Local news meets comedy

The Ricky Gervais podcast kills me.  It's comical on so many levels.  And the very fact that it is so much about comedy makes its presence as part of The Guardian's arsenal feel kind of weird but also very appropriate.  Jeff Jarvis picked up on it:

This opens all sorts of horizons for a newspaper as news-and-entertainment venture. When you think about it, why shouldn’t The Times have produced Seinfeld: sophisticated New York jokes for sophisticated New Yorkers?

I don't know what The San Francisco Chronicle could do to match it for us here on the left coast.  I wonder if local comedian Robin Williams could reignite his career this way.
