That combination of traits may help explain why Brady--who performs Friday and Saturday at Coconuts in Anaheim--has experienced a blast of career acceleration and some high-profile media exposure just in the last few months: * He signed with a management firm in August.

As host of "Turn It Up," MTV's fast-paced rock 'n' roll game show, comedian Jordan Brady dishes up what he calls a "veritable potpourri" of music trivia questions, complete with video clips and songs from a live house band. Brady taped 65 episodes of the show, which airs at midnight Monday through Thursday, during marathon taping sessions last June. And how good at music trivia is the young man with all the answers?

Culture Monster headed to Maria Bamford's Eagle Rock kitchen on a recent Saturday evening. It was a relatively intimate affair: just Bamford and her parents, Joel and Marilyn Bamford, who live in Duluth, Minn., Bamford's two pugs and us.  Oh and about a dozen production crew members mulling about. Why? Bamford was shooting her first direct-to-fan comedy special, which she will release on Nov. 28 through Chill.com , an L.A.-based social video site.

The biggest news--or at least the biggest names--on the Orange County comedy scene this fall evoke a sense of deja vu : Both Jay Leno (who headlines Anaheim's Celebrity Theatre on Nov. 20) and Gallagher (who plays the same venue Dec. 2-3) are returning to the area less than a year after their last local appearances.

Tatyana M. Ali, who plays sweet but very privileged Ashley Banks on NBC's popular "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," may attend a private girls' school, but that's where her lifestyle and Ashley's part ways. "My real life isn't anything like hers," she says from her modest San Fernando Valley home, where she lives with her mother and two sisters, Anastasia, 11, and Kimberly, 8.

The shoot for "An American Girl," a dark comedy about a dysfunctional family, had kept Friedman on the dusty and rusty set 14 hours a day for weeks. "Oh, the stress," she said.

The weeklong boom begins Sunday, when Fractured Mirror, an enormously gifted local comedy troupe, has its grand opening at the L.P.R. Dinner Theatre (also known as the Brobdingnag Theatre) in Tustin. Although it draws reviews wherever it performs, Fractured Mirror has long been under-appreciated in its own back yard.
