Whether you’re in the mood to surf some waves or binge some TV, this episode of Go Fact Yourself is for you!

As an actor, Quinn Cummings saw success at an early age. She was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the film The Goodbye Girl. It was a great experience, but one that put a bit of a strain on her relationship with her mother… and her hair. She’ll explain. Quinn can be heard on the podcast "Quinn Cummings Gives Bad Advice".

Like Quinn, Greg Behrendt also has experience giving others advice, especially with relationships. He’s written several books about love, including He’s Just Not That Into You and serves as a private life coach. What exactly are his qualifications? Just a 30-year comedy career, multiple books on the New York Times bestseller list and the fact that he survived cancer (twice).

The guests will compete to answer trivia questions about surf music, animated Netflix shows and their respective expertise on cats and dogs.

This episode is sponsored by Spencer Marks’ new science-fiction novel Living History. Go to livinghistorynovel.com and enter the promo code "HELEN" to purchase the book for a discount and to have it personally autographed.

Move This to the Top of Your Queue: Five Must-See-Now Comedy Classics

| 0 comments

It's so frustrating. All week long you've been looking forward to Friday night so you could relax and watch that special comedy film that's been sitting in your queue for months - the one that your friends constantly quote and praise. But just as you settle in and bust out the popcorn, you notice that the movie has disappeared from your queue. The streaming service of your choice no longer has the rights to show it.

Okay. Now you're feeling disappointed. Somewhat like Otto (Kevin Kline) in this scene from "A Fish Called Wanda."

Thankfully, there is a solution. Multiple services have been granted access to the Netflix API and publish information from the company's database about which movies and shows will soon be added to or depart from the streaming lineup. (And they seem to be publishing this information with the company's tacit approval). So now you can discover in advance when the streaming rights to your film will expire.

But what's that you say? You don't have time to scan all of those services each week? That's why you have friends like us!

A team of intrepid MaxFunsters has joined together to sort through those listings, identify the gems that you shouldn't miss and - most importantly - tell you when you need to watch them in order to avoid DISAPPOINTMENT.

Click here to see our list of five great must-see-now comedy classics, along with clips, the reasons why they are unmissable and the date when each will disappear from your queue. Happy streaming!

Jane Espenson (writer and producer for Torchwood, Battlestar Galactica, Buffy, Caprica, and Game of Thrones, amongst others) is developing a new web series called Husbands. It’s a classic newlywed comedy about two men who are dating and, while on a trip to Vegas, wake up to find themselves married. The first episode is expected on September 13th.

Donald Glover is preparing a one-hour special for Comedy Central called "Weirdo." The special will air on Sunday, November 20th and it will be his first full hour for television.

Ben Folds will be releasing a new anthology on October 11th called "The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective".

Jimmy Pardo was recently interviewed in SF Weekly. He talked about his early relationship with Bob Odenkirk as well as his favorite advice for young comics. Characteristically, that advice is very straightforward: "[w]henever people ask me for advice on comedy and how to get started in stand-up, there's no way to get started but to do it. Write down your ideas, things you think are funny. And then do it." Pardo will be joining Dave Anthony and Greg Behrendt this week on their podcast "Walking the Room".

Just in case you missed Louis C.K.'s most recent appearance on Conan last week, here's the clip. It includes great new material about murder and one highly unusual idea for a children's Halloween costume.
