Morning Debriefing 11/5/11

1) Bill Cosby demands applause on Letterman and deservedly so.

2) Charlie Day will be hosting SNL tonight (NBC 11:30PM). Tune in. That’s what we’re doing.

3) John Hodgman apparently brought his ferret skeleton to his interview with LA Weekly.

4) What’s that? A new weekly open mic in Hollywood? in a comedy venue? That’s right. Bang Comedy Theater has a weekly new open mic for comics every Friday starting at 5:30PM; no purchase necessary.

5) What’s What gives us a better way to watch the upcoming Adam Sandler vehicle Jack & Jill.

6) Raunchy Comedy + Campaign Fundraisers for City Elections + “Controversial” Churches = Trouble in Cerritos.
