Imagine imagining an imaginary television spilling its beans all over—it's on the walls, on the floor, in the shelves, in the window and on the sidewalk. The Month Show is an expanded talk show: the theme song punctuates and permeates the air, the monologue is in the windows, the laugh track is on the street, the guests are on the walls and it's 22 days instead of 22 minutes. When we say TV Room, we start to mean something different; when we say Studio Practice, we start to mean something new. 

Over the course of a month and several blocks, The Month Show with Jesse Malmed chases a spotlight, acquiesces to charming guests, applies jokes topically and locally and goes out on the limn between your evening and your slumber.
