MAD MAN: Mad TV & UCB alum Matt Braunger plays the comedian and the straight man at the same time.

No serious examination of the facts will lead a sensible person to conclude that the Trump trolls have a point when they say it’s a “scary time” for straight white men in America today. That doesn’t mean cis dudes don’t face any challenges. Comedian Matt Braunger manages to coax some non-confrontational laughs out of the insecurities that arise from being single and 39 in the #MeToo era. “I don’t want to be creepy!” he says, lamenting the unfortunate nature of his own biological imperatives. “No matter how smooth you break the ice, the objective is still the same.” Thru Dec. 9.
