Comedian and TV writer Joe Wengert teaches us how to use your anxieties to your advantage, how to buy a house, how to be a substitute teacher, how to be an eccentric, how to start learning comedy during a national tragedy, how to scare your parents, how to avoid wearing wigs, how to meditate, how to make a good to-do list, and how to buy compact discs in the year 2016. Then we completely fail at The Alphabet Game and realize that we both don't know the alphabet and should be fired from comedy.

Acclaimed comic book and TV writer Ed Brubaker ("Captain America," "Westworld," "Batman," "Daredevil," "Gotham Central") teaches us how to create the perfect cartoon sound effects, how to grow up on Guantanamo Bay, how to write for Marvel, DC, and indie comics, how to differentiate between types of nerds, how to co-create a famous supervillain, how to use the letter K to make everything better, and how to do the world's worst Trump impression. Then we play "Villainize Them," where Ed gives supervillain names to famous people. And Drucker.

"Wet Hot American Summer," "Billy on the Street," and "Difficult People" writer Jake Fogelnest teaches us how to offend Jake Fogelnest, how to host a talk show at age 14, how to sneak into Universal Studios, how to witness the start of the Upright Citizens Brigade theater, how to survive in Los Angeles without a car, how to be a big Hollywood asshole, how to enjoy the new "Ghostbusters" movie, and how to offend people without being annoying. Then we play "The Offense Game." What would you do to ruin your child's school play? Well, besides being there.

"Party Over Here" star Alison Rich teaches us how to prevent jealousy, how to deal with nipple hair, how to get noticed by Andy Samberg, how to watch "The Bachelor," how to play Scrooge as a little girl, how to write for SNL, how to show off your teeth on Tinder, how to deal with other people's success, how to try out for the Harvard Lampoon, and how to find a boyfriend online. Plus we play a game of "Swipe Out," where we decide who's worth swiping right for. Would you sleep with the Lorax? Drucker would.

Comedian Jake Weisman (@weismanjake) teaches us how to keep in touch with your friends, how to talk to porn stars, how to use Amazon Prime to strengthen relationships, how to learn joke-writing through poetry, how to enjoy life because it's ultimately meaningless, how to take the perfect knife selfie, how to be a cat gentleman, how to work in a chandelier store, and most importantly, how to make your mailman laugh. Then we play a game of "Can't Keep In Touch With This." How would you avoid talking to your worst high school teacher at the supermarket? Hint: Be weird.
