Oxygen Media Premieres Syndicated Daily Comedic Show "Crazy Talk"
NEW YORK, NY – August 18, 2015 – Oxygen Media announces the exclusive cable distribution airdates for the new syndicated daily program “Crazy Talk,” airing Monday through Friday with back-to-back episodes at 7pm and 7:30pm ET/PT beginning September 14th. From NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution, this fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, comedic show raises an eyebrow at the most outlandish, and sometimes bizarre, moments on reality television. Taped in front of a live studio audience, hosts Tanisha Thomas (Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club”) and Ben Aaron (WNBC’s “New York Live”), inject their raw and hilarious banter into the absurd, ridiculous, and most-watched TV clips that viewers can’t resist watching.
"Crazy Talk" welcomes some of the standout guests featured in these memorable clips to provide the inside scoop behind their crazy moments. Additionally, Aaron ventures outside the studio, roaming the city for his signature “Man on the Street” segments. Turning chaos into comedy, this unique and infectious talk show celebrates the craziness in television and all of the humor that comes with it.
Tanisha Thomas is the hilarious, larger-than-life Brooklynite who was first introduced to television audiences in 2008 as a cast member in Oxygen’s "Bad Girls Club." She quickly became the show’s number-one fan favorite and went on to host the show’s reunion specials as well as the dating competition show, "Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too," and also had her own solo docu-series, "Tanisha Gets Married." Most recently, Thomas appeared on Lifetime’s makeover show, "Girlfriend Intervention," where she drew upon her own life experiences as she worked with women who have fallen on hard times to give them the boost that they need to transform their lives for the better. In addition to hosting "Crazy Talk," Thomas is working on a cosmetics line, a plus size movement called "PLUSH," and anticipating the release of her first book, Diary of a F.A.T. Girl, a memoir chronicling the dramatic highs and lows of her journey from Brooklyn to Hollywood and her ongoing search for happiness.
To the New York metropolitan area, Ben Aaron is a daily contributor for WNBC’s "New York Live," but nationally Aaron is known for his ‘dance walking fitness’ viral video, which has over 3 million YouTube views. Aaron’s introduction into entertainment began at a young age when he hosted his own public access show from his basement.
