Morning Debriefing 2/10/12

1) Jon Glaser spread his, as @cleftclips put it, “blissful stupidity” all over LA last night both on Conan and at Cinefamily for the Delocated Show.

2) Did you forget how brilliant Dana Gould is for a second? Here he is as “Maurice Evans as Dr. Zaius as Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain” just as a reminder.

3) Last night on late night, Carol Burnett recounted how writers’ rooms haven’t changed much in comedy on Conan, Chris Hardwick announced the launching of the Nerdist YouTube channel on April 1st (or will it?) on Fallon. Tonight on late night, catch Neal Brennan on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC 12:35AM) and Portlandia on IFC at 10PM right before that.

5) Whether you’re a nerd or the former bully that has learned the error of their ways, you should definitely check out print (yes, that medium hasn’t died yet) comedy publication THE DEVASTATOR because, as you’ll find out, the world is in jeopardy unless you do so. Also, plenty of hilarious people contribute to it that are from Conan, The Simpsons, Adult Swim, as well as people who are Asterios Kokkinos

The Devastator #4: Arcade

6) The March Comedy Madness, the stand-up comedy single elimination tournament, is back and is having open auditions today at the Comedy Store from 3PM to 7PM, of which, “we” will be sitting in on the panel. 

7) Check out the trailer for Seeking a Friend for the End of the World with Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Patton Oswalt, and even TJ Miller as a TGI Friday’s-ish host. It sure reminds us a lot of a Canadian movie with Sandra Oh, Last Night.

8) Speaking of Patton Oswalt, he is currently in talks to be in a Ben Stiller remake of a 1947 Danny Kaye film with Shirley MacLaine and Kristen Wiig.

9) Jake Weisman addresses his last Superbowl op-ed and his identity as a deity and the Lombardi trophy’s identity as a trophy.

10) Speaking of the Superbowl, we gave advertisers and marketing companies a bunch of suggestions to make more effective ads at the Nerdist for the 2013 Superbowl because they didn’t convince anyone to buy anything this year.

11) The LA Weekly, somehow, found out the 5 spots where we’d most likely spend Valentine’s Day daytime drinking.

12) …and now, for an important message from future Paul Cibis.

13) Many in LA poke fun at the people writing their screenplays in the coffee shops of LA as if it’s a metaphor for the pathetic desperation that keeps this city alive enough to have a pulse. I like to point out the fact that too many in LA make metaphors of how they’re doing nothing.
