  1. Thanks for posting this very informative interview about how the "Game Show" functions.
    Lovely lady that talked to Charlie also.
    Just hope I can understand Charlie when he talks so fast LOL.
    Sounds really fun and one evening I think I have a front row seat!!!!
    Looking forward toward seeing the show.
    Ihope you have full house to the end of the term.

  2. Love it! Oh, how I wish I could go to Kansas and see Charlie. Great interview that just makes me want to see it all the more.

  3. Like this interview. Enjoy seeing him on tv. (looking smart in those glasses) Sounds like such a fun show. He is definitely charming enough to be a game show host. Is that similar to a politician? Sorry just couldn't resist. Sounds really neat with that story within a story thing happening. Would enjoy that twist. Way to go Charlie for doing something challenging. When Jeannie and Liane go, hope they get to be contestants. Front row seat huh! Have fun! PS: Swing by and pick me up on your way. ;)

  4. Wish I could go too, Jeannie, but soooo excited for Liane! It sounds very intriguing and a lot of fun. Seeing Charlie perform live on stage is always an amazing experience.
    And I agree, Liane...Miss Shen is STUNNING!! Enjoy the rest of your run, Charlie, and best wishes.

  5. Echoing the crowd here...between the rave reviews and interviews, "Game Show" really looks like something I would enjoy. Plus, Charlie is doing a great job of informing me of assorted historic sites should I make the trek (after all, I do visit historic sites when traveling to see him perform).

    Enjoy the rest of your run, Charlie, and best wishes!

  6. A show within a show. Sounds very cool! Great interview. Enjoy seeing him on tv. So happy that everyone is enjoying "Game Show". Making me wish i was going too. Enjoy Liane & Charlie! Happy Holidays everyone!

  7. Somehow, I showed up as Anonymous on my comment...but in case anyone was wondering, it was written by Karen the History Prof.

  8. I'm glad you got the opportunity to come visit Overland Park. I wonder what was your favorite part? When you go back to L.A. What will you say about Overland Park?
    I thought I was the only one out there who knew who Teagan and Sara were!!!

Our special guest will be Charlie's friend, the very charming, Jack Maxwell.  Jack is the Host of the extremely entertaining, funny and successful show on The Travel Channel, The Booze Traveler!  We are thrilled to have Jack on the show to talk to us all about his new TV show. He just finished his first season of the show and has been picked up for a second season!

At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process. If you haven't seen the show, you must check it out the website for #BoozeTraveler or watch some of the episodes online or on The Travel Channel. Check your …

"RIP Cory.  Until we treat alcoholism and other mental health problems as compassionately as we treat cancer, there will be other Corys."

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday.“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. He was 31 years old.
