GREAT SHOW, BIG GUEST AND EVEN A BIGGER TABLE!
Kevin Pollak's Chat Show is a great glimps into comedy, Hollywood and the many talents of Kevin Pollak. Kevin and his staff manage to bring on guest that actually have something interesting to say with out trying to jam a poduct down the viewers throats. The nature of the show allows each guest to relax and carry on a conversation with the ease and the feeling you our out having drinks with good friends. I can't say enough about how the show has evolved but has never lost it's charm. One Problem- I view the show on a IPOD Nano where the picture quality is pretty good except when Kevin's support team cuts to the wide shot to show Kevin and his guest sitting at the round table. On a Nano, all I get with that shot is a big round table with Kevin's nose on one end and the guest glass of water on the other end. I'm waiting for the table to have it's own sponsorship at some point. Take some time out of your hetic day and enjoy yourself, check the Kevin Pollack's Chat Show!!!!!!
Finally, a decent use for the internet
A talented and thankful host conversing with the guests, not just hitting some flack's talking points, and letting said conversation grow and progress organically. It helps to like the host but he operates so well in the format. Excellent. So nice to see what happens when the dollars aren't the concern.
Love this show!!
This is a really entertaining, informative show, done in a great conversation manner. Much better than the usual 5-10 minutes you usually see on the late night talk shows. Kevin Pollak is as good in this as he is in his movies & stand-up...that is a compliment by the way. Keep up the good work!!
