Morning Debriefing 3/9/11
1) Norm MacDonald’s new hour long Comedy Central Special has moved from this weekend to Saturday March 26th at 11:30PM. This should make up for Charlie Sheen stealing Norm’s Twitter thunder.
3) The Nerdist Theater at Meltdown Comics… WHAT?!? Follow @nerdmelt down the comedy nerd rabbit hole to see some of the best comedy shows in LA.
4) Comedian Jesse Case explores the future of indie/alt comedy via what happened indie/alt music. READ IT. IT’S GOOD FOR YOU. [via Antithesis Comedy]
5) So all this Doug Stanhope buzz has recently come about because he’s releasing a new album called Oslo: Burning Bridges to Nowhere. Of course, this veritable wave of Stanhope is really all out-of-nowhere as it happened in Oslo and not anywhere near here, but hopefully the album’s release and distribution will change that.
6) Can’t get enough Action Figure Therapy? Why not get a shirt to show your pride in watching the youtube series sensation? That’s a thing that people do, right?
