Ep. 118: Rose Abdoo and Ben Gleib

You might just make it after all! It’s a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Rose Abdoo is an actor who you can see now in HBO’s “Hacks” and Hulu’s “Reboot.” Her acting aspirations began in college – thanks to how much she hated waiting in lines to register for classes. She’ll explain. Plus we’ll learn more about how seriously Rose takes her characters, from their backstories to their outfits.

Ben Gleib is a comedian who’s always looking for new ways to showcase himself. At the peak of the pandemic, he decided to create the world’s first virtual comedy venue at nowherecomedyclub.com. As much attention as that’s gotten him, he’s also got a secret talent that he’s equally proud of: being an expert at playing the kazoo. Ben’s new special is called “The Mad King.”

Our guests will answer trivia about music, music and even more music!
