Ben Gleib on Season 2 of “Idiotest”

The very funny Ben Gleib returned to The Big Wakeup Call to talk about Season 2 of his popular “Idiotest” game show.  We learn about a new touchscreen, better looking contestants, and a focus group’s opinion on Ben’s hair.  Careful listeners will hear that Ben and I start the interview pretty much as best friends, have a bit of a falling out in the middle, but reconcile at the end.

Catch the season premiere of “Idiotest” tonight at 7 Central on Game Show Network.

Jonathan Mangum from “Let’s Make a Deal”

Jonathan Mangum is the announcer & Wayne Brady’s sidekick on “Let’s Make a Deal” and has also been seen on several improv TV shows.  He’s currently on a comedy tour opening for Wayne.  We talked about his improv background, how he handles the guy in the audience who thinks he’s funnier than everyone else, and our mutual love for Chicago’s Italian Beef sandwiches.
