Ep 60 – Trevor Moore Will Catfish You… to Help!

July 22, 2021

Trevor Moore is probably best known for his work with The Whitest Kids You Know, a hugely popular sketch group who had a TV show and still perform together today. I broke into clubs in New York City opening for them way back in 2007/8, and it was one of the most fun times I’ve ever had. Trevor has gone on to do specials, a talk show, and even a children’s show that he cast me on as a goofy dad. Stick with the talented friends, kids!! This episode went way longer than most, mostly because we kept riffing and cracking each other up, but also because we were catching up after the longest time. Fun!

THE CALLS:

1) A lady HATES her boss, but loves the money. Worth leaving her job??

2) Mark in Florida wants to start a bakery. WHAT SHOULD HE CALL IT?

3) A guy who “just wants to get his thang on… because I’m lonely” wants to meet a girl and NOT GET CATFISHED. HELP, TREVOR!

4) Scooter from Bushwick wants to know if we have any advice on trying acid for the first time. DO WE EVER!! Listen, like, subscribe, and go see me on tour!

Thanks, Mightys!

Ep 59 – Demi Adejuyigbe Helps Four People Instead of Three! Genius!

July 15, 2021

Demi Adejuyigbe and I have at least one thing in common: No one knows how to say our last names. I first learned of Demi back when I was a frequent guest on @Midnight on Comedy Central, when he was a writer and online content-creator for the show. The stuff he makes, especially the musically based-stuff, was so way out and funny it blew me away. We’ve been something like distant friends for a while now, and I always post how it is a travesty that this man does not have his own TV show (he just writes on them). Seriously, google his stuff and watch it. Holy shit, right? This ep was a fun one that’ll make your day fly by. 

THE CALLS: 

1) A lady’s roommate doesn’t want to renew the lease. SHOULD SHE MOVE OUT AND STUDY OVERSEAS?? 

2) Demi’s friend Grace called in to ask: HOW DO YOU REVIEW FRIEND’S WORKS OF ART (tough one!)? 

3) A nursing student working 12-hour shifts asks, how do I not be dead on my feet by the end (tougher one)? 

4) A guy alone in a new town asks, HOW DO I MAKE FRIENDS (the toughest one!)? Thanks, Mightys! Enjoy.

Ep 58 – Left Handed Radio

July 8, 2021

I’d never met these guys, but I’d heard their work and became an instant fan. If you’ve never heard of Left Handed Radio, look it up, and you’re welcome. Doing an episode like this was an absolute joy, because we literally became fast friends as we talked/gave advice. Full disclosure: I was in a hotel room in NYC while we recorded, and it was over 100 degrees outside, so you can hear the sweet relief in my voice from the air conditioning. This ep went a little long, but only because we had a damn blast.

THE CALLS:

1) A nice fella asks the ultimate question: HOW DO YOU DISCOVER YOUR PASSION? Wow.

2) A man’s wife got a bad haircut during the lockdown, and he got a good one. Now she’s mad at him. What to do?

3) A heavy-drinkin’ guy wants to know, how to get a girlfriend, and is it even worth it?

LISTEN, JUDGE, AND SUBSCRIBE! Thanks, Mightys.

Ep 57 – Pete Lee and I are on the Bathroom Wall, Helping!

July 1, 2021

Comedian Pete Lee and I always see each other in the bathroom. The comedy club bathroom, that is. Every time one of us is on the road, and taking a leak, we see each other’s faces in the “upcoming comedians” ads the clubs place above the urinals. It’s a real honor. Pete is super funny, and a super nice guy, BUT WE’VE NEVER ACTUALLY HUNG OUT! This episode was an awesome one, because I got to know somebody I felt like I already knew, but didn’t. Turns out he’s more than a smiling face above the pisser. Who knew?!

THE CALLS:

1) Michelle from Morro Bay, California has a hilarious question. LISTEN TO FIND OUT WHAT IT IS!

2) A heavy-drinkin’ fan wants to know, HOW DOES HE CUT DOWN?

3) A guy who’s about to lose his job asks, HOW DO I MAINTAIN COMPOSURE AND NOT FREAK OUT? Thanks, Mightys! You are the wind beneath my wings of silly. Enjoy.

Ep 56 – Dan Cummins Has Done it All, and Now He’s Helping YOU!

June 24, 2021

Dan Cummins is, as they say, a self-made man. Your average Joe might not call him famous, but he has a massive fan base both for his stand-up and for his several podcasts. He also lives in a small town in Idaho with his wife and kids, the living anti-embodiment of the “You have to live in LA or NY to be a successful comic” BS. Want to know something else? He’s a real dick. Kidding! Dan is one of the kindest, most warm-hearted joke-slingers I’ve ever known. We had a ton of fun helping people with their problems (we hope).

THE CALLS:

1) A young fella wants to get into stand-up and WAIT FOR IT eventually start his own comedy club. Help?

2) A nice lady has come out to her husband a Bi after ten years. How to start telling others, and who should she tell? 3) A hilarious dude gets me good with his question. LISTEN TO FIND OUT WHAT IT IS! Thanks, Mightys!

Ep 55 – Kurt Braunholer Helps, and Drinks!

June 17, 2021

Kurt Braunholer 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!

Ep 54 – Wayne Federman Stands Up to Help!

June 10, 2021

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!

Ep 53 – Megan Galley is Helping by Being Real (and Judgemental)!

June 3, 2021

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!

Ep 52 – Laraine Newman, the Goddess Herself, Flies in to Help!

May 27, 2021

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!
