DEVELOPING: Remember when MySpace introduced that fancy new MySpace Comedy hub all the way back in December? Er. Well. Ugh. Yesterday the company laid off half of its entire workforce, about 500 employees, including the executive editor of the MySpace Comedy hub. Writers were told to stop pitching. But stand-up comedian Ben Gleib has a contract to continue producing original videos for the site. So, if nothing else, we'll still have those to look forward to and keep clicking over there? When I hear more, you'll know more. UPDATED: While the executive editor for the comedy hub got de-friended from MySpace, Randi Siegel remains with the company as Director of Myspace Comedy Relations and Talent.
