Comedian and Producer Sharon Houston talks to her colleagues who work behind the scenes on your favorite (and not so favorite) talk, court, reality, and scripted shows. Some of these conversations will make you want to get into the TV business and others will make you run for the hills, just like most of us who work in TV want to do. This business is brutal!

Alex Hooper was on Season 13 (the one airing right now) of AGT. He chose to do a character and roast the judges and it was very Kaufmanesque. I thought it was genius. Alex talks about what it was like getting booed by 3000 people, having Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, and Mel B hate him while staying committed to that character, the feelings he had afterwards, and what he thought of what made it to air.
