Morning Debriefing 2/18/11

1) Comedy Extravaganzas to Watch for: Jeff Ross’ Roast in Peace @ The Comedy Store Fri. Feb. 25th and The Paul F. Tompkins Show 9th Anniversary Celebration @ Largo Sat. Mar. 19th.  I can’t really afford any of this, but if you can, you’d really should tear up your money for missing it.

2) The Ultimate Free & Cheap LA Comedy List 2/20-2/26.  Thanks Wisepix.

3) Due to the circumstances beyond their control, the very popular comedy and variety show Trick @ Bordello Bar has been cancelled for the month of February.  More details on the next show soon.  Also, note to new management, people would have come to the show in herds.

4) Open Call for the March Comedy Madness is taking place today at the Comedy Store Original Room from 3PM to 7PM.  They’re asking for 2 minutes of funny and apparently no entry fee, so what’s the harm in hitting another spot tonight.  Here are more details.

5) Tonight’s COMEDY CRAWL-Takin’ it easy… sort of…

7) Recently: Justin Beiber made some very astonishing comments about rape, then was shot in an episode of CSI, and subsequently still makes his music.  With all that in mind, I’d like to see him play Dwayne Wade one-on-one like comedian Matty Goldberg did.  Over and over.

8) The Super Serious Show is why most people should equate stand up comedy to overweight balding men insulting front row audience members with bigoted commentary and subsequently why you should believe in live comedy.
