Morning Debriefing 1/5/12

1) It’s weird to say (when you think about it), but RIOT is definitely on pace and let’s keep it going. The proposed LA alternative comedy festival is at this moment $4,310 of $20,000 and was just mentioned on Vulture. Don’t you want RIOT? Let’s keep this going, please.

2) Dave Attell basked in the memories of his porn next to an attractive young lady again on Conan, Judy Greer also had great family stories also on Conan, Tracy Morgan got back to being Tracy Morgan on Leno. Can Tina Fey top all of this tonight on the Late Show with David Letterman (CBS 11:35PM)?

3) Educated yourself today as the South Park documentary “Six Days to Air” is now on Netflix.

3) So, Grace Helbig of Daily Grace is moving to LA for two months… 

4) Hot dog puppets and the lesbian pool scene from Wild Things make for a great start to Thursday thanks to Annie Lederman and Abbey Luck.

5) Michelle Bachmann isn’t done until Erin Gibson’s Michelle Bachmann has the final say.

6) Funny or Die is doing 80’s TV intro parodies. Our favorite, Prairie Children. Why can’t we invent time travel and make these really happen back in the 80’s already?

7) One of our favorite blogs, Concocted Conversations, now, is taking submissions as illustrated by this concocted conversation.
