Imagine "Meet the Press" crashed into "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." The end result would be The Skinny with Peter DeGiglio, a news talk show that combines topical comedy and timely, cutting edge, often wacky variety acts with thought provoking conversations. Each month The Skinny tackles a new hot button sociopolitical issue; often ripped right from the headlines. And as host, local humorist Peter DeGiglio plays the part of a congenial ordinary schnook trying to wrap his head around it all. For each months show The Skinny features two guests, The Skinny Exclusive, a local artist commissioned to create a performance centered specifically around that months hot button issue, and the Very Special Guest,a high-profile figure from the world of journalism, literature, politics, academia, grassroots or the media.
