Morning Debriefing 8/30/11

1) Date Rape Audience Monologist’s (from DCM ASSSSCAT) identity is revealed. Also, he left Facebook like that’s going to do something.

2) It’s a new Henry’s Kitchen!!!

3) David Koechner would rather wrestle Jay Leno than promote A Good Fashioned Orgy.

4) Did you know Jim Jefferies & Eddie Ifft had a podcast? Now you do.

5) Damn, we love The Midnight Show. Here’s their sketch about home invasion.

Home Invasion! – watch more funny videos

6) So the Internet convened yesterday and decided Joe Mande wrote the funniest thing (that just happened to be about Gilbert Arenas).  We agree.

7) Read how Jeff MacKinnon is having all the fun in Edinburgh at the Fringe Festival in his 12th and 13th parts of coverage for Laughspin.

8) Splitsider makes a solid list of podcasts that should exist. We could go on about adding more, but our first thought was that Joe Wengert should have a podcast called “Before Therapy”.

9) Mainstream comedy success? More like… I have no fucking idea what a large cross section of America wants in their comedy.
