It's a collision of comedians on this episode of Go Fact Yourself!

Scott Thompson is known for being part of the famed comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall. How did he become a part of such a well-regarded group of funny people? Let's just say that it all started with a table full of donuts. He'll explain the rest.

Scott faces off against comedian Jenny Yang. Growing up, she thought that she was destined for a career in political activism. But through a long road that included lobbying and poetry readings, she became a comedian and TV personality on the E! Network show "Busy Tonight".

In this episode, we'll learn about timeless movie stars, city planning and the expansive network of UCLA alumni.

Crazy Rich Asians

This is a feel good episode, ya'll! We've got comedian Jenny Yang on the program to talk about Crazy Rich Asians. She is uniquely qualified to discuss this film because she has seen it FIVE TIMES! This episode also signals the return of "The King of Christmas" - Alonso Duralde. He has traveled to the east coast and back to regale the crew of tales from his journey and his love for lobster. Ricky pours one out for the death of "Hiatus Ricky" as he goes back to work on Tosh.0. Plus, the gang goes over some of the most atrocious examples of whitewashing in movies - from Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell to Emma Stone in Aloha. And as always, we've got Staff Picks.

In news, Michael Caine reveals the ending to Inception, Kevin Spacey's Billionaire Boys Club makes $618 in its opening weekend, Boots Riley has some thoughts on BlacKkKlansman, and Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder may be married.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - 1). Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2). Cop Land
Alonso - In the Mood for Love
Jenny - To All the Boys I've Loved Before
