For the uninitiated, Guy created a brilliant show format where guests have to compete to be the most interesting talk show guest, complete with a panel of judges. It’s been one of our favorite things to see in LA for years.
Going from live show to TV show, Talk Show the Game Show is now being kicked into high gear with more exciting bells and whistles as shown in this trailer.
