Morning Debriefing 2/24/11

1) If you’re not watching live comedy in a garage this weekend, then you’re really missing out something awesome, amazing, and uniquely Los Angeles.  DO NOT MISS both The Comedy Car Hole in West LA this Fri. 9PM and The Comedy Garage in Burbank Sat. 10PM.  Oh yeah, they’re both completely free (and have ample street parking).

2) The More Fucked Up You Are, The Better Your Material by the hilarious Amy Dresner [via Antithesis Comedy]

3) The Origins of Meltdown (you know the awesome live comedy show every Wed. 8:30PM $8 in the back of Meltdown Comics at 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, CA say that 5 times fast) [via Turnstyle News]

4) OK, I know that I’m repeating myself here, but seriously, Emo Phillips is in town next Monday Feb. 28th at the Steve Allen Theater for Cartoon Dump and if you don’t go to that please don’t make eye contact with me.  Similarly, you should be watching or DVR’ing to watch repeatedly Comedy Central Presents Kyle Kinane Fri. Feb. 25th 11PM (that’s tomorrow).

6) Recently: Some people think that Umami Burger is the best burger in America.  That may be all well and good, but it still can’t physically take down the Baconator, at least the way Comedian Eric Andre describes it.
