Morning Debriefing 6/2/11

1) LA Comedy in Festivals x 2: Check out the LA Improv Comedy Festival and (comedy in) the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

2) Lastly on June 13th The Comedy Store is proudly co-presenting the screening of “Tony Clifton Live on the Sunset Strip” at The Egyptian theater. The Comedy Store will be giving away a number of tickets for this film so if you are interested in getting on the list email with your name and the number of tickets you would like. 

3) If you’ve never checked out Channel 101 in LA, here’s why, amongst several reasons, why you shouldn’t miss it; EVERYTHING.

4) Punchline Magazine Review of Midnight in Paris (I/the Comedy Bureau wrote this). 

5) Tips for the Open Mic Run? If you have any tips on open mics around the LA area that give around 5 min. of stage time and don’t charge an outrageous minimum to support the venue, please e-mail

6) OK, as far as comedy flyers go, this is one of the best I’ve seen this year (anyone thinking about making a Five Guys spin off, don’t).  Also, go see Powerviolence (the show this flyer is for) on Sundays.  It’s unbridled fun.

7) Puddin’ “Enviroment”

8) Don’t bother with questioning.  Of course you would love a summer camp run by comedian Barry Rothbart. So, watch the trailer for Barry Rothbart’s new series Sunshine.

11) Apparently Louis CK dropped in at independent stand-up show, Frolic! and the Hollywood Improv last night while Seinfeld dropped in at the Comedy Store in Picadilly, a popular neighborhood in London. What do these two things have in common. I didn’t get to see them. Damn.
