Sure, it might not have quite the production values of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” but Fresno’s wacky talk show “Basically Brandon” has something the big network stars don’t: lots of local guests. This plucky, low-budget Internet-streamed show also has gobs of personality thanks to hosts Brandon Delsid and Camille Gaston, both stalwarts of the local theater scene. Tonight’s episode, which kicks off the show’s second season, airs at 10:30 p.m. at centralvalleytalk.com. The lineup looks great:
The season premiere will host a slew of local Fresno talent including cast members Danielle Behrens, Dominic Grijalva, Daniel Hernandez and Paige Parker from Good Company Players’ current production of “Singin’ in the Rain” as well as Bryce Moser, Alexis Garriott and Javier Padilla from Artists’ Repertory Theatre’s upcoming revival of “The Rocky Horror Show, Live!” Fan favorite musical guest Greg Ruud will also make an appearance with his trusty guitar. The show has undergone some revamping and has added new segments, new title cards and even a theme song!
Viewers will have a chance to win some prizes including movie tickets and and “Basically Brandon” T-shirts.
