TV and film makeup artist Cyndie Lou Boehm teaches us how to look hot, how to find the career that makes you happy, how to collect horse semen, how to almost join the military but become a ballroom dancer instead, how to save money by living in a crack house, how to look like a zombie, how to work your way up from "America's Most Wanted" to "The Tonight Show," how to de-shine a bald head, and most importantly, how to make Super Mario look sexy. Join us for a game of "Fixer Upper," where we find out how to fix fictional characters' janky faces. You got served, Grimace.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" writer and Twitter star Bridger Winegar (@bridger_w) teaches us how to sell a story to the tabloids, how to survive a Mormon mission in Malaysia, how to develop a Twitter persona and get confused for a woman online, how to go from being a tv intern to a tv writer, how to wreck Craig Ferguson's car, how to shoot a Weezer video at the Playboy Mansion, how to almost die from a sunburn, and most importantly, how to overcome your fear of volleyball. Then we play a game of "Eat or Fuck," where we ran out of ideas and just name things for Bridger to either eat or have sex with. Would you travel back in time to eat a fascist dictator?

Comedian Aparna Nancherla teaches us how to embrace failure, how to google yourself, how to choose between West Point and comedy, how to not kill birds with rice and Alka-Seltzer, how to do standup outside the U.S., how to start a fun podcast about depression, and how to deal with rejection. Then we play the Awkward Game, where we figure out how to get out of awkward situations. Just follow that pigeon.

Found Footage Festival hosts Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher teach us how to work with an annoying friend without strangling them, how to spot an amazing old VHS tape, how to get arrested for counterfeiting money, how to stay entertained on a long road trip, how to make balloon animals for restaurants, how to prank morning news shows, and how to accidentally meet Donald Trump. Then we play a game of “Finish Me Off,” where we all get the rules completely wrong. But we still have a good time!
