Morning Debriefing 8/10/11
1) Lopez Tonight will air it’s last episode on Thursday, which is incredibly unfortunate considering comedians like James Adomian and Brent Weinbach their late night TV debuts. Don’t miss an appearance tonight with David Koechner and tomorrow night in the final episode as Auggie Smith is scheduled to do a stand-up set (TBS 12AM).
2) Brody Stevens/@allthingsbrody was REALLY arrested outside of a Starbucks, but is now released. Whatever your opinion of Brody is, reading his Twitter feed is a must.
3) Hampton Yount is absolutely hilarious. No set up required here, just watch.
5) Reportedly, Bill Burr dropped in at Big Fish last night, a room known for people heckling you because he’s working on a set. If you’re a comedian in LA (or NY), think about that the next time you question why you’re wasting hours of your time waiting to go up at a room that you’re not a big fan of.
7) Doug Stanhope’s episode of Louie will air tomorrow, which will be interesting considering Stanhope has said that Louis C.K. cast him in a role where Stanhope can just be himself (FX 10:30PM).
