Morning Debriefing 8/13/11

1) The Nerdist TV Special will air on BBC America Sat. Sept. 24th 10PM. Of course, they couldn’t just let a Yank be on the BBC by himself…


2) Henry Phillips makes “french toast” and it’s amazing

3) Paul Danke’s takes us down memory lane/the Back 2 School aisle.

4) Marc Maron picks his five comics to watch, which is vastly different from Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch.

5) Though some of this might seem obvious, apparently, it’s not; Connected Comedy tells comedians what not to do on Facebook.

6) Wonder what an elite improv class is like? Take an inside look into Matt Besser’s Master Class… (this is where you’re supposed to say “yes and…”)

7) Wisepix’s The Ultimate Free & Cheap LA Comedy List 8/14-8/20.
