Morning Debriefing 4/8/11

1) Series “House of Lies” that Ben Schwartz is in got picked up on Showtime!

3) The BBC recently visited NY and was marveled at their plethora of storytelling shows.  Though the Moth started in NY, we’ve got plenty here in LA including This is Not Happening @ Hollywood Improv, Public School Stories at M Bar, Two Headed Beast at Stories Books & Cafe, and plenty more that keep popping up.  Check it BBC.

4) The Ultimate Free & Cheap LA Comedy List 4/10-4/16. Thanks Wisepix.

5) If only I knew more about designing websites and HTML code, I could make an open mic map as pretty looking as this one on LA Comedy Insider.

6) The Comedy Bureau “Tip of the Hat” (meant to be written earlier this week) to the Walsh Brothers! (Next one will be on time)
