Morning Debriefing 6/26/11

1) In Portland, OR now for a week, technically on vacation. Just hope you all appreciate that we still haven’t missed a single day of posting since we started.

2) Watch out for this: @marcmaron Okay, I guess the cats out of the bag. There is a feature on me and the show in the new @EW. Dunno if its out on newsstands.

3) You can still submit something to RE:COM for a few more days. Get in by June 30th.  Don’t miss an opportunity to 1) to be a force/voice for comedy 2) see your name in print (that’s right it’s a print magazine).

4) Congratulations to Barbara Gray and her fantastic show One Two Punch getting written up in the LA Times.  Follow @BabsGray on Twitter to keep up to date when the next One Two Punch is as well as damn hilarious tweets.

5) Comedy Bang Bang has a blog about their podcast?!? Alternative comedy gone ever more self-reflexive…

6) Speaking of self-reflexive, this video by “comedy artist” by Charlotte Young was posted by the Daily What several days ago, but  who hasn’t thought they were bullshitting whatever they were saying at least once while on stage? Only the other week, I could have swore that I said on stage, “I have material that works, I swear." 

7) This isn’t LA comedy exactly, but it’s pretty fuckin’ hilarious: Kurt Braunohler and the World Wild of Animals.

Kurt Braunohler’s World Wild of Animals: Dolphins – watch more funny videos
