Morning Debriefing 12/9/11

1) SF Sketchfest is coming and boy, oh boy do they have a doozy of a line-up. Eddie Izzard, Reggie Watts, Wet Hot American Summer: The Live Radio Play, Jon Benjamin Has A Van LIVE, Set List, and more.

2) The Nerdist YouTube channel just launched!

3) Kyle Kinane has a lovely chat with the A.V. Club Toronto.

4) The Story Behind Marcel the Shell with Shoes On.

5) Bill Maher will help start a comedy channel for Yahoo. Not that we’re the betting kind, but I’d imagine it’s a pretty safe bet that much that channel we’ll be dedicated to the legitimacy of Yahoo’s trending topics.

6) Nick Offerman and Aziz Ansari will be on Bob’s Burgers.

7) Just in case, you didn’t catch it for the thousands of time it was posted yesterday, here’s Louis CK’s outtake for his latest special Live at the Beacon Theater coming out online on Dec. 10th for $5.

10) Hey happy couples, thank you for going to live comedy shows, taking part in the mirth of the night and laugh, but there’s no damn need to play footsie while I’m standing next to you to remind you that I don’t have that. Take your laughing and quit while you’re ahead.
