The Humor Mill TV broadcast linear channel today has announced that one of their flagship shows, titled Box Seats will debut its first LIVE show at the World Famous Caroline’s on Broadway in New York, NY on Aug 23rd with comedians Rodney Perry, James “Talent” Harris, Craig “Fig” Figueiredo, and Mike Shawn, and will be immediately followed up with a comedy show to be hosted by James “Talent” Harris.
Box Seats is normally a 60-minute sports/comedy talk show that could best be compared to conversations heard in barbershops nationwide. The show comprises the comedians mentioned above as they discuss the hottest topics in sports-with their take and comedy undertones. Sometimes there are interviews with athletes, actors, and other comedians depending on the day and the topic. The live show is currently being broadcast on Humor Mill TV.
Caroline’s On Broadway will be the first step in an eventual tour with Box Seats, as it has the ability to hit several cities and to rotate the comedians per show upon availability. Box Seats also has the unique ability to be a completely different show because as the sports news changes, so will the topics of the show. This will give the audience a new perspective every show and will become a “must-see” comedy show.
