2) The Zero Film Festival, an LA film festival dedicated to those that finance themselves, the self-starters that do it most of their filming probably on the sly, is looking for submissions.
3) Comedy Nerds United compiles comedians and their muppet look-a-likes. No, there is no other way around like that “Man or Muppet” song in the new movie. It’s just comedians.
4) It takes quite the prank video to get mentioned at the Comedy Bureau, but asking Target employees for items on a list that your “friends” wrote that you’ve never seen is pretty good. Yeah, we know you saw the first one (it has over a million views), here’s the new one Mediocre Films uploaded today.
5) And now for an important message from Connected Comedy and the importance of web videos in comedy.

9) It’s great that any comedian wants to be honest and is tired of their stupid old act, but there’s no need to announce as your entire set that you’ll be doing that AT YOUR NEXT SHOW that you incidentally want people to come to. That’s wasting everyone’s time.
