News of the World

--It's August, which means it's time to enter the SNL ticket lottery.  Via, "Send an email in the month of August only to Please include all contact information and do not request a specific date. If you are selected, you will receive two tickets to a random show date and time. You may only send one email per household and all audience members must be at least 16 years of age. You will only be notified in the event that you are chosen." If you manage to get tix because you saw this here, it would be really chill if you invited me!

--Performer/author Rachel Shukert released her second memoir last week, Everything Is Going to Be Great. A huge crowd lined up for her book signing at McNally's in SoHo. Here's a recent interview with the budding literary star. SEE ALSO: Rachel in one of my favorite shows from 2008, Wasp Cove.

--ELSWHERE IN PUBLISHING: I'm reading through an advance copy of SEX: Our Bodies, Our Junk, and this one grabs you by the genitals at Page 1 and never lets go.  ALSO: In this very column, I mentioned that Moshe Kasher was shopping a memoir around -- he's found a publisher.  AND: Rachel Dratch has a "crazy story" to tell about her pregnancy, but she's saving it for a book.

--My real estate agent regretted to inform me that my bid for Conan O'Brien's duplex came in a little low. Coco sold it to some other dude.

--"Daniel Tosh is the new face of Comedy Central," says The Ratings. His numbers keep going up and up.

--If you like loose slots and Bill Cosby, the legendary comedian is doing a couple of shows this month at The Borgata. I'm half tempted to hop on one of those god forsaken Greyhound buses that leave from the Port Authority and see him.

--ONN staff writer Chris Kelly's new show Oh My God, I Heard You're Dying opens next Wednesday at The UCBT. It stars Lennon Parham, Leslie Meisel, Brandon Scott Jones, and many more.

--Jon Daly and Nick Kroll's pilot Rich Dicks was not picked up by Comedy Central.  I hear that they will try to release it when they can. Here's the short that lead to the pilot:

--Since most Apiary readers connect to their Motorola RAZR flip-phones via Bluetooth headset, you'll be happy to hear that popular earpiece manufacturer Jawbone is giving away 10 THOUSAND DOLLARS if you make a funny video and follow all of their rules.

--Looking to get a nice Chevy Chase face tattoo? Here's a design for you.

--The tone on the Aziz Ansari thread on AST is trending towards sour as Ansari reaches the uppermost echelon of the showbiz food chain.  One user complains about his show, "Tickets for Aziz are a recession-busting $49.50 with a $15 Service fee added to that." Another fan bemoans, "I first fell in love with Aziz when I heard his track on Invite Them Up like 4 years ago. And when you love something that is kind of small and relatively unknown like that I think it's natural to sort of feel extra connected to it and feel like it's 'yours.' And him hosting the MTV awards is the biggest sign yet that he's no longer 'mine' and is now 'everyone's,' which bums me out."

--Comedy Central has a hit on their hands with Ugly Americans. The network has ordered up 7 additional episodes.

--Because we have zero understanding of what's happening from scene to scene, we are grateful that Videogum's hilarious LOST recaps help us make sense of it.

--BIRTHDAY PARTEEZ: Sue Galloway and Zach Ward advance one additional year in age this week and Achilles Stamatelaky's blog is now 2.

--Get your limited edition Splinterheads "Deep Sixed" movie poster featuring The Amazing Steve & Wyoming today!

--Go see Moshe Kasher while he's in town. His speedy standup set at Union Hall this past Sunday was so fiery, our eyebrows got cinged to the point that our facial expression is now one of permanent surprise.  We hear he's in NY to pitch some kind of book.  Keep a watch on this guy!
