Ep 39 – Tom Thakkar Loves Dumb Stuff, and Helping!
An episode of This Might Help with Matt Braunger
As I mention on the show, Tom was once mentioned in a review of a show I did as having a better set than mine. Do we get into it? Oh yeah. And, it turns out better than you thought. I’ve known Tom for many years, and he’s always been a fun comic to watch and a good friend/drinking buddy to have. We talked about keeping perspective during this horrible time for live comedy, dealing with drunk audience members, relationships, the Midwest, and lots of other distracting, non-important topics to help fill your day with fun.
1) Tom has a podcast called “Stand by Your Band,” where he and a guest defend their ‘guilty pleasure’ musical acts. Caller asks, “What are yours?”
2) A fella got drunk and cheated on his wife of ten years. He’s now in AA and taking steps to repair the damage done. He asks, “How can things go back to normal?”
3) A singer/comedian asks, “How can you tell what people want to laugh at when you can’t do live shows?” Listen for our wise, and very stupid answers. Like, subscribe, and be proud. You’re a Mighty!
