Jordan, Jesse, GO! can be consistently found in iTunes' Top 50 Comedy Podcasts, year end lists, and on my stereo.

Recorded at Jesse Thorn’s home studio in Silver Lake, Thorn, Jordan Morris, and a guest (typically from the world of non-blue collar comedy) spend the 90 minute podcast goofing around. The results are smart, light-hearted hilarity. Even their occasional bathroom humor seems thoughtful.

Today, from 4 p.m. to midnight, at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, Jordan and Jesse are having a podcastathon with some of their funny friends. The event marks the end of MaximumFun.org's 2010 MaxFunDrive. MaxFun is Thorn's hub for a handful of podcasts, as well as the virtual home for his nationally distributed public radio show, The Sound of Young America.

Tickets are sold out but the event will be streaming live with both audio and multi-camera video on MaximumFun.org via Ustream. The event will feature Jimmy Pardo & Matt Belknap, The Sklar Brothers, Sarah Thyre & Andy Richter, Paul Scheer & Rob Huebel, Jimmy Dore & Stef Zamorano, Edie McClurg, Scott Aukerman, Stephen Tobolowski, Adam Lisagor, Superego, and more.
