Morning Debriefing 7/30/11

1) Marc Maron’s keynote address from the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal is now online in its entirety. Listen here

This will be posted in various forms more than once today here (and no, we’re not sorry about that).

2) No one ruined the Open Meg[aphone] last night in Burbank, so it will be happening again on August 12th.

3) One of our absolute favorite shows in town, The Tomorrow Show with Ron Lynch, is celebrating their 6th Anniversary on August 6th and we were lucky (or cool) enough to get a leak of the amazing line-up they have in store, which is as follows:

Craig Anton
Brendon Small
Neil Hamburger
Brett Loudermilk-sword swallower 
Jack Dagger-knife thrower
Gabriela Crowe-chanteause
Bryan Coffee-physical story teller
Ten West
Unknown Hands Puppet Troupe
Frank Conniff
David Higgins
Laura Silverman
Demetri Martin
Eddie Pepitone
Mike O’Connell
Cookie Monster

Admission is $15, BUT if you go to the Tomorrow Show tonight, you’ll only have to pay $5 for the astounding anniversary show. 

4) If you go to Holy Fuck next Tuesday, this will be happening…

5) The Ultimate Free & Cheap LA Comedy List 7/31-8/6 via Wisepix.

6) Doctor w/Pete Holmes & Matt McCarthy-“Prostate Exam”

7) Troy Conrad and Paul Provenza’s Set List gets written about overseas.

8) Of the recent Variety Top 10 Comics to Watch/JFL New Faces, a few of them got a Tip of the Hat of us before they hit the big time.
