Eddie Trunk will bring stories, audience Q&A and more to the Blackthorn 51 club, and he’ll be joined by The Hard Way, Jackpipe and Blacque Jacque Shellaque. If you miss the likes of “That Metal Show” you’ll want to be a part of this fun night.
Eddie Trunk will film a new interview series called “Inside Out With Eddie Trunk” at the Iridium and this long form discussion show will feature Ace Frehley as the first guest. This event is free to enter to the first 100 to arrive.
A couple of months ago we discussed the cancellation of “That Metal Show” by VH1 Classic which you can refresh your memory on HERE. Earlier today Trunk announced the filming of a new interview series called “Inside Out With Eddie Trunk” and it will be filmed at the Iridium Jazz Club and feature the legendary Ace Frehley as his first guest. Check out the poster below and then a statement culled from Trunk’s own website.
I announced today I am shooting a pilot for a new TV series I have long wanted to do I am calling “Inside Out with Eddie Trunk”. I have always wanted to do a long form interview show with an audience for TV and I’m excited to be working with Iridium and some great producers to shoot the pilot this Tuesday night in NYC. We are going to have a small studio audience of around 100-150 people at Iridium for the taping. You must RSVP and get a confirm from the venue to attend. [email protected] is the address. They are handling audience and it is first come first served even if you do get a confirm and we reach capacity. So line up early to assure yourself a spot. Admission is free however it is a $25 per person table minimum. I’d like to thank my old friend Ace Frehley for being my first guest. Ace and I go way back as many of you know. I expect the interview to last 75-90 minutes and we will cover his entire life. Some of the audience will also get the chance to ask questions to Ace. For those that don’t know what a pilot is it is essentially a demo in TV. So I have no idea yet if, when, and where this will air and if it will become a series. I have confidence it very well could and have a great team I am working with. Continue reading Eddie Trunk Announces “Inside Out With Eddie Trunk” Interview Series→
