1) WTF! w/Marc Maron IS GOING TO BE ON THE TERRESTRIAL AIRWAVES!!! KCRW 89.9FM THIS SUNDAY 11AM!!! (Yes, we are indeed shouting this bit of news)
2) On the small screen tonight, there’s of course Louie on FX 10:30PM, but there’s also, of course, the Green Room w/Paul Provenza on Showtime 11PM, and Nate Bargatze on Conan on TBS 11PM, but let’s not forget the PREMIERE of NTSF:SD:SUV on Adult Swim 12:15AM (which is technically tomorrow morning, but who really buys into that)
5) Yesterday’s best hashtag game on Twitter was possible names for a Chris Brown inspired romantic comedy: #chrisbrownromcom
“@dubouchet-Shut The Fuck Up Bitch! Met Sally”-Andrés Du Bouchet
“@kevingchristy-Don’t Say Anything”-Kevin Christy
“@shanenickerson-He’s Just Not That Into Punching You. Just Kidding, He Is.”-Shane Nickerson
“@stvschndr-I Think I Love My Wife (Dead)”-Steve Schnieder
“@remainchampagne Something’s Gotta Give (Like Her Jaw)”-Matt Champagne
9) People believe in comedy-even if the show’s double booked and you have to get chairs from business in the immediate area and do it on the roof, people believe in it and here’s photographic proof from Ahm Mingus when weekly live comedy show Holy Fuck had to do exactly that..
10) The Compatish and Chubby Bunny-Grown men, stuffing marshmallows in their mouth, and trying to say Chubby Bunny (just in case you were wondering…)

15) It’s funny how we give advice about performing comedy here at the end of Morning Debriefing sometimes (yesterday) and then someone tries to disprove it and then fails miserably (also, yesterday). It’s hilarious.
