Morning Debriefing 6/27/11

1) Right before the Green Room with Paul Provenza on July 14th 11PM returns for a second season, Showtime’s airing reruns of the first season!!! Here’s the schedule!!!

2) Louis CK continues his run on the talk show circuit on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight on ABC at Midnight, then the Daily Show tomorrow on Comedy Central at 11PM.

3) There’s always a debate what is the mark of you making it in the biz of entertainment, but certainly Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park remixing your comedic tribute to Ice Cube’s “Today Was A Good Day” has to be up there.  Nicely done, Hasan Minhaj.

4) Norm MacDonald at the Comedy Car Hole.  That’s right, that’s Norm at a garage comedy show.  Not to worry, this has nothing to do with his show being cancelled.  One of his writers helps run the show.

5) So Sarah Silverman and Todd Glass performed in Tel Aviv… [via Punchline Magazine]

6) We’re not big collectors of merch and such here at the Bureau (our budget doesn’t allow for it), but this is pretty awesome-MST3K Headboard [via theDailyWhat]
