Chicago, IL —
Playing on the very gay tradition of friends gathering to chat over brunch, the interactive talk show only@brunch
has just put out their premier episode online.
Describing itself as "Five gay guys talking sex, politics, culture, dating, relationships, health, and everything else fabulous," the show features a wide variety of topics with a heavy dose of snark and sass.
The brainchild of Creator and Executive Producer Jared Hall, along with Executive Producers Brian Felder and Michael Mowers, the show features a cast of diverse backgrounds and ages talking about everything you would expect to hear over brunch with a group of friends.
The show is co-hosted by Felder and Hall along with Bradley Thomas, Craig Rathwell, Jesse Budlong, and Terrence Chappell
celebrated its premier party at Sidetrack
s on Wed., Aug. 17, where they introduced the community to their hosts and staff. Over a hundred people turned out to chat while sipping brunch-themed mimosas and to catch a teaser of the premier episode, which is now online.
Having watched the show and attended the event I was pleasantly surprised by the easy chemistry between the hosts and the amount of laughs the episode got from the room. Also impressive was the interactive aspect, where the hosts asked attendees what they wanted to see discussed on future episodes, a feature also seen on the show's website. Suggestions ranged from the usual answers of sex and dating to more in-depth topics like being out at the workplace and gay hispanic issues.
All-in-all, this community based gab fest has tons of potential and is worth checking out! Be sure to visit their website at www.onlyatbrunch.com
