"Being a guest on ‘The Skinny’ was one of the coolest moments of my career. Peter DeGiglio is a masterful interviewer and I could have chatted with him all night." --Roger Clark, NY1 News
"I loved being a part of ‘The Skinny’…Political conversation, humor,lively audience, with good music thrown in. A blast!"
--Sally Kohn, liberal commentator on Fox News Network
Local humorist Peter DeGiglio is a self proclaimed "average schnook," admitting he doesn't know all the facts, all the names and certainly not all the answers. So he devised a way to get "the skinny" from the people who might know: Start his own talk show.
Part "The Daily Show," part "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," The Skinny with Peter DeGiglio is a news talk show that combines topical comedy and timely, cutting edge, often wacky variety acts with thought provoking conversations featuring high-profile journalists, reporters, literary and political figures, and pop/cult icons. Each month Peter and his crew tackle a new hot button sociopolitical issue; often ripped right from the headlines.
