Episode #15 "Alpha" Male Anxiety Feat. Mike Bramante 4-23-20
Shiv talks to Mike Bramante on "Alpha" Male Anxiety and on generally just being two men with emotions. However, Mike is more than just a man with emotions- he is a NYC-based comedian/writer who has won the the Inaugural Comfy Comedy Clash, won a Broadway Comedy Club Residency, co-hosts a show in the city called the "Tell You What" Comedy Show at the V-Spot (A vegan restaurant get your minds out of the gutters), and, as if that wasn't enough, he has been selected to headline Broadway Comedy Club's Breakout Headliner Series in the future. Basically, Mike is no scrub. Mike and Shiv talk about what it means to be an "alpha" male and what traits we possess/lack in the eyes of that ultimate alpha. Sometimes we get emotional, but at the end of the day, we conclude that crying while watching Finding Nemo is the ultimate "alpha move"- please listen to find out why and as always if you enjoy please subscribe, share, and/or rate it will make me and Mike cry tears of joy for the next decade- thank you!

Comedian Mike Bramante gets honest about recovering from a breakup he wished would have never happened. What transpires in the wake of his heartbreak is a healing that very much goes against the grain of modern dating, in that, rather than rushing to replace, he takes the scenic route back to love and along the way approaches “moving on" as a choice to either forget the relationship (both its wins and losses) or honor the person he’s become in thanks to the relationship. As Mike explains, “Heartbreak is a sad thing but the relationship is the happy thing.” His choice has been to accept the ending in order to appreciate the relationship—a brave move that almost seems instinctual. He also opens up about the importance of bending your absolutes, managing clinical OCD, the tension between the fear of death and the fear of dying before you’ve lived, accepting uncertainty, and how his breakup motivated him to go all-in with comedy. __ To connect with Mike, visit his: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michaelbcomedyWebsite: https://www.mikebramantecomedy.com__ Work with Chelsea: www.breakupward.com/shopChelsea’s website: www.breakupward.comSign up for Chelsea’s newsletter: bit.ly/tyhbletterInstagram: www.instagram.com/thankyouheartbreakEmail: Chelsea@breakupward.com
