Morning Debriefing 2/3/11

1) Watch TELL YOUR FRIENDS! right now (even though i just posted) WATCH IT!!! TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!! (both the name of the movie and what you should do after you watch that trailer).

2) Eagleheart. BOOM. The Return of Chris Elliot/Rise of Chris Monsanto. BOOM Adult Swim on Cartoon Network.  BOOM.  Midnight. BOOM Watch it. BOOM. OR. YOU. WILL. BE. PUNCHED. (metaphorically) (boom)-my text only version of an Eagleheart Promo.  Seriously, watch it.

3) Just in case you forgot about the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, they’re accepting submissions until 2/28.  The Comedy Bureau will keep you updated all the way along as a significant portion of you will probably forget to submit before the deadline.

4) OK.  The amazing laugh riot of a sketch group the Birds of Prey are having a free show at the Comedy Central Stages on March 2nd.  Call (323) 960-5519 for reservations because they will be packed out and you will get to witness the genius that is Lizzy Cooperman, Susan Burke, and Emily Maya Mills directed by Joe Wagner.

5) Jamie Kilstein on Conan.  Whether you missed it or actually watched it or saw it live…. you should probably watch it again at the link above.
