Morning Debriefing 9/16/11

1) SXSW is having some comedy showcases in LA. We’re sorry that we dropped the ball keeping you up to date on this one.

2) Nick Turner will perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight (NBC 12:35AM). TUNE IN OR DIE*. *in the FoD sense, not literally.

3) An insightful chat with the Sklar Brothers and what alternative comedy was and is.

4) Splitsider reports that Bucky Larson is gaining heat for a Razzie. Good.

5) So in biding our sweet time, another open mic popped up in Little Tokyo
