So what sort of people should be on a talkshow? All talkshows have themes. Previously there have been some guests who didn’t work out, such as:
“Oh no I’ve lost my voice” None of these guests said anything which caused a huge riot in the crowd. Funnily enough this actually boosted ratings and the next week the theme was “Oops I accidentally became involved in a riot on tv”.
WORST TALKSHOW EPISODES EVER!“The Invisible Man Family Reunion” This episode was listened to by millions but only seen by 9.
Another one was a talkshow hosts nightmare! All the guests had temperamental phobias of answering questions!
Plastic Surgery Special – A guest had lips that looked like kebabs but thanks to plastic surgery their problem was solved…until they appeared on the show, where the studio lights melted the lips beyond recognition.
Psychic Special – A guest had E.S.P and clairvoyant skills and answered all the hosts questions before they were even asked.
Body Odour – “My Feet Smell Like Danish Blue” – Unfortunately this show didn’t last five minutes. Within 20 seconds the crowd were gagging and fainting from the smell.
IS IT REAL OR IS IT FAKE?
There are often rumours that talkshow are fake – that actors – not guests – are hired to make the show. None of the guests on Simply Sophie are actors! Some of our much loved Sunset Covers have appeared as guests including Silver Lining and his arch rival and lover Bad Mood. Grampa has appeared when he claimed that Giles Gordon was an alien and Don found a potato chip that looked like Elvis!
One of my favourites was when Antonia appeared in front of an intergalactic live satellite hookup that covered 638 planets, and revealed her love of Mr Dorsey – classic!
