Morning Debriefing 2/9/11

1) Yet again, it’s the Montreal Just For Laughs Showcase CALLBACKS!!! More updates will come as I receive them.

2) Chris Elliott on Conan can only mean some hilarious madness as the brand new series Eagleheart on Adultswim starring Chris Elliott is produced by Conan O’Brien, so tune in at 11PM to TBS. 

3) Though it was a relatively small turn out, The Big Trouble in Little Tokyo Open Mic was still a WHOLE BUNCH of fun and most people who made the trek out seemed to have a good/productive night as well as catch Hasan Minhaj and Sean Conroy do what they do best, making people laugh (though Conroy is quite the free style rapper).  I hope to see all of you, AND I MEAN ALL, next Tuesday with Ron Lynch and Heather Thomson.

4) Congratulations to one Julia Prescott, a wonderful member of and a comic within the LA comedy community, on her new writing gig for MAD at Cartoon Network

7) Recently: Russia might choose Santa Claus as their mascot for the Winter Olympics.  I think they should in an attempt to better relations with the U.S. have their mascot be Johnny Pemberton as a Tea Bagger.

8) I witnessed comics voting UNANIMOUSLY to do less time at an open mic.  I’m still trying to process this.
