You may have noticed how rare it is for metal to get any sort of mention or reference in mainstream entertainment like TV or movies. Hell, we go crazy when we see the slight reference of rock and metal at any random talk show just because we feel like popular media is very dismissive of this kind of music and lifestyle. But someone thought that enough is enough and decided to do the opposite so instead of waiting to catch a glimpse of metal at a talk show, they decided to make one surrounding solely in metal.
Jordan Olds and Drew Kaufman, the creators behind Mrs. Woman Productions, decided to make Two Minutes To Late Night, a talk show dedicated to bring attention to rock and metal in the same fashion that David Letterman and Jay Leno have done for years. The duo recorded their pilot back in 2015 at the renowned Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY and they finally released it for our entertainment via Youtube.
Hosted by “Gwarscenio Hall” (Olds), a well-dressed corpse-painted fella, and musically adorned by the band Mutoid Man, the first episode had The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman as it’s first guest and both discussed different topics regarding Weinman’s projects and other interesting stuff. Singer/songwriter Laura Stevenson also popped up, as did “Gwarla Stevenson” to duet with Mutoid Man on “Bridgeburner.” Just like any other conventional talk show, the show also had some humor in the form of sketches, games and mouthy entertainers pulling the leg of every guest of the show in every chance they can.
The pilot is only 22 minutes long but here’s hoping they will get enough attention and support for them to do it more often. The great thing about this idea is not just to make a light-hearted talk show for metal heads for the sake of entertainment but they also want to bring attention to upcoming bands in the most original way there is. Check out the video and let us know what you think about it. If you want more Mrs. Woman and Mutoid Man, then you should definitely watch the band playing a cover of Tom Jones’ “She’s A Lady” to a very unimpressed crowd of straphangers on a New York subway.
