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 k…
 
Justin Martindale is a strong-jawed “Store guy” like myself (half of this is true for me). We’re both Comedy Store performers here in LA, we’re both tall guys, but only Justin is cool, and gay. He’s recently returned from a somewhat rough gig performing in the deserts of Palm Springs so we’ve caught him at a particularly hilarious time. Justin has …
 
Comedian Amy Miller won the Funniest Person in Portland Tournament two years in a row, so of course, I love her. She’s also a great friend who’s known not to bullshit. Her honesty, cutting wit, and openness have made her one of the best comics out there. She grew up in a religious family, isn’t too religious anymore, but still has that age-old fear…
 
Recorded from ON LOCATION on Tim’s hotel he’s staying in before shooting The Righteous Gemstones! You might have seen Tim on that show, Shrink, or any of the other things he’s been quietly hilariously in. But don’t let any of that normal person stuff fool you, he’s also a really nice guy. Tim sat down with me to talk comedy, improv, the Old Chicago…
 
Isaac Fitzgerald is a writer of essays, adult books, and even children’s books! Kyle Kinane gave me his book “How to be a Pirate” for my daughter Rose and she loves it. He’s also a story teller, a lovely guy, and a world-class drinking buddy. Like a lot of my episodes, we spend a good amount of time catching up on each other and talking about our n…
 
Roy Wood Jr. is one of those comedians that every comedian is a fan of, and he agrees with me that all of us only see each other in the airport. Now a correspondent and writer on The Daily Show, Roy was one of those people who did the hardest gigs coming up, and it shows. He shares some of those stories on here, stuff I’d never heard, as well as tr…
 
I know, I know, we’ve had Arlo on already, but I love them so much, especially now that their curmudgeonly charm is in full bloom. The pandemic has been rough on all of us, and this podcast has let me check in on “Coach” twice! Cool fact: They were the last person I had a restaurant meal with!! And it was a special meal. I told them I was having a …
 
This is the one you’ve been waiting/asking for, even if you haven’t. Dana Gould was a guy I looked up to when I was coming up as a young comic, and now that I’m old, we’re actual, real-life friends. He’s done it all, seen it all, and still hasn’t lost his love of the art form. He’s also not very jaded, which is refreshing for a person who’s been do…
 
Hello Mightys, it’s me, your leader. Longtime listeners know a Mighty is a fan of the show, so if you’re not one, now you know. I thought I’d take this episode to say thanks, listen to the calls, and see if there’s anything you’d change/like to hear more of/etc. It’s a fun ep, as a few of the calls were meant for my maniac brother Eric Andre (we go…
 
Eric has a certain reputation, some of it earned (he likes drugs, he’s adventurous, he’s wildly creative/kind of fearless), and some of it not (he’s crazy). I’ve known Eric for at least 13 years and he’s one of the smartest guys I know. He also cares about what counts (friends, good times, being a good person) and not about what doesn’t (money, bei…
 
You know him as Champ Kind from Anchorman, Todd Packer on The Office, Bill on The Goldbergs, or a hundred other things. Me, I know him as a Chicago improv legend and one of the kindest dudes ever. From helping me and other friends of mine along the way through this minefield of a business to letting me and my then-girlfriend (now wife) use his dres…
 
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 horri…
 
Reggie Watts is someone I love to watch on stage as well as hang out with (it’s less common than you might think). An improvisor at his core, Reggie creates music and comedy from scratch onstage and has an open, creative mind when it comes to others offstage. We first met at the Bumbershoot Festival in 2009 and he inspired me big time, because at o…
 
My friend Andy Wood is a comedian and massive nerd (his own admission) who started the Bridgetown Comedy Festival with me in 2007. It ran ten years and helped the PDX comedy scene hugely, as well as gave a ton of comedians and fans the times of their lives. He also won Jeopardy four times (!!). A kind and gentle fella, he was the only guy in my bac…
 
Michelle is an old friend, and we have something in common: our lives have had many acts. We both started in very strong comedy scenes (her in Austin, me in Chicago) that both liked to drink strongly. We’re both now parents with kids, and don’t regret our party pasts. See? You CAN have it all! It was fun catching up with Michelle and busting each o…
 
Biz Hurst is my manager, a friend, and lately a zoom drinking buddy from time to time. They’re also trans non-binary, a snappy dresser, and somehow not entirely losing their mind in the current NYC lockdown. Oh, this is while also juggling a roster of young, hungry comedians like me (Kidding about me, but seriously all her other clients are pretty …
 
I can’t tell you all the stuff I’ve been through with Matt Dwyer. We’ve known each other for decades, and more than a few of the memories are lost to utterly destroyed brain cells. Who better than him AND me to offer advice to you, the youth of the world? We’re also both dads now, and he’s one of the only people I’ve seen during the dreaded quar (h…
 
Robin Tran is smart, trans, hilarious, and a badass on the comedy and roast scene. Recently she’s blown up online as well, partly because of Covid but also because of getting on the right track with her depression. This episode went long and I laughed out loud a lot. THE CALLS: All I’ll say is A) There are four of them, and B) They start with a com…
 
Whoo! 2020 is over! More BS is yet to come, but hopefully (with what we’ve been through) we’ll be ready. I wanted to do this episode by myself to kick the year off right, and to go old school with the pod. Way back when I started, I did it guest-less, so here I go again on my own (a la Whitesnake). I did five calls. Yes, five. Were they doozies? He…
 
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 …
 
Happy Holidays, Mightys! This is one of those amazing episodes where I didn’t know the person I was interviewing, but by the end we were close, personal friends. Ashley Gavin is hilarious and very amazing. Also, she’s gay. Why do I mention that? Well, for one, it makes her cool. And B, she has a podcast called “We’re Having Gay Sex.” Folks, talk ab…
 
I’ve known Yassir since he was a doorman at The Improv back in my early Los Angeles days, and he’s certainly taken off like a rocket. He’s a male model (like myself), just ask him. Black Monday is his most recent credit, and his IMDB is impressive, but I know him more as an amazing, fearless standup and a writer on a TON of shows. He’s also one of …
 
The Living Tombstone is, by their own definition, “an internet band,” but they’re more than that. They’re fun, kindhearted, and insightful, especially for such young dudes. And yeah, I know, I’m obviously a super young dude too, but whatevs, bro. Anyway, this one went long and we got deep into some real stuff. My tendency with this podcast is to er…
 
Comedian Brent Terhune joins me this week all the way from Indiana by way of Comedy Itself. I’m always on the hunt for comedians I’ve never seen to become fans of, and over the past couple of months I’ve become a huge fan of Brent’s. If you’ve never seen him live, maybe you’re one of the hundreds of thousands who have seen his videos (a lot of whic…
 
It’s Thanksgiving week, and though it’s been a monster punch-in-the-dong of a year, we still have things to be thankful for. This week I’m thankful to have the hilarious Corey Ryan Forrester on the show. You might know him from his no-BS-taking pro wrestler character “The Buttercream Dream,” but I know him from his hilarious stand-up. Either way, h…
