Morning Debriefing 11/17/11

1) Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes yet again and hopefully celebrities will learn how to take a joke in stride by now.

2) Jerry Seinfeld on Letterman.

3) Rob Delaney wants your help for his upcoming Comedy Central pilot taping.

4) Don’t miss out on Conan tonight as both Jimmy Pardo and Pete Holmes will be appearing (TBS 11PM) or Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and their chat with Bill Maher (NBC 12:35AM).

5) Though very few people seemed to have notice amidst the chaos of Community being taken away from the midseason NBC line-up, Fuel TV’s talk show, The Daily Habit, regularly featuring some of the funniest up and coming comedians/performers in Chris Fairbanks, Andre Hyland, Hal Rudnick, and more is coming to an end even though they were starting hit their stride comedically with their original characters. It was the only TV show where Rob Delaney got to read his tweets while backed by a band. Did you even know that it was happening?

6) Brendon Walsh just started his own podcast that’s aptly title, we guess, Bonezone.

7) Two hilarious sketches to brighten your day (if you’re into that sort of thing): The Walsh Brothers’ parody of Drive and “Secret Admirer” from Uncle Mom.

8) Comedy variety show, Hamclown, celebrates it’s one year anniversary today. Check out this quick retrospective with the hysterical madness they’ve gone through over the last 12 months.

9) Amazing sketch, music, comedy extravaganza Lost Moon Radio needs a house manager for their next run. Interested?

10) We hate the movie Puss in Boots. We also hate the general ‘family comedy’ business model. Read our explanation for both at the Nerdist.

14) When comedians use their notes on stage and attempt to apologize for it in a funny by saying, “I use my notes because I’m a professional,” what they mean to say is, “I’m so insecure I don’t even realize that I should draw as little attention in how I shouldn’t be reading my notes. Please still love me.” FYI.
