1) Tig Notaro kills with impressions on Conan.

2) Both Patton Oswalt’s Finest Hour and Bridesmaids are available for purchase today. Maybe you should break what bank you have at the moment.

3) The Paul F. Tompkins’ Dead Authors Podcast made its premiere today with its first episode featuring Andy Richter as Emily Dickinson. Finally.

4) Comedy Royal just posted their next issue. Even though it’s unclear as to what it is, it’s pretty friggin’ amazing.

5) Eddie Pepitone doing commercial auditions during the zombie apocalypse for Joe Wagner
