Episode 096: Thoughts from Mom-nonymous

By Help Person|December 4, 2018|Thoughts from Mom-nonymous, Uncategorized|

Episode 096: The Funny Thing About Relationships with Barry Weisenberg This week’s guest, Barry Weisenberg, “King of One Liners” Stand Up Comedian, tells how relationships affect comedy and vise versa. On board with this is Leanne Linsky, another Stand Up Comic. They compare notes and The Boyfriend joins in with lots of questions. What a fun episode this was! Comedy is a science which takes a lot of  thought, writing, and reflection of moments in their lives. For Barry, it goes back to his childhood, bullying, and rejection. Barry said that at times he had really low self esteem, depressen, and even thoughts of suicide. Relationships can also affect us that way. However, these two comics share more in their comedic skills. While waiting in the wings to go on stage and observing other comics they learn so much. When a comic bombs, and they have all done that at one time or another, they relate to that feeling. They will encourage that comic to come back and do something new next time. The more you perform the more you learn. Sometimes doing comedy makes for short relationships. The nightly hours don’t always work. Significant others have to enjoy your humor and talent. It takes

Episode 004: Losing My Religion

By lifelafterdivorce|February 28, 2017|Show notes, Uncategorized|

Episode 004: Losing My Religion (and getting a divorce) with special guest Derick Whaley Are we ever prepared to find out someone cheated on us? We explore this and much more with Comedian Derrick Whaley, who shares his thoughts on religion and its impact on his relationships. What do you do when someone cheats on you? I always think, “oh I’d do this” or “I’d do that.” But when it comes down to it, I don’t do any this or that. I just move on. The Boyfriend admits to burning letters that his ex sent him. He hasn’t burned items that didn’t belong to him. As I think back, I have shredded pictures and even burned a few. We both agree that it’s more of a cleansing action, and not so much about getting back at the other person. However, I’ve thought about getting back at someone. I’ve even researched the effects of itching powder on Amazon. I’ll even admit that I did use an ex-boyfriends shirt to clean my toilet before giving it back to him. However, I’ve never acted out and did really mean things, and I’m glad to hear that The Boyfriend hasn’t either. We both usually just want to get away and

Episode 001: Communication Breakdown

Episode 001: Communication Breakdown (and divorce) with special guest Jim Barnes Jim Barnes, stand up comedian, host of Jim Barnes and Friends and The Sunday Night Mic at Flappers Comedy Club in Claremont, CA joins us to share his relationship experiences. Our first episode and we’re going to talk about…communication. We communicate every day to our friends, family, co-workers, strangers, everyone. It’s how we navigate our way in this crazy world. So why is it so difficult when we’re in a relationship? The Boyfriend and Leanne agree that direct communication is crucial for any relationship to survive. Hoping someone reads your mind or picks up your subtle cues just doesn’t work no matter how many times we try. Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it mean. It seems easy enough, but it’s amazing how many times we don’t do it. What’s holding us back from being open and honest with the one we care about most? Maybe it’s fear. Maybe it’s just not knowing any better. Either way, like any good habit, it takes practice. Then there is the other side of it. Listening, and really hearing someone -not just what we want to hear. What is the tone? What is

Suzy and Leanne have been friends for at least six years and have seen each other through some good times and bad, including breakups, startups, acting gigs, auditions, and life. Leanne Linsky is a two-time divorcee who decided to take the two things she knows well – comedy and divorce – and marry them into a business . After her second divorce, she remembers lying on her bedroom floor in the fetal position thinking, “I’m not going to let this make me into a bitter old woman with nine cats. I want to make this into the best thing that ever happened.” And so she did. Leanne began saying yes to new opportunities every chance she could. A co-worker suggested she take an improv class and she did. That was it for her. Leanne was hooked. Improv gave her a healthy outlet and, as a result, taught her how to improve her communications skills, gave her a new perspective,
