Here's a couple of things that you may already have seen....
First of all Liam Mullone's glossary of terms for the Edinburgh Fringe. A lot of comics have just had to leave the bubble and some will find the come down harder than others. I may have to write a longer piece about the ridiculousness of the 'star review' system.
Second - after the Essex lion 'furore', here's Louis CK talking about lions (clip starts half way through a joke - sorry about that, but he does get to lions eventually.)
Third, and probably the one you'll take away with you, Patton Oswalt giving a 'keynote' speech at Just For Laughs about the state of, for want of a better term, 'the industry'.
