3) The Comedy Awards is giving a whole bunch more categories (Podcast, Twitter account,  viral video, and more) over to the voters!

6) Another awesome preview of what’s coming at the Nerdist YouTube channel….

7) So, Former Senator Arlen Specter is still doing stand-up

9) No matter what you saw on the promos, Eric Andre is indeed in Don’t Trust the B**** in Apt. 23 and is great. The pilot is up on Hulu now.

10) Two comedy essays worth your time:

Comedy in Context for the Nerdist written by us

11) So the folks over at Funny or Die are having a whole lot of goofy fun with the Zou Bisou Bisou scene from Mad Men. Watch Danny Jelinek add lasers and elephants to it
