MyDamnChannel.com 3rd Anniversary Party @ The NYTVF - 9.24.10

Photo courtesy of My Damn ChannelMy Damn Channel, the online home for original web series produced by the likes of comedy gurus like Harry Shearer, David Wain, A.D. Miles and, uh, Coolio, celebrated the 3rd anniversary of the site's existence at The NY Television Festival with a Q&A with Harry and freeflowing beer and wine in the lobby of Chelsea's SVA Theater.

NOTES

--During the panel, Shearer called My Damn Channel a "revolutionary business model" in that, when working with the site, you receive no notes, have the funding to create what you want to create, and receive a generous split of ad revenues.

--Harry spent some time plugging The Big Uneasy, a factual documentary he produced which promises to tell THE TRUTH about Hurricane Katrina and the destruction of New Orleans.  (Was Katrina an inside job??) It's running through September 30th at the NYC IFC center

--Harry cited longtime collaborater Tom Leopold as the funniest person he knows. According to Wikipedia, Tom once bought a house from former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. That is sort of funny I guess.

--SPOTTED: Once the panel wrapped, the audience spilled into the theater's foyer where I got SICK VIEWS of party people like Craig Bierko, Jon Friedman, Catie Lazarus, Matt Koff, Justin Tyler, Michelle Vargas and perennial NYTVF contender Dan McNamara.

Flyers for The Big Uneasy

Craig Bierko stopped by and it seems like he was saying something really important here.
