The Curtain Call Show, a brand new Italian late night talk show in pure NYC style!
Within each 50minute-episode the show winds between interviews of celebrity guests (mainly from both the Artistic Side and the Business Side of the world of Entertainment, Arts and Culture), edgy musical acts, games, sketches and recurring segments.
The winning formula also includes unlikely guest introductions which bring a peek behind-the-scenes (like the backstage, the green room, outdoor and many absurd locations thanks to a huge green-screen limbo) into their daily lives and their worlds.
This explosive mix is completed by the house band which provides great classics and original, improvised music throughout the show.
The show, for its themes, is set in a theatrical stage, in a cross between a television studio and a theatre show thanks to theatrical and off-stage objects, equipment and scenarios!
The show is filmed in front of a live studio audience that is involved from time to time by the host.
