Confessions of a Talk Show Host
Bill Boggs

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Learn what really goes on when you sit in the chair of a TV host and relive the funniest, most embarrassing back-stage goings on from a master storyteller who has been there and interviewed thousands of guests on live television. This multi-media presentation takes the audience behind the scenes of the seldom explored world of the talkshow host. Four-time Emmy Award winner, Bill Boggs, reaches into his archive of historic video clips and combines that with reenactments of celebrity tirades, mistaken guests, inappropriate propositions and a hilarious array of other stories. "A talk only Boggs could give. Miss it at your peril" (Wall Street Journal), "When storyteller Boggs is on stage, it's like being at a dinner party with a great host" (The New York Post).
