The Jackie Simon Show! is a bawdy satire of the day-time television talk show culture and features a cameo appearance by broadcast legend Joe Franklin. Complete with cameramen and production assistants, the play is set in a television studio at a "live taping" of The Jackie Simon Show! where the Russo Family exposes their hilarious tabloid-worthy secrets. In the grand tradition of Sally Jessy Raphael, Maury Povich, Ricki Lake and Montel Williams, The Jackie Simon Show! showcases a part of American culture we hate to look at but just can't stop watching.
