OC Couple’s Cell Phone is So Money

GMARemember all that business in Swingers about the (310) vs. (818)? Well, it’s been wonderfully and accidentally updated thanks to a couple that moved at the beginning of the year from Cleveland to the OC.

A wacky cell phone adventure involving Bob Gray and his girlfriend Liza Foster is now deservedly making the media rounds. After Gray inherited the 310 digits of writer-comedian Nick Swardson, this pair was able to make the Paris Hilton 2011 birthday party invite list and connect with various other show business folk.  They are currently turning their one-degree-of-separation experiences into a movie script on the advice of Swardson pal Adam Sandler, who called in one day looking for the previous cell number owner.

You will rarely hear off-camera crew members of a morning TV show laugh as heartily as they do in the GMA footage when Gray gleefully recounts his exchange with the gatekeepers of the aforementioned Hilton party. (“Park it!”)

Fabulous stuff.

Funny man Rob Brackenridge sent us this email:

My friend and fellow comedian, Bill Devlin, recently had open heart surgery. He had a rare heart disease called Endocarditis (bacteria on the heart valve). He going to be good as new and better than ever, but after the surgery and 20 days in Cedar Sinai he has a large medical bill even after his insurance paid their part. In an effort to help him out I am organizing a benefit at the World Famous Improv in Hollywood this Sunday, Nov. 16th at 6:30pm. There will be a fantastic lineup of comedians including: Kathleen Madigan (From Last Comic Standing and the Tonight Show), Skippy Green (Flip Schultz‘s character), KP Anderson and Greg Fidler (From E!’s “The Soup”), Lenny Schmidt, and yours truly Rob Brackenridge. We might have some special guests such as Drew Carey and Nick Swardson.

More after the break.
