Mysteries will be solved and species saved on this episode of Go Fact Yourself!
Jenny Jaffe is a comedy writer who grew up with an obsession for 90’s Nickelodeon animated shows. Her career has now come full circle: she’s landed a gig to writing for the upcoming version of “Rugrats!” She’ll tell us about that and some of her other obsessions that haven’t been a part of her work.. yet.
Jenny will take on actor/writer Jim Rash. Jim is a pretty accomplished guy. He’s known for his role as Dean Craig Pelton on NBC’s “Community.” He’s also won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the film The Descendants. But in spite of his success, he’s still not above searching for some quality advice on Instagram… even if he has trouble following it. You can hear Jim now as the voice of Gyro Gearloose on the new version “DuckTales.”
This week’s trivia topics include moisturizing, basket weaving and cuddly critters.
