A Special Message from Talk Show the Game Show host Guy Branum
Two points for this #Humblebrag! truTV announced today that mashup comedy series Talk Show the Game Show - hosted by comedian Guy Branum - will return in 2018 with a brand new batch of 16 outrageous, celeb-filled episodes. Based on Branum's popular live comedy show, the half-hour series is a boisterous combination of two beloved television formats that pits celebrities against each other to vie for the title of "Best Guest of the Night." Each week, guests come to play, not plug, as they compete in various talk show-inspired challenges on the only talk show that literally counts. Guests featured in the series' first run of episodes earlier this year include Chelsea Handler, Tiffany Haddish, Wanda Sykes, Moby, Margaret Cho, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Phoebe Robinson, Julie Klausner and Nikki Glaser.
Check out these favorite moments from past episodes:

Branum will continue serve as host and master of ceremonies and will again be joined by the series' fabulous comedic panel of judges - Emmy Award-winning writer and host of the hit podcast My Favorite Murder Karen Kilgariff and author and journalist Casey Schreiner.
The series is produced by Push It Productions with Wanda Sykes, Page Hurwitz, Anna Wenger and Branum serving as executive producers.
