Morning Debriefing 9/9/11

1) CNN takes a look at comedy after 9/11 with Bill Burr, Chris Hardwick, Marc Maron, and Rob Riggle. [via Laughspin]

2) A Kumail Nanjiani bit about heroin gets the cartoon pony treatment

3) Expanded thoughts on the Oschack-USC debacle on Laughspin.

4) “Broke Beast”, an art-music-performance extravaganza on Oct. 15th, is taking submissions for stand-up comedy.

5) The season finale of the Compatish, which pits the gang in a contest of painting trees, can be decided by whose painting is sold for the most money on eBay. So far, someone is going to pay $10 for Adam’s “snatch tree”.

6) Dan Dringle gives you a couple great reasons to buy a Motorola Tablet and maybe a hug.

7) You may think that doing comedy on a megaphone outdoors at a park might not work, but we wholeheartedly disagree.

8) Puddin’-“Hot Pocket”
