Cool Events at the Paley Center

So I hadn’t heard of The Paley Center for Media1 before today, and- This just in: The Museum of Television & Radio apparently changed their name to the Paley Center for Media. Nobody tells me anything…

Anyway, the Beverly Hills branch is hosting talks with some cool people, including the casts of some great shows:

Wednesday, April 9, 2008; 7:00 pm
David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, and “cast and creative team” appearing.
I don’t know why they don’t list the supporting cast; it has a much bigger part than it did on The X Files, which I think Bones is meant to replace. Except, of course, for The Lone Gunmen.

The Riches
Friday, April 18, 2008; 7:00 pm
Eddie Izzard, Minnie Driver, and “cast and creative team” appearing.
I haven’t seen this show, but Eddie Izzard’s stand-up is hilarious.

The Sarah Silverman Program

George Carlin
Thursday, May 8, 2008; 7:00 pm
I always wanted to see George do stand-up at Club Bene in NJ. We’d always see him in the coming attractions when we caught Adrian Belew concerts there. As I’m pretty sure Club Bene is no more, maybe this is my chance.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito appearing.

This is the talk I most want to see – why the fuck is it scheduled for Monday? To get to Beverly Hills from OC by 7pm, I pretty much have to take a vacation day to avoid the traffic. Sux 2 b me.

Dave Attell and Louis CK

Just a quick recommendation for two hilarious HBO comedy specials: Dave Attell: Captain Miserable and Louis CK – Shameless. Attell’s special just aired and will be in reruns for a while. Shameless came out almost a year ago, but I think it’s still available on HBO On Demand. If not, you can rent it on DVD.

I’m not sure I’d call this filthy comedy, but after watching them you’ll never look at whale semen or duck vaginas in the same light… On second thought, it’s filthy.
