Morning Debriefing 9/25/11

1) Showtime has a new comedy, House of Lies, coming next year with Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, and more. What’s it about? There’s skewering of corporate America and then, apparently, they have big balls….

2) Whether you normally watch 60 Minutes or not, tonight wouldn’t be one to miss as South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone are being profiled. (CBS 7PM)

3) The Beards of Comedy are going to have another album, “Cardio-Mix” dropping soon!

4) Here’s the official details for the ACME Comedy Theatre OPEN MIC.

5) We obviously have a lot to say about awards in comedy as we wrote about it at both Laughspin and the Nerdist this week.

6) Speaking of the Nerdist, if you missed their TV debut or a chance to DVR it, you can now download it.
