Morning Debriefing 7/8/11

1) Congratulations to Ahmed BharoochaBrooks Wheelan, and Jeremy Paul for finishing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, respectively, in the Ultimate Laff-Down, one of LA’s longest running comedy competitions.  Go see them at one of the many shows they’ll surely be on; they won’t disappoint. 

2) Paul Provenza on Good Morning NY

Paul Provenza:

3) Comedy podcast network Earwolf will now have a blog with Joel Mandelkorn(producer of the Super Serious Show & Plop List) as it’s editor.  It’s even more great comedy news if here’s not enough.

4) Why You Should Watch Louie… if you’re not already sitting at your computer waiting for it to come to Hulu.

5) See Robyn Von Swank, one of comedy’s best photographers, at work for Weird Al Yanovic’s “Alpocalypse”.

6) Watch Erin Gibson what people walking along Hollywood Blvd. think the perfect wife is/why I don’t walk down Hollywood Blvd. that often.

7) How to Find Your Comedy Niche via Connected Comedy. Give it a read-it’s good advice.
