Comedy Monday and My 3000th Post!

The Line, Ep 1: The FutureSpace Showdown Begins

On Monday, December 15 (tonight), Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis and SNL writer Simon Rich, will appear at the Wired store at 15 W. 18th Street to promote their “new” online series The Line. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served, 100-person limit. RSVP ASAP to THELINERSVP@wired.com to reserve your spot.

I’m not sure why there is a sudden PR push for this series as it isn’t actually new anymore, in fact, you can watch all 7 episodes over here on YouTube or on Crackle.com (where it originally premiered in July 2008). I actually meant to blog about The Line back in the summer when the NYTimes ran an article on it.

Also, on Monday night (December 15) at The Bell House there is a comedy benefit to help Save Darfur featuring:

JOHN OLIVER
GREG GIRALDO
TODD BARRY
EUGENE MIRMAN
EDDIE BRILL
ANDRES DUBOUCHET
KURT BRAUNOHLER
and more TBA

Hosted by: LIAM McENEANEY

Music from:
A BRIEF VIEW OF THE HUDSON

TALLY HALL

PLUS: The Comedy Nerd Raffle (see all the prizes after the jump)

THIS IS MY 3000th POST
On a final note, according to the WP dashboard, this is my 3000th post and for those of you who jumped on board a little bit later, here’s what post no. 1 looked like:

Getting My Blog On
This is it. The official first entry of my new blog. Saw Napoleon Dynamite on Friday, it was awesome. This site has the best lines from the movie, it’s pretty sweet!

That’s nothing to be embarrassed about right? I guess I’ll start working on something profound to say for my 4000th post right now. But seriously folks, thanks for stopping by, I know there are a lot of places you can go while you are supposed to be working, and I do appreciate everyone that comes here and reads my nonsense, emails, comments, or clicks on an ad (perhaps I appreciate you most of all Mr. Scarecrow). Anyway, it’s been a lot of fun so far, sleep depriving, but fun nonetheless. See you at 4000!
