Morning Debriefing 11/2/11

1) Wendy Liebman on kills it on the Rosie Show.

2) Yesterday, Colin Quinn had a meltdown on Twitter (@iamcolinquinn) calling foul over Will Ferrell winning the Mark Twain Prize for Humor. Unfortunate as it is, it’s the precarious temptation of the craft of comedy to delve into jealousy of where one person is versus another, especially if you’re that “one person”, but take Kyle Kinane’s word for it regarding doing comedy, “You just keep going and going because you’re sick about it.”

3) Thankfully, despite the inevitable wave of Kardashian apologists, Rob Delaney maintains his position of suing Kim Kardashian on MTV News.

4) Whether you were wondering or not, Funny or Die is making their version of a trivia show with Billy Eichner, which, as you might have guessed, talking to complete strangers on the streets of NYC and giving (or not giving) them cash.

5) In the world of political comedy: FoD adds another Michelle Bachmann sketch in their hilarious saga following the wacky congresswoman and deranged millionaire John Hodgman defends the 1% on the Daily Show.

6) Huge news in the world of hosting: Jimmy Kimmel will be the next in line for hosting the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and Jerry Seinfeld can find out ‘what the deal’ is with Kelly Ripa when he replaces Regis Philbin on Live with Regis & Kelly

7) Puddin’-Fiddle Faddle
