Morning Debriefing 11/30/11

1) Patrice O’Neal will not only have his special “Elephant in the Room” aired on Comedy Central at 8PM (edited) and at 12AM (uncensored) tonight, but a brand new album, Mr. P, from O’Neal will be released posthumously next year.

2) And then there was a teaser for Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie in which they quote themselves a bunch…

3) On Conan last night, Nathan Fillion revealed how he will go undefeated at Halloween. Tonight, Bill Cosby will be on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC 11:35PM), Nick Kroll AND Michael Kosta will be on Conan (TBS 11PM), & David Sedaris will be on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (CBS 12:35AM). It’s a lot to leave in boldface type, but it’s deserving.

4) Christina Pazsitsky’s “It’s Hard Being A Person” came out yesterday!

5) It seems everyone’s reading Rookie Mag’s feature of letters from and to funny people like Maria Bamford, Sarah Silverman, Tig Notaro, Gina Yashere, and more.

6) Norton’s Stuff Theatre is happening right now.

7) Nando’s, a fast food chicken chain, went from using Reggie Watts in their ads to making fun of Mugabe and Gaddafi?

8) Puddin’-“Brando” w/guest Andy Richter
