a hilarious maniac, in the best possible sense. My time in Chicago ended well before she moved there, but I heard from friends how funny she was after I left. We became friends through doing shows and having come from the same scene, but this is the longest convo we’ve had, and you get to hear it! Megan is a goddamn stitch, and way more real than most of the folks I’ve met in my life. PERFECT for TMH.
    THE CALLS:
    1) Cathy wants to know, WHO SHOULD MAKE THE BED? The person who gets up first? RIGHT??
    2) Jeremiah wants to know, how do you get the other people in your group to do your sketches when they won’t?
    3) A VERY DARK CALL (listen to understand)(thank God a ray of sunshine like Megan was on to help!). Listen, like, subscribe. Love you, Mightys!

    Laraine Newman, the Goddess Herself, Flies in to Help!

    Laraine Newman, the Goddess Herself, Flies in to Help!

    What can I say about Laraine that hasn’t been said? Hilarious, kind, legendary, seen it all, done it all, is somehow friends with Matt Braunger, the list goes on and on. She’s also a mother to two grown kids who are also talented performers. When we first met we hit it off immediately, and it was like talking to an old friend. It was strange and fantastic, seeing as I vividly remember laughing at her sketches with my mom when I was barely able to walk (not because I was drunk, because I was a little boy). Her new book “May You Live in Interesting Times” is out now on Audible, full of her amazing stories and wisdom.
    THE CALLS:
    1) Rob is wondering, SHOULD HE DO A PODCAST (uh oh) about hip-hop with his best friend (ok maybe)? Also, how does he GET HIS FRIEND TO SAY YES? (!!)
    2) Stacey from Florida’s ex-husband hangs out WAY TOO LONG after he drops off the kids. What to do?
    3) Em the Gen X-er A) DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO TEXT OR TEXT-FLIRT, and B) Talks too loud. Help! Listen for the answers and give your own.
    Thanks, Mightys!

    Jenny Yang is Here to Help Your Animal in its Crossing!

    Jenny Yang is Here to Help Your Animal in its Crossing!

    Jenny Yang is what you call a worker. A comedian, fashion icon (according to me and others on the internet), a writer, and creator of one of the most successful covid-era shows in the world: Comedy Crossing. Every week people tune in to watch comedians do comedy in the hugely popular Animal Crossing world. She was one of those comics I didn’t know very well, but now I feel like we’re pals. Especially since we’ve now given dating advice. She was also cool enough to take time out from her first trip post-covid to talk to us. What a class act! THE CALLS:
    1) A fella wants to know how to look and dress ONCE THE WORLD OPENS!
    2) A lady has a hard crush on a co-worker. TELL HIM OR NO?
    3) A dude’s lady refuses to go to couples’ therapy anymore because she says he’s WINNING THERAPY! (??).
    Listen to our advice, call us idiots, then shout out your own. Thanks, Mightys!

    Mara Wilson is Here to Help, Especially if Your Name is Matt!

    Mara Wilson is Here to Help, Especially if Your Name is Matt!

    Mara Wilson has lived a few lives. A former child star (Mrs. Doubtfire, Matilda, Miracle on 34th Street), she’s now writer, mental health advocate, and fellow funny person. I’d never met her personally, but we were fans of each other online. So when Josh Gondelman recommended her I jumped at the idea, even though Josh does so much coke he doesn’t know which was is up (Ed note: He doesn’t do coke, never has). She was a dream. Funny, thoughtful, and insightful for all three callers whose names were Matt (Ed note #2: Only two of them were Matts, which was still weird).
    THE CALLS:
    1) Matt #1 got into a fight with his girlfriend, who was kind of a loudmouth at dinner in front of their friends. His fault?
    2) Matt #2 is 37, went to art school, and feels left behind by life and his more successful friends. True or no?
    3) A non-Matt (thank GOD) whom is a lady saw me in Chicago and I didn’t get mad when someone told me to move the moment before I got onstage. When do you know to be nice or not as a performer?
    Thanks, Mightys! And enjoy.
