Morning Debriefing 3/31/11

1) LA Comedy invaded your TV last night:
Brent Weinbach on Lopez Tonight killin’ it.
Mo Mandel on Conan killin’ it.
Norm MacDonald gettin into a Twitter fight with Steve Martin on Letterman and killin’ it.

2) Don’t let 522 (last checked when I linked this) people down, help Garfunkel and Oates get on Conan via this Facebook page. (The Comedy Bureau doesn’t guarantee this is a way to get the girls on Conan, but it won’t hurt so just go ahead and do it)

3) Marc Maron Interview on Serial Optimist.  All Serial Optimist interviews are top notch, which makes this one an absolute read.

4) John Oliver’s NY Stand Up Show. Midnight. Comedy Central. Maria Bamford. Moshe Kasher. That’s it.  Well… don’t forget to watch it!

5) In case you missed it, here’s Punchline Magazine’s list of comedians cast in upcoming network pilots. ON THIS LIST: James Adomian, Eric Andre, Kate Micucci, Mo Mandel, Jon Dore, and more!

8) Shook the hand of Greg Proops after watching his brilliant podcast live, which was a lot like one of the opening scenes of Lawrence of Arabia where a man takes pride in shaking his Lawrence’s hand.  Try it sometime and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
