Morning Debriefing 3/26/11

1) The Full Bridgetown Comedy Festival (@bridgetown) line-up is out! It would almost seem the whole LA comedy scene will be up there for a weekend.

2) Norm MacDonald has his Comedy Central Presents Hour Long Special Tonight at 11:30PM!  Charlie Sheen may have stole his thunder from gaining Twitter followers, but that won’t happen tonight… I hope.

3) Also, Norm MacDonald’s Sports Show premieres Tues. April 12th. ALSO, as seen in this staff “weigh-in” video, comedians Sean O’Connor and Doug O. Perkins now write for the show, which deserves a congratulations thrown their way and a definite watching of the Sports Show.

4) Comedian interviews/profiles to check out: Kyle Kinane in NonPopulist/Sean Green on 24/7 Comedy.

5) Conan O’Brien wants your dreams for a secret project. Nothing sounds suspicious about this, right? Check the details here.
