Morning Debriefing 1/8/12

1) The Final(?) episode of Henry Phillips’ fantastic web series “Henry’s Kitchen” is finally here. Apparently there might be “lost episodes”…

2) Today is the Annual Improv Everywhere No Pants Subway Ride. Just a reminder to Los Angelenos, we do have a subway to partake in this great tradition. In fact, Charlie Todd, founder of Improv Everywhere has captured the attention of so many with large scale pranks that a race driver wanted sponsorship from Improv Everywhere.

3) In case you were wondering why the LA Times was so excited about 50 First Jokes, here’s some fantastic pictures from Megan Baker, the Comedy Hipster.

4) Josh Adam Meyers, while still in recovery in Cedars Sinai, is standing and, finally, live Angelo Bowers’ performances are being uploaded such as this one at the Comedy Store.

5) In Parks and Recreation news, Carl Reiner will guest star and Amy Poehler will direct an episode.

6) Did you know Elizabeth Laime from the Totally Laime podcast on Earwolf writes poetry that’s pretty damn funny? We’re glad we know now.

7) Riot LA Kickstarter Total: $7,699 of $20,000 with 26 days to go.

8) Where are both the Comedy Crawl and Open Mic Run? Not to worry, here, now called the LA Comedy Rundown, they are. Seriously, calm down and click that hyperlink.

9) If I hear someone else tell me, “Hey, stand-up is hard. Keep it at.” I AM ABSOLUTELY GOING TO ponder for several more days than I should and tell the blogosphere about it, but never really resolving the issue at hand because that’s what comics usually do.
