Morning Debriefing 3/22/12

1) Dave Chappelle is back on Twitter @ChappelleDavidK (though the account is still not officially verified) and Bill Corbett (MST3K) has joined Tumblr, so maybe you can not hate social networking for a week. 

2) Last night on late night:
Wendy Liebman on Fallon
-Will Ferrell wore women’s sunglasses, discussed butt sex, and showed his passion for training dogs on Conan  
-Don Rickles on Kimmel Parts One, Two, and Three

3) Remember that time on The Office when Michael Scott ran out first when Ryan burnt a cheesy pita? The Office, as a whole show seems to be doing that in real life as they are looking for new showrunner and Ed Helms has joined Mindy Kaling’s Fox pilot. Along the same lines, The Onion News Network has went “Stamford”.

4) Watch Goatface comedy “do” a “man on the street” “sketch”. (There’s a reason for the quotation marks, so watch)

5) The very funny Candice Thompson and Brenda Colonna are starting their own wonderful web series, Creepy Caress, that needs your help on Kickstarter
