The old boys club of late night talk shows is about to be injected with an atomic shot of millennial female. Welcome to the final taping of Marty O’Malley’s Early Late Show, where heir apparent to the host chair, comedienne Sarah Goldberg (Kat Letwin ) is about the fill the very large shoes of reluctant retiree Marty O’Malley (Alon Nashman). The kicker? The Early Late Show is going LIVE, for the first time in 22 years.
To commemorate the passing of the torch, long time executive producer of The Early Late Show has organized to have Marty and Sarah share the host chair. A mistake, that may be the first and last of her career, after a freudian slip throws the taping into chaos.
Housed in media mogul Moses Znaimer Zoomerplex, The Zoomer Live Theatre, will serve as both a theatre and TV studio for Late Night. The theatrical event will be recorded live for broadcast on Vision TV, providing an interesting meta theatrical TV experiment for both the audience and creative team. Kat Sandler’s original script, which won the Fringe 24 hour playwriting contest in 2014 caught Znaimer’s interest due to its unique examination of ageism in the media and entertainment sector. The generational partnership between Canada’s best known media mogul and it’s hottest young playwright has created the perfect breeding ground for the next theatrical smash hit of the year.
