Also in November, CTB started booking for the very funny internet talk show, "ANYTIME with Bob Kushell." The show ingeniously takes the best elements of everyone’s favorite latenight talkshows to the comic bare bones…including the studio. ANYTIME is a fully-featured five-minute comically compact show, filmed in a garage in Van Nuys, where today’s stars and entertainment personalities are invited to stop by for a fun, relaxed interview that takes less than a half-hour of their time. Bob Kushell, the Emmy-award nominated writer/producer (Dream On, The Simpsons, 3rd Rock From the Sun, Malcolm in the Middle, Grounded for Life, Hidden Hills and Jake in Progress, Samantha Who?) presides as amiable host in the garage, which has been decked out with an elaborate set designed by Emmy-Award winning production designer Glenda Rovello, as well as top-of-the-line lighting, cameras and yes, even air-conditioning. See who’s already stopped by the garage… Here is a look at two complete episodes, featuring Neil Patrick Harris and Jennifer Esposito.
