3) Last night on late night, Megan Mullally revealed how Nick Offerman throws a surprise birthday party on Conan and Ted Alexandro did a tight 5 min. on Letterman.

4) One of our favorite web series, Anne, Frankly, is back! (Yes, it’s the anachronistic vlog of Anne Frank starring Jamie Lee)

5) Steve Heisler gave us all a reasonable warning of how we’re nearing comedy podcast over saturation for the AV Club.

7) Just in case you haven’t heard Dave Foley’s WTF podcast episode, here he is on CNN Comedy explaining why he has to do comedy non-stop.

8) Win tickets to Anna David’s True Tales of Lust and Love by telling us if you’re lonelier than crying in public.

9) If only we all could eat bananas like Jesse Case does
