Chris plays himself as a low-key, nebbishy rock star fumbling sincerely with mundane neighborhood & bizarre rock god situations, with the help but more often, hindrance of his band & manager/ex-girlfriend (Kristine Dattilo). His TV band includes 3 of his real long-time back-ups (Hershel Yatovitz, Rolly Salley & his droll drummer Kenney Dale Johnson. Frequent music biz guest stars play themselves and jam with sharply-dressed nice guy Chris, such as Trisha Yearwood and Billie Joe Armstrong. Written by
The character of Mona is based on a real woman at the Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco known as "Dolphina". In the 1930s, a magician worked the joint and rigged up a series of mirrors that would project an image of anyone who was lying on a rotating table in the basement up into the fish tank located behind the bar.

I wonder if Garth Brooks will have his own show, too?
THE CHRIS ISAAK SHOW represents a day in the life of a popular country- rock singer, namely the dude the title represents. Chris Isaak is
portrayed as himself, as he deals with the many ups and downs his
status has to offer. Among them are his putting up with a female
stalker, his bandmates' misadventures with love, and great musical numbers. I'm an avid fan of Isaak's music, and having discovered this cool show (now that it's being broadcast in VH1 every so often), I had realized how well the guy can act, too. It just goes to show how being talented can go a long way. Just ask Chris Isaak!
