Morning Debriefing 7/5/11
1) So roasts have indeed lost class, like I said so, as Comedy Central announced it will be roasting Charlie Sheen in LA in September.
2) Keep watch close for this: “@JenKirkman If you guys are wondering why I am on Twitter all the time, I’m writing a book, due out in 2012. I’m alone all day, need constant breaks.”
5) The Sunset Grill Open Mic in Hollywood is back. Thurs-Sun. around 7PM, if you can put up with it, at 7439 W. Sunset Blvd., a few other open mics are within walking distance of it.
“It’s a good sign that people trust comedians more than journalists.”-Paul Provenza on In the Arena’s blog on CNN.com
