LA Traffic Filter: How much time to head to the airport for an 8am flight on a weekday?

I can't believe I'm wasting a question on this, but I'm having real difficulty.
I have to fly to LAX from the east coast for a meeting. No big deal. However, in returning home, my flight is at 8am. I'm staying in the Huntington Beach area, which according to Google is a little less than 40 miles from LAX.
If I want to arrive at the airport at 6am on a Wednesday, knowing I have a 40 mile cab ride from Huntington Beach (it looks like the 405 is involved?) to LAX, how long will this take? Should I have my taxi pick me up at 5am to get there at 6am?
I have to stay at the hotel in Huntington Beach due to a meeting/conference and don't have other options. I have no transportation options but to take a taxi or the Super Shuttle (which is a 9-passenger van that makes stops). My company is cheap and won't spring for a car service or car rental, even though this would probably be waaaaay more cost effective than two cab rides, one out and one back, but I'm not about to argue logic with corporate policy.
