Similar to the take that Chelsea Handler’s Girl’s Behaving Badly had on women’s roles and reputations, New York real estate agent/comedian Michael Rakosi’s all-men webisode series, “That Show with Michael Rakosi” is an all guy ‘shoot the shit in a bar’ format featuring No Sports or Politics – masculinity instead of machismo!
“As celebrities dominate every form of media available to us, the quality of content of many shows is steadily diminishing. A decent talk show without celebrities and their lives being show cased is not to be seen much. Men’s issues are rarely touched on TV or web shows. Hosted by Michael Rakosi, this show is akin to men talking at a bar or a table. An online talk show that does not feature any celebrities but deals with important issues men face. Though none of the conversation includes sports or politics, a wide range of topics are covered by this show. It includes verbal jabs, taunts, witticisms, insults and punching which is characteristic of men’s behavior with other men.”
Eight episodes cover Men’s Sexuality (see the Two Spirit People episode), Life Defining Experiences, The Love of Money and that meaning of life question – What is Manhood?
