EP 31 – Blaine Capatch is Blaming the Shrimp for His Hangover, but Helping!
An episode of This Might Help with Matt Braunger
Blaine Capatch is a friend, but also a comedy idol of mine. I know that sounds like a lot, but he’s one of those comedians whose writing and silly delivery I’ve looked up to for a very, very long time. He started out in the San Francisco comedy scene of the 90s with people like Patton Oswalt and Dana Gould, and since then he’s written on roughly 5 million television shows. When I was a guest on @Midnight on Comedy Central, I would always ask to get Blaine as the comedy writer I would bounce my jokes off of before we taped (and a LOT of funny people wrote on that show (RIP)). We had a great time, and it was nice to see he hasn’t lost his mind during Covid (any more than it was already gone).
1) When caller Evan has people over for dinner, if anything (even the smallest thing) goes wrong, he is devastated. How to cope with his own brutal self-criticism?
2) A man’s mom has decimated his high scores on a mutually loved video game. It wasn’t a big deal, but she keeps bragging about it. Is it cool to destroy your mom’s scores and brag right back?
3) A nice lady and her husband are big fans of the show, and he’s started taking care of his drinking problem and now goes to therapy. What are my and Blaine’s thoughts on getting ahold of one’s alcohol abuse (and secret drinking)?
Listen, like, subscribe, but most of all don’t go hang out in groups. Instead, binge “This Might Help” eps and spread the good word! Thanks, Mightys!
