The hilarious Comedy Central Show Tosh O resumed its second season on June 2 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Tosh.0 features the razor sharp humor from comedian Daniel Tosh and delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredible ingenious in this weekly, topical series. The second season of “Tosh.0” is averaging 1.8 million total viewers and is the most watched show in its timeslot among men 18-24 and men 18-34. We are working with Tosh.0 on their special “Web Redemption” videos, which gives subjects of infamous viral videos a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they’ve become synonymous – check out some of the recent web redemptions below:

Sunday night was David Hasselhoff’s hilarious initiation into the small club of people to be roasted on Comedy Central. It was great fun working with Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions and Elizabeth Porter of Comedy Central. Tune in to Comedy Central Sunday, August 15 to watch The Hoff take a good roasting from George Hamilton, Hulk Hogan, Jerry Springer, and many others!
 This month's issue of O Magazine is out and sure to make a great impression. CTB is proud to have stood by the magazine since the beginning! Our wonderful O editor, Susan Casey, was profiled in the New York Times this month. Congratulations to Susan!
 
 
CTB and Young Hollywood are going strong! Young Hollywood continues to deliver a closer look at celebrities in a more intimate and relaxed fashion. With behind the scenes interviews, set visits, giveaways, and live events, YH can only continue to widen its audience. This July alone, YH saw the likes of Brandon Boyd, Jordin Sparks and Outkast’s Big Boi make appearances. It’s only been a couple of days into August and already Giovanni Ribisi, Gabriel Macht, and Criss Angel have stopped by the studio. 






It’s an honor to be working with the smart and talented women behind Events of the Heart. We look forward to spreading the word about heart disease in the hopes of women everywhere becoming more aware of number one killer of females. 

Every minute, a woman suffers a heart attack.
  • Heart Disease beats out all cancers and Alzheimers combined as the number one health threat for women
  • 60 percent of total stroke deaths occur in women, particularly starting at the age of 35
  • One third of all deaths in women are the result of heart disease and 86 million women die from this disease each year. 

Central Talent Booking is proud to announce our collaboration with Events of the Heart in addressing these issues.  

Events of the Heart is a non-profit organization dedicated to using the creative arts to have women stand together and demand the education, awareness, and the screening they deserve to ensure a healthy heart.

Cofounded by Pamela Serure and Carole Isenberg, Events of the Heart was inspired by Pamela’s real life journey from wellness expert to a triple bypass in her 40’s.  Their work over the last five years has traversed both coasts, highlighting Events of the Heart “Angina Monologue’s”, which dramatize real women’s heart stories through theater performances. It is with great excitement that we begin our work with them on their biggest initiative to date: The Million Women's Heart Project.  Which in essence, is to message to, and screen ONE MILLION women across America by 2012.  Many celebrity ambassadors have already lent their voice to these performances, and we look forward to you lending yours. 

Please stay tuned for more details on the soon-to-be-announced Million Women’s Heart Summit on November 11th


CTB's work is never done. And now we can proudly say that we are working with Fred Graver and the Travel Channel team to make the 100th episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations a hit with some very special bookings.
Last, but not least, we've been having a great time working with MSN and the Reveille team on "Behind the Shell: The Ultimate Insider's Guide." Hosted by Carson Daly, Behind the Shell takes a closer look at American pop culture phenomena.
