Morning Debriefing 8/24/11

1) The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was the show to watch last night as he got an anthrax scare and had Lewis Black on.

2) The National Lampoon Twitter Awards rightfully nominates Eddie Pepitone multiple times where the Shorty Awards didn’t.

3) Tom Scharpling is 1) not Patton Oswalt and 2) makes amazing music videos.  See what we’re talking about here.

4) Rick Overton gets interviewed by Buzzine for The Green Room with Paul Provenza.

5) The Comedy Garage FINALLY has a Wikipedia page!

6) As promised (since our reblog of Zach Dionne’s great GQ article about WTF got partially confused with being written by us and we wanted something clearly by us about Maron at the Comedy Bureau), here’s our review of Marc Maron’s latest album “This Has To Be Funny”.
