Morning Debriefing 10/5/11

1) Perhaps, the Coen Brothers will bring balance once again to the realm of television with a show they’re developing for Fox.

2) They say you can’t do comedy outside. They say you can’t do comedy without a mic and a mic stand. They also say you probably shouldn’t do comedy at some sort of rally situation. Well, FUCK “they”. Lee Camp’s got something to say at Occupy Wall St. [via Connected Comedy]

3) The LA Weekly just came out with their Best of 2011. Congrats to Nerdist Theater, the Tomorrow Show, and What’s Up Tiger Lily? for making the list. Too bad they couldn’t extend their comedy Best of’s as there’s so much more to the LA Comedy Scene.

4) Ricky Gervais on Twitter and the creative process.

5) Didn’t think you see the day when Pete Holmes played Batman, did ya? 

6) Funny or Die’s take on Tim Cook preparing for his iPhone 4-something speech.

7) Puddin’-“Rag” w/guest Laura Silverman
