Morning Debriefing 7/22/11

1) You could win $10,000 for one punchline on [via

2) The Comedy & Magic Club has been around for 33 years. Got to respect that, especially when they’re hardly mentioned in the same sentence with the Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, Hollywood Laugh Factory, and the Ice House.

3) Though Nate Bargatze didn’t get to perform last night on Conan (he will get to very soon and we’ll remind you), you can catch Jarrod Harris, another amazing member of the former Southern Comedy Quartet Tour comprised of Rory Scovel, Sean Patton, Nate, and Jarrod on Lopez Tonight next week on Thurs. July 28th TBS MIDNIGHT.  

4) Ever get a sticker from comedian Greg Barris? Learn it’s real origin.

Fuck You, I'm Batman

5) The LAist on the coolest show that you can’t go to (because it’s invite only) at Hot House, a concept that would only work in LA or NY.  We’d also like to add that one Marie Colette does a damn fine job putting the show together every month.

6) If you wondered what happened exactly at Holy Fuck this past Tuesday, here’s their words. If you don’t know what Holy Fuck is, go to the Downtown Independent Theater at 251 S. Main St., Los Angeles, CA on a Tuesday that’s preferably very soon at 9PM.

7) Lost faith in romantic comedies? Here’s a list we made on Laughspin that might help with that.

8) Puddin’-“Goat” w/guest Laura Silverman (Possibly one of our favorite Puddin’ episodes thus far)
