Celebrity Talk Shows I Would Gladly Host

A weekly celebrity talk show set in my bathtub where I interview magazine photos of famous people with the eyes cut out. No cameras.

Chelsea Handler wearing a plain linen shift and screaming, screaming.

A talk show where every guest is forced to sing as much of “Danny Boy” as they can remember and once they miss a word they have to leave.
