Thanks and "Keep The Faith".

"ATTENTION! 'THE GUEST LIST' hosted by Showbiz Al will debut in September on Youtube. It will a variety show like Carson, Playboy After Dark, Rupert Pupkin and Joe Franklin. I will be in a tuxedo singing Sinatra-esque songs and hosting the show with skits, re-enactments and interviews. The look will be like Kramer's Merv Griffin set and I am looking for bands, writers and artists/characters of all kinds to be on the show. Street crazies too. If you are interested message me. We can have you on the show live or you can submit videos or even Skype. Hustle your wares! It will be fast and loose affair with a cheeseball Vegas vibe and the first show features an interview with Sammy Davis Jr, from heaven! And yes, I play Sammy..."
