4) Once again, Don Rickles graces the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson tonight (CBS 12:35AM)

5) Female comics respond to HuffPo about the continuing trend of uninformed essays regarding women being funny.

6) Rapper Open Mike Eagle has great taste in comedy as shown in LA Weekly while Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant have great taste in Amoeba
