Morning Debriefing 9/12/11

1) Deadline reports that TBS orders a half-hour comedy pilot from Conan O’Brien [via PopCultureBrain].

2) It’s official, Funny or Die & Earwolf have joined forces today to bring comedy to the online masses on the video and audio fronts. There’s even a “How Podcasts are Made” FoD exclusive to commemorate the event. Unfortunately, according to sources, will not be going by Funny Ear and/or Die Wolf. 

Where Do Podcasts Come From? – watch more funny videos

3) In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve done a little housekeeping in updating both our calendars at the top of our main page as well as our comedy venue calendar list. Now, you can have ready knowledge of what’s happening comedy wise throughout the current month in LA as well as ready links to the Comedy Sportz LA Theater, Dangerfield’s 2, and Good Time Comedy Club. Or you could just check the Morning Debriefing everyday… your choice?

4) This new episode of Henry’s Kitchen makes me want Henry Phillips to have a restaurant.

5) Patton Oswalt didn’t go to the Toronto International Film Festival and started a hashtag on Twitter #FakeTIFF2011Films and then hilarity insued.

6) In case you had a pool going, here’s the comedy winners at the Creative Arts Emmys.

7) Jena Friedman, who now writes for Letterman, posted a new episode of her hilarious series Ted & Gracie that everyone should watch. 

8) Tracy Morgan back to normal, that is “normal” for Tracy Morgan?
