Morning Debriefing 11/26/11

1) Jimmy Pardo’s Pardcast-a-thon, which only ended a few hours ago, finally tallied a whopping $34,636.39 for Smiletrain. Also, apparently, Jon Hamm showed up and got drunk. Congrats on both counts!

2) So, Insane Clown Posse came into the closet for SNL Writer Mike O’Brien’s his web series 7 minutes in Heaven

3) Not that it makes any difference hearing it from us versus all the other great things you’ve heard about it, but The Muppets movie is definitely worth catching.

4) Humor magazine, The Devastator, featuring contributors from the Daily Show, The Onion, McSweeney’s, The Cobert Report, Adult Swim, and more just made a new issue available for purchase/subscription.

5) Eddie Pepitone’s first live comedy album, “A Great Stillness” will be released and celebrated on Dec. 1st!

6) If you’re not following David Seger’s ‘New In November’ run where he makes a video and posts it online everyday, then you need to stop doing your NaNoWriMo novel and check it out for things like Whiskey Vision (taping a camera to bottle of Jack Daniels then letting the night unfold).
