Some other comedy news and tidbits that caught my eye includes:

  • Sacha Baron Cohen is going to play Queen's Freddie Mercury in a biopic? Wow. (Deadline)
  • Mike Drucker spells out how comedians perceive themselves, versus how the rest of the world perceives them. No one is spared. Just like a Nintendo game. (The Apiary)
  • Lisa Lampanelli wasn't the only insult comic to take over TMZ on the TV. Here's a clip of Jeffrey Ross doing so, too. (TMZ)
  • Bill Maher got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and for some reason, Seth MacFarlane and Larry King showed up to watch it happen. (LA Times)
