Morning Debriefing 6/1/11
1) Due to underwhelming traffic, we, here at the Comedy Bureau, got the hint, so the Morning Debriefing is back (though it will probably never be posted in the official “morning”).
2) The Los Angeles Comedy Festival is accepting submissions for their 10th edition taking place this fall. More details to follow soon.
3) Check out comedy podcasting hub Earwolf’s new site! A fantastic thing got pretty damn fantastic!!!
4) Kyle Cease has a new video to push a self-help brand of comedy on his “Wake the Hell Up Comedy Tour” [via Punchline]. "He’s doing something pretty new in comedy. He’s using it to get a point across.“-testimonial from girl who has obviously not watched Bill Hicks or any number of comedians. It’s only a matter of time until a parody comes out.
5) Brand new to Conan: The Pardo Patrol. Let’s hope this becomes an actual regular segment on Conan.
6) Behind the story of Camp Crystal Lake, you’ll find Tom McCaffrey, Barry Rothbart, Matt Fulchiron keeping the camp open despite Jason killing more people. This video should be the next installment/re-boot of the Jason franchise.
