TMI Hollywood pokes fun at the very heart of the city it calls home: Hollywood. The world is obsessed with celebrity culture. Who's hooking up, who's hanging it up and most importantly, what were they wearing when they did it. Websites like TMZ, Perez Hilton, Hollywood Life and Gawker have some of the most loyal and rabid fans online, while television networks like E! and Bravo not only feed our need for celebrity information but create celebrities of their own with shows like Keeping Up With the Kardashians and The Real Housewives. In short, we love celebrities... almost as much as we love to hate them. Out of that idea came TMI.
TMI was created in 2012, at the Second City Theater, by writers who had just finished working, for 2 years, on another Second City show, the politically minded, Second City This Week. Where SCTW was about the topics that most affected the world around us, TMI was created as its antithesis; a show about all the news we secretly want, based on the topics no one really needs.
TMI started modestly with a cast of roughly 20 actors and 6 writers. Over the last 3 years, the show has grown considerably, with today's cast of 40+ amazing actors, 20 writers in Los Angeles, Texas, New York, London, Lisbon and Geneva and multiple film production crews, who work on video shorts. The show has been asked to perform at different venues in Southern California, as well as at comedy festivals in San Francisco, Chicago and Austin. Along the way, TMI was recognized as the Best Sketch Show In Los Angeles at the 2013 IO West Improv Festival. In the fall of 2015, the show moved from the Second City stage to the legendary Acme Comedy Theatre in Hollywood, where it has become the first sketch comedy show ever to stream live, in front of a studio audience, to the Internet.
Three Sundays a month, TMI presents an all-new hour of sketch comedy, commentary and musical theater, based on the stories of the week in entertainment, celebrity and pop culture. Each week's show, a celebrity guest joins our cast to "host" the show and take part in the fun. Nothing is off limits. Nothing is too silly or trivial. Nothing is too controversial. Every time Beiber opens his mouth, Miley opens Instagram or Kim Kardashian opens her... well, you know, TMI is there, with its own unique and hilarious take on the story. Some of TMI's formers guests include David Faustino, Emmy nominee Dot Marie Jones (GLEE), Jim O'Heir, SAG Award winner Patrick Gallagher (GLEE), SAG Award winner Josh Sussman (GLEE), Melissa Peterman, Samm Levine, Hal Sparks, Autumn Reeser, Matt Iseman, Jonathan Lipnicki, and many, many more.
