Hello, It’s late. I’ve toiled and toiled to find things for you to digest but the drought continues. I’m like a olde-timey prospector looking for love in all the wrong places or something. I just don’t know. Maybe I’m a man out of time, a man who just wants to find some things for tittererers to digest. Have I mentioned that it’s late? Quite late. Anyway, things are looking up I think? There are several promising things happening soon, not least of which is With Bob And David which we’ll talk more about below and also new Mindy Kaling things. See you after the picture of the lady.
1. Mindy Kaling
I’m a Mindy Kaling fan. The Mindy Project makes me laugh harder than most things and I’m a hard, hard laugher. I gave Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? four stars on goodreads.com. I’m going to patiently wait for season four of The Mindy Project to become available on Irish TV instead of viewing it through other means because creators deserve cash. I’m a fan. So here‘s a piece in The New Yorker from her new book Why Not Me? called A Perfectly Reasonable Request.
2. With Bob And David

The second most famous Bob And David are back soon! (The most famous are David Bowie and his 1978 bob haircut.) Here’s what I know so far. It’s going to be on Netflix from November 13th. David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, Paul F. Tompkins, Brian Posehn, Scott Aukerman, and others are involved. There’s a trailer. You just scrolled past it. Look up. The AV Club have more info here. Here’s Pre-Taped Call-In Show just because.

3. Steve Rannazzisi
Well, this is a weird one. Since at least 2009, Steve Rannazzisi from The League has been telling a story about how he was working in the south tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11 and his brush with death convinced him to move to LA and become a comedian. But it turns out he made it all up. The New York Times has all the details here. He seems to be genuinely contrite and god only knows why he decided to tell the story in the first place. Other, smarter people with closer ties to 9/11 (George W. Bush?) will have other, smarter things to say about this but what I, your overtired humour editor, will say is that this sounds like exactly the kind of thing his character would do on The League in order to befriend a football player. Exactly.
4. Sex With The Coen Brothers
And finally, for this week, here’s a video about what it would be like to have sex with the Coen Brothers by College Humor
