Morning Debriefing 1/21/12

1) The Duplass Brothers latest film, Jeff Who Lives At Home with Jason Segel and Ed Helms, isn’t perhaps as “Duplass Brothers-y” as Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom is “Wes Anderson-y”, but, if you ask us, it’s still pretty Duplass.

2) Jon Fisch, in making his network TV debut, becomes the first comedian to perform on Letterman following the Eddie Brill-NY Times debacle.

3) The Vans Should Sponsor Comedian Dave Ross saga continues with this video… (meaning, yeah Vans, you should sponsor Dave Ross)

4) In to submit to soon news, The NY Television Festival’s Comedy Central Short Pilot Contest is closing acceptance of submissions in less than a week while the Bridgetown Comedy Festival has over a month before they do the same.

5) Riot LA’s totals for their Kickstarter: $14,903 of $20,000 with 13 days to go.

6) Wonder what Eddie Pepitone doing therapy in his car is like? Wonder no more. (You were wondering that, right?)

7) Thanks to Katie Crown and Nathan Fielder, you can find a person dressed up as “Pixar” at Hollywood & Highland.

8) In case you’re being hunted by Nazi spies, Davey Johnson gives you the 411 on what everyday weapons to use to foil their plans on What’s What.

9) Most comedians won’t be live-tweeting the SAG Awards not because of it sort of being pointless to do so. They won’t live tweet the SAG Awards because it’s on TNT and TBS and most comedians don’t have cable.
