Morning Debriefing 4/7/11

1) Rolling Stone’s got a pretty good podcast list.  With The Pod F. Tompkast, WTF! w/Marc Maron, The Nerdist, The Smartest Man in the World w/Greg Proops, Comedy Death Ray Radio, and more that we all should probably listen to, Rolling Stone almost makes up for the garbage “Top 100 Guitarists of All Time” list they put out every year. 

2) Jay Larson’s CD taping is TONIGHT at 8PM and you can still bypass the general cover fee with promo code: LARSON.  Along with performances from Pete Holmes, Melissa Villasenor, and Al Jackson, don’t miss a chance to laugh until your head will almost fall off and a chance for your laugh to be recorded forever.

3) Besides already knowing who won the upcoming Comedy Awards airing Sun. Apr. 10th, find out more with interviews from Tony Sam and Kate Riley at CarpetChloe Moretzsketch duo briTANick.

4) Last night was a good night Late Night TV: Norm MacDonald on Kimmel Part 1Part 2 & Don Rickles on Letterman & Marc Maron on Ferguson.
