The Skinny with Peter DeGiglio: BIG, GAY, RUSSIAN OLYMPICS Set for Under St. Marks, 1/29
Imagine if Meet the Press crashed into the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. The end result would be "The Skinny with Peter DeGiglio", a comedy news talk show that tackles a new hot button sociopolitical issue each month; often ripped right from the headlines.
For each month's show "The Skinny" features two guests: The Skinny Exclusive, a local artist commissioned to create a performance centered specifically around that month's theme, and the Very Special Guest, a high-profile figure from the worlds of journalism, literature, politics, academia, grassroots, or the media.
January's show will cover the controversial Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia and feature Very Special Guest Russian Studies expert and Emmy Award winner Dr. Beth Knobel and Skinny Exclusive Performer openly gay hip-hop dancer and competitive gymnast Lucille "Frak" Graciano.
