Kevin Pollak's chat show

6/10
Author: A56T from United Kingdom
26 November 2010

Kevin Pollak is known to many from his appearances as a stand up comedian and in films such as The Whole Nine Yards and Numb but now makes his debut as a chat show host.

Pollak is at constant ease as he interviews his guest (normally a friend of his) and has a natural charm that makes the viewer feel so relaxed. Interestingly for a chat show hosted by a comedian the show also has genuine depth and some of the interviewees really open up to him and this makes the show even more appealing. The guest feels so at ease with Pollak and his shows format that they feel more comfortable to talk about themselves. This intimacy is something that is lost on other similar shows.

Overall Pollak appears to have found a new lease of life with this show and long may it continue.

a shame that it seems like nobody there has never listened to the show

Pollak is a great interviewer and, in any given week, if you're a fan of his guest, it's unlikely you will have heard a better interview.

But for me, the poor sound of the show makes it discouraging unless the guest is a top priority. Even after 100 shows it remains poorly mixed and not limited. You'll find yourself constantly leaping for the volume knob as people laugh, joke and make your speakers crackle, and then become introspective and can't be heard. Sound effects and music are twice as loud as the talk.

It's amazing that a show that looks like a lot of money and effort has been put into the product sounds like nobody there has ever listened to it and bothered to correct big problems.
