Monday December 17, 2012 Judd Apatow & Leslie Mann
On Monday's show, Judd Apatow and his wife Leslie Mann are both in the red chair. They'll talk about their new movie 'This Is 40' (Judd wrote and directed, and Leslie stars), and get into their relationship, and why the idea of a movie about turning 40 feels so right at this moment. The comedy panel features stand-up comedian, and star of 'Mr. D' on CBC, Mark Forward.
Tuesday December 18, 2012 Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino is in the red chair Tuesday. His latest movie, 'Django Unchained', is already getting a lot of buzz (it scored five Golden Globes nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director). But cinematic success is nothing new for Quentin - ever since his first feature 'Reservoir Dogs', he's been inspiring other filmmakers with his killer dialogue and stylistic flourishes. Our comedy panel features Don Ferguson, a Canadian comedy fixture from the Royal Canadian Air Farce.
Wednesday December 19, 2012 Ken Burns
On Wednesday, master storyteller Ken Burns is in the red chair. One of the most influential non-fiction filmmakers of our time, Ken's sweeping, epic-length documentaries - including Baseball, Jazz and The Civil War - bring pivotal eras in history to life. He's so influential, they even named a shooting style after him: The Ken Burns Effect. Our comedy panel features Canadian comedian and author John Wing.
Thursday December 20, 2012 Corey Hart & David Chase
Two great guests on Thursday's show: Corey Hart knows what it means for fame to become mania. At the age of 21, he became a pop culture phenomenon. He survived the madness, had four kids, and focused on being a father. But an important project has brought him back to making music: creating an anthem for the LGBT community. Also in the red chair, David Chase, creator of 'The Sopranos' and writer-director on the film 'Not Fade Away', about a group of friends in 1960s New Jersey trying to make it big in rock 'n' roll. What connects gangsters and rock music in David's mind? Well, one thing is the sense of place: he says he can't write about anywhere without picturing Jersey. And our comedy panel features actor, writer and improviser Matt Baram.
