Greg Behrendt is a comedian who puts life-coach lessons in his humor. In between his rants of puzzlement at the ridiculousness of life and human behavior, he spouts advice: on job fulfillment (how to rock at your job whether you are an actual rock star or a bank manager) and building relationships with friends (instead of making a sign for your favorite celebrity or singer, make one for your friend Dan the Drywaller for that great wall he built). He even turned his relationship book, "He's Just Not That Into You," into a 2009 movie.
Why go: Besides his stand-up, Behrendt writes for major TV shows, so he always has some humorous stories to share.
Reconsider: You're just not that into Behrendt.
