Ep 50 – Mara Wilson is Here to Help, Especially if Your Name is Matt!
An episode of This Might Help with Matt Braunger
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).
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.
