Morning Debriefing 9/11/11

1) The Floodlamp Open Meg[aphone] Lives!!! (Yes, LA’s premier outdoor comedy open mic was politely cut off by the cops, but will be back next Friday!)

2) A funny thing happened while Justin Ian Daniels was at the Charlie Sheen Roast Taping for Laughpsin

3) Not enough Paul F. Tompkins in your Sunday? Thought so…

Here’s Tompkins as a puppet in Ford commercials opposite John Ross Bowie [via CNU]

& as his infamous Cake Boss character at the Up Late with Adam Fisher show this past Friday.

4) Somehow we missed this and we sincerely apologize: Sean Green (The Comedy Garage) dropped his album The Whiskey Dick over a week ago. Please buy/download.

Sean Green : Sean Green the Whiskey Dick

5) Once again, there’s no more Ultimate Free & Cheap LA Comedy List from as the site has been discontinued. For all of your comedy needs, free, cheap, and just all around great, check the calendars and numerous updates at the Comedy Bureau.
