1) The Bridgetown Comedy Festival (@bridgetown on Twitter) in Portland (it’s a big festival that relatively close to LA) has been officially announced!!! I.E. April 21st-24th with some of LA’s best including Kyle Kinane, Brent Weinbach, James Adomian, Jimmy Dore, Moshe Kasher, Mike Phirman, Jan Davidson, and much more!!!  More details to come as we get them here at the Comedy Bureau.

2) #HigherStakesChildrensBooks-hilarious way to get through Tuesday on Twitter.  Follow this hashtag to find stuff like this “@pattonoswalt Blueberries for Salo: 120 Day of Sodom” (may or may not be NSFW)
