About Us On HORSE, we don’t analyze wins and losses. We talk beefs, dig into Internet drama, and have fun. The NBA is now a 365-day league and it's never been more present in pop culture. From Kevin Durant's burner accounts to LeBron taking his talents anywhere to trusting the Process, the NBA is becoming a pop culture requirement. At the same time, sports can have gatekeepers that make it insular and frustrating for people who aren't die hard fans. We’re here to prove that basketball is entertaining to follow for all fans, whether you’re actively watching the games or not. Recently featured in The New York Times!

Ep 39 - Tom Thakkar Loves Dumb Stuff, and Helping!

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. THE CALLS: 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!Call Matt and ask a question 323-763-0228New episodes arrive every Thursday via The Laugh Button.For advertising opportunities email advertise@thelaughbutton.com Learn more about your ad choices.
