In Andrew's interview, Sally talks about how going to hear Jimmy Burrows speak at her college changed the direction of her life, her rise from PA to writer on the original Will & Grace, and why REVIVAL was truly "the one that got away." This is a great interview with lots of golden nuggets about show business! Enjoy

McGinley as Cal Keating, Larry Wilmore as Sam Fishkin, Mimi Kennedy as Veronica, Anna Camp as Female Host/Alice/Cop/Waitress, Ayden Mayeri as Reagan, Craig Cackowski as Male Host/Straight Guy/David Spade, Andrew Ti as Walter, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.

MaxFun is running a survey to help figure out which advertisers are a good fit for our audience. We’re still primarily audience supported, and that will always be the case, but advertising can be a helpful source of income, especially right now. The results of the survey will help us talk to some new advertisers and convince them to give us a shot. The survey is short - shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes, and you’ll get a discount at the MaxFunStore for filling it out. Also, our gratitude.

Go to maximumfun.org/adsurvey (all one word) to fill it out.
