Morning Debriefing 2/16/12

1) Bill Maher perhaps, “one-ups” CK and Gaffigan by announcing that his new special will air on Thurs. Feb. 23rd 7:30PM PST on Yahoo.  

2) The Comic’s Comic has got the lowdown who is taping the upcoming Comedy Central half-hour specials… 


3) Last night on late night, Jon Stewart tried to stop himself in a bit on Letterman and Myq Kaplan crushed on Conan. Tonight on late night, Jeffrey Tambor will hopefully keep our hopes about Arrested Development on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (CBS 12:35AM), and legend Joan Rivers will be on the Late Show with David Letterman (CBS 11:35PM), as well as legend Steve Martin will be on Conan (TBS 11PM)

4) The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is on its way to Seattle!

5) A Second City Tokyo? That’s right…

6) Did you guys know that Chris Fairbanks special “Fairly Uncertain” is completely on YouTube?

7) The Colbert Report briefly stopped production, hopefully, for Colbert to further scheme his way in this year’s presidential race.

8) Community’s Gillian Jacobs will be in a magician comedy with Steve Carell, yet there is no report of Pete Holmes (creator of one of the funniest jokes about magic) being involved.

9) In honor of the 1 Year anniversary of Puddin’, we picked 10 of our favorite episodes.

10) I get irked every time a comedian signs off from a set by saying, “I’ve been [their name]” as if they’re returning a far off island of cynical people.
