That's Not the Point!

Ding-Donger #1: That’s Not the Point!

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Please welcome comedian Matt Braunger to the Nerdist podcast network with his new show Ding-Donger with Matt Braunger, fifteen minutes of Matt sounding off on whatever’s on his mind… epic theme song, too.)

Matt hops in and talks about the Bridgetown Fest, unveils some new sponsors, gets into male creepiness, tells the story of the most ridiculous guy hitting on a woman ever, explains the legend of Darrin, and gets into why you should never assume racism when you look like a caveman.

    Man, what an intro song! You guys should put out an album of songs exactly the same as that one but with different lyrics each time.

    Also cool podcast keep making them

  2. Dave says:

    LOVE! Great idea for a podcast, plus Matt is one of my favorite comedians ever. Never stop, Donger.

  3. Ryan says:

    I would call it “Wish it was longer with Matt Braunger”

    Other genius/stupid/crazy come-on’s(or come-off’s) I’ve heard spoken by the hammered:

    “No,no,no,no its not you I’m attracted, its you future!”

    “If you say that in another language, I think it means yes.”

    In a casino – “I understand, but why don’t you give my slot machine another go.”

    “You should really give me another chance. Haven’t my people suffered enough!”

    (Recounted without slurs or pauses)

    This was fun. HAVING FUN IS FUN!

    Hey Matt,
    Great start to the beginnings of what is going to be a great podcast. Your story of the laundry lady on the bus is something I pretty much experience seeing a bit here in LA on the trains; some doucher screaming across the compartment to some girl who’s just not having it. Seriously, that’s your game?

    And everyone knows a Darrin in their lives.

    Until the next episode…

    I can’t wait for the next one. I’ve seen so many guys try to pick up women through people before and it’s the most obnoxious way (more so than the drunk doing the last minute walk-around at the bar) to pick up women and simultaneously piss everyone off around you. I love the comment about “life being an adventure” because it really helps alleviate the depression in believing we’re trapped in the ideas of “Mr/Ms Doe established started a successful company at 19 and does that mean I’m an utter failure”. Again, I can’t wait for the next one and congratulations on the new Podcast!
