Morning Debriefing 3/8/12

1) Comedy Central just greenlighted 3 series from Andy Daly, Jeff Ross, and Nathan Fielder, respectively. Along with the arrival of the Eric Andre Show, Comedy Bang Bang, Girls, and Veep, 2012 will be quite a year for new comedy on TV.

2) Of the documentaries coming up about comedy, The Bitter Buddha about Eddie Pepitone is one were definitely looking forward to.

3) Last night on late night, Kumail Nanjiani educated the world about heroin on Conan. Tonight, Conan has a stellar episode lined-up with Rob Riggle, Mike Lawrence, and even frequent cameo star in Funny or Die exclusives and huge comedy fan Jon Hamm (TBS 11PM).

4) Funny or Die to launch a digital magazine, The Occasional, available for download on the iPad for those real fancy comedy nerds.  


5) The Nerdist welcomed a new podcast into their fold, The JV Club with Janet Varney

6) Lewis Black to have his next special, In God We Rust, on Epix Mar. 17th.

7) It’s always fun when Rob Delaney answers questions on Reddit

8) Judy Greer’s pilot for ABC just keeps getting more fun as Ken Marino is set to co-star.

9) We’re still doing a ticket giveaway for Anna David’s True Tales of Lust & Love this Saturday if you want to go.

10) Ice Cube’s “Good Day” is probably on the same day that comedians refer to as “…the other day.”
