Morning Debriefing 8/25/11
1) Jonah Ray’s Jonah’s Arcade was going to be a Comedy Central show, but sadly it’s not. Watch the pilot episode and maybe you’ll be inspired to start a letter writing campaign.
3) Hey Internet, Can’t You Take a Fucking Joke? A piece by us for Laughspin.
4) Tonight, Bill Burr will be on The Late Show with David Letterman (CBS 11:35PM), Louie will be back at it’s normal time, but will go an entire hour (FX 10:30PM), NTSF:SD:SUV will have a strip club fight (Adult Swim 12:15AM), and The Green Room with Paul Provenza airs its infamous Tony Clifton episode (Yes, the one with the clip above) (Showtime 11PM).
4) Grantland’s already sniffing out Razzie front runners. Oh, what the human race would do without bad movies…
5) LA Comedy abroad and abroad-ish
Jeff MacKinnon’s recap for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on days 8 & 9 on Laughspin
Travels with Kyle Kinane, Dispatch #3 on Splitsider
6) Connected Comedy lists the 3 Things Comedians Are More Afraid of Than They Should Be. Yeah, tellin’ like it is.
