Morning Debriefing 7/1/11

1) I can think of at least 5 places off the bat where you could do this… [via IHateComedy]

EMBED-Standup Anywhere: A Holy Taco Contest – Watch more free videos

2) Kelly Oxford on Last Call with Carson Daly.

3) Weird Al Yankovic made music videos for his whole new album and they’re all right here like Party in the CIA.

4) RT @MarcMaron For those asking: My New CD, ‘This Has to be Funny’, will be out in August.

5) Megan Amram at the Cheesecake Factory

6) Jackie Kashian in LA Weekly.

7) Last night, we went to the vintage video game arcade Ground Kontrol for the first edition of Ron FunchesNo Pun Intendo and to show you how packed it was, the picture below was literally the best picture we could take of Mike Drucker killing it and dispatching a heckler wearing an Effin Vodka shirt (at a vintage video game arcade no less).  

Most amazing part to us was that hipsters wanted to see the show, believed in comedy so much that they stopped playing X-Men to watch comedy.
