Morning Debriefing 4/11/11

1) Comedian Barry Rothbart on national TV… again.  After appearing frequently on national commercials for Taco Bell, web series “Do Whatever”, in which he stars, is set to air on IFC soon.

2) There’s still win a chance to win a spot on the Long Shot Podcast!!!

3) With an endorsement from Kate Micucci and this review, Re-Animator the Musical, might be something to catch at the Steve Allen Theater soon.  It may not be the Human Centipede musical, but why the f*$# would you want to see that?

4) “All awards shows are bullshit made up clubs where people decide to give each other prizes. So, I want to thank Comedy Central for saying, ‘we could do that, we could give each other prizes.”-Tina Fey about the Comedy Awards/Reason the Comedy Bureau thinks that such awards shows really shouldn’t be broadcasted ever
