--Comix's record label Live at Comix is getting set to offer an Ophira Eisenberg CD on May 11th called As Is. Also from Live at Comix: Myq Kaplan's album, which dropped TODAY.

--There's an ad in this week's New York Times Magazine for Mt. Sinai medical center that states, "When Tom Davis, a former writer and performer on Saturday Night Live, was diagnosed with tongue cancer, he refused traditional treatment. It would have left him disfigured and unable to speak normally. Instead, he went to Mt. Sinai, where Dr. Genden was able to remove the tumor via minimally invasive robotic surgery. We saved his voice, his life, and his career."

--ABOUT THAT CHERRY BATTLE VIDEO ON SNL: Okay, so TV Squad wrote, "This sketch made me cry with laughter. I was already laughing uncontrollably at the spitting back and forth and super-intense facial expressions, but the singing cherry caught me completely off-guard and sent me over the edge." and The NY Daily News said, "Gabourey Sidibe saves first SNL hosting gig with Andy Samburg's Cherry Battle," which made us wonder whether Bret Michaels was filing all of these write ups.

--After trudging through a couple of spirit draining stinkers at the Tribeca Film Festival, we found one gem and we're getting close to declaring that the fest's best comedy is Zonad.

--DID YOU KNOW?: According to Amazon, people who buy The Best of "Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen" frequently also buy The Comedians of Comedy DVD.
