Post Brunch Update 2/13/11

1) A Letter to Neil Hamburger.  In this article, some people forget that it’s comedy and are personally offended, which, in very sparing occasions, I can understand, but what about holding five old fashioned glasses with various cocktails, over greased hair, and an ill fitting suit is serious?

2) Montreal Just for Laughs Callbacks start tomorrow.  Here’s the schedule thus far.

3) At the Comedy Central Stages this week: Set List w/Troy Conrad pilot taping on Tues. and Smartest Man in the World LIVE w/Greg Proops.  BOTH FREE at 8PM.  Call (323) 960-5519 for reservations. 6539 Santa Monica Ave., Los Angeles, CA

4) Live Tweeting the Grammys, you better believe that a multitude of jokes will be posted tonight and the Comedy Bureau will be there for all of it.  Follow @thecomedybureau for the funny tonight instead of just watch the Grammys sans commentary.

7) Recently: The Grammys are on tonight.  Let’s kick it off with what Sean Patton has to say about Lady Gaga.

8) I had my first brush with fame yesterday and totally acted nonplussed about it like a famous person would.  The only thing missing in this equation: $$$$ (like… any of it).
