Morning Debriefing 5/6/12

1) The 2nd Annual Comedy Awards airs tonight on Comedy Central at 9PM (meaning you’ll see snarky tweets at 6PM EST) following the Between Two Ferns Special 8:30PM (with celebratory tweets at 5:30PM EST)

2) Get a look at tonight’s Comedy Awards red carpet with Julie Klausner

The first of my Comedy Awards red carpet videos includes some pretty important talk with Billy Eichner about Amanda Plummer! Plus some other black tie chats with Matthew Perry, Robin Williams, Maya Rudolph, Reggie Watts, The Gregory Brothers, Retta, the cast of Happy Endings, Ty Burrell, Hannibal Burress, Kristen Schaal, & many more jesters and clowns! Thanks for watching. x

3) ALSO, if you wanted a program even though you’re not attending The Comedy Awards tonight because it’s already taped, here’s Laughspin’s liveblog and a list of winners from the Laugh Button

4) Freak Dance the movie is taking the nation by storm

5) Claudia Cogan is taping an album at the The Little Modern Theater in June. Translation: Please attend for great amounts of laughter.
