7) The Comedy Bureau “Tips Its Hat” today to ROBERT BUSCEMI-“@robertbuscemi No man is an island. Though congrats on getting one you can’t escape from named after yourself, Gilligan.” Taking you on wild ride of absurdist imagery with a painfully clever wit, Robert Buscemi is certainly an act that should be seen as much as possible to veritably “lost” in laughter. Twitter. Blog.  Check back at the Comedy Bureau for show dates.

8) From the “You Should Have Been There” Lagoon: Ricky Gervais Takes His Emmy Back (hope something like this happens tonight)

9) What It’s like at the end of the day of the Comedy Bureau: “Night, Jake.” “Night, Jake.” “Yeah, good night to you too Jake.” “Don’t forget to restock the ink cartridges, Jake.” “We don’t have a printer, JAKE!” “Go buy one, Jake” “GO SHOVE IT JAKE!” “See you tommorow, Jake.” “Yep.”
