Morning Debriefing 2/11/11

1) One-on-one single elimination stand up comedy is here: March Comedy Madness.  Now taking submissions. Details here.

2) A few days ago, I posted that I was disappointed that the @RealGallagher Twitter account was fake as it included tweets that were horribly homophobic, racist, and reactionary.  Yesterday, I read this article about a recent performance of Gallagher and, to my bittersweet delight, those tweets weren’t too far off.

3) The Ultimate Free & Cheap LA Comedy List 2/13-2/19. Thanks Wisepix.

4) Are you tired of hearing a comedian’s WHOLE set and just want to hear their brilliant closer?  Of course you’re not, but “That’s the Light” is a showcase of many of LA’s best doing exactly that.  Telling their best ending joke will be: Lizzy Cooperman, Matt Champagne, Sean Green, Raj Desai, Erica Doering, Robert Yasumura, Troy Conrad, Jan Davidson, and more!  Also, they’re being judged by none other than Taylor Negron, Barry Sobel, and Larry Joe Campbell as this is part of a series with the Los Angeles Comedy Festival. 10:30PM $10 at the Asylum Theatre in Hollywood (6320 Santa Monica Blvd.) E-mail for reservations.  Don’t miss it.

5) Dana Gould on Conan.

6) In the same fervent spirit as myself, though much more far reaching, Kristy Mangel has her amazing, fantastic, in-depth, enlightening comedy magazine RE: COM available for digital download for $2.  Marc Maron’s on the cover, so at least click on the link, will you?

9) Recently: Mubarak stepped down.  Maybe Andrew Dice Clay should also step down like the Sklar Brothers suggested.

10) Miley Cyrus is hosting SNL. Perhaps, I should just invent a time machine to go back to the seventies where I belong.
