Morning Debriefing 10/14/11

1) Barry Rothbart on Leno.

2) Comedy Central is looking for short-length pilots

3) OccupyLA is having a comedy show tonight with an already pretty great line-up including Affirmation Nation’s Bob Ducca and Jimmy Dore.

4) Just when you thought NBC had lowered the bar enough giving development deals to Dane Cook and Snoop Dog, CBS lowers the bar even further with a deal to Fred Durst.

5) Comedy gets its own This Is Spinal Tap in The Hacks

6) Sal’s Comedy Hole is cutting off their Saturday and Sunday open mics and will now require you to show up to perform (as opposed to their e-mail sign-up).

7) Spin Magazine is going to have a humor issue with Patton Oswalt as a guest editor.
