Nasim Pedrad, Seth Meyers and SNL writer/comedian John Mulaney were among those who attended the opening of Mike Birbiglia's new one-man show "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend". Birbiglia's show, running through May 15 at the Barrow Street Theatre in New York, has received tremendous acclaim and is a must-see for anyone in the New York area. To buy tickets, click here.

We all love WTF with Marc Maron, right? Well, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader recently recorded a live episode of WTF with the likes of Eric Drysdale, Sarah Vowell and Chuck Klosterman and the episode is now available for WTFers with premium subscriptions or upgraded apps. While it will be released to the free feed soon enough, I thought I'd just give a heads up to any eager beaver out there who can't wait that long. Check out the info here.
First and foremost, many congratulations to Kristen Wiig who was named Best Comedy Actress - TV at the inaugural Comedy Awards last night. She beat out a formidable line-up of comedy superstarlets including Tina Fey, Betty White, Jane Lynch and Jane Krakowski to take the top honour. Elsewhere, Saturday Night Live lost out in Best Sketch/Alternative Comedy Series to Children's Hospital and in Best Comedy Directing - TV to Modern Family. SNL still managed to harbour a significant presence at the show, however, with Bill Hader presenting an award and The Lonely Island teaming up with Akon to perform I Just Had Sex. Pictures from the event are included after the jump.
My life as a TV pitch -
"While all the other kids are out getting up to mischief, Amy stays indoors watching PBS documentaries and clips of Furry Vengeance, wondering if Brendan Fraser will ever get his act together."
