From The Producers of the Howard Stern Tv Show
Even though the Stern Show hallway is where Show in the Hallway is based, the story actually travels all over New York City. This particular episode was filmed on location at the world famous Carolineâ€™s Comedy Club. As always, we had many scenes to shoot and a limited amount of time to shoot them, but there was another detail that made this shootâ€™s success even more important: Howardâ€™s wife Beth Stern was scheduled to appear in three scenes.
Beth came in with a great attitude and no ego whatsoever. I suggested she stay in her own private dressing room, yet she declined and waited with all the extras. When on camera, she looked great and did an amazing job. She even got a little payback on Sal for all the jokes heâ€™s made about her in the past, but again, not worth reading, itâ€™s worth seeing.
The shoot at Carolineâ€™s was complicated by a large number of extras. More people mean more mouths to feed and, more often than not, more problems as well. Luckily, the extras on this particular day were great and even though they didnâ€™t get paid, they did a tremendous job. We later found out one extra was a total super fan because when he saw Sal he was star struck. â€œI canâ€™t believe Iâ€™m standing next to THE Sal the Stockbrokerâ€, he said. He was also impressed with Beth to say the least and said â€œWow, Beth. Thatâ€™s probably as close as Iâ€™m ever going to come to meeting Howard.â€
Another fun scene worth mentioning takes place at Sirius and features actressMia Andersonand the tiny bodyguardRonnie Mund. In the scene, Mia had to act head over heels for Ronnie! Obviously, this proves that Mia is a phenomenal actress.
This was the last episode of season one, but donâ€™t worry, season two is coming soon. I want to thank everyone involved in the project; from the cast, to the crew, to everyone at Howard TV.
See you next season!
