Morning Debriefing 7/2/11

1) “@WKamauBell Comedians apologizing is the new black.”  We agree 100%.

2) Jorge Garcia from Lost apparently tried out stand-up at the Laugh Factory. [via BTNPR]

3) Davey Johnson is really one of the funniest people we know. Watch ‘What’s What?’

4) Ben Schwartz interviewing Garry Shandling over Twitter.

5) Riki Lindhome of Garfunkel and Oates lands role in “Fun Cast”.

6) MLB blocks Chapter 11 Dodger Jerseys from being sold.  Come on, Selig… that’s really funny.
