55424097Ever wish there was a place to see comedians talk about their craft besides awkward episodes of Inside The Actors Studio (sorry, Poehler)? In 2010, Showtime is unveiling Behind The Green Room Door, a new chat series hosted by Paul Provenza that will feature different comics each week discussing the ups, downs, ins and outs of life onstage.

Each week, three different comics will join Provenza to talk comedy. Think Jon Favreau’s Dinner For Five minus the chow, as things will be said that probably wouldn’t fly at the dinner table.

“The green room is a safe space for comedy and a dangerous place for convention,” Provenza told Variety. “If you’re not easily offended and can roll with whatever happens when there are no rules, then being behind that door can be the time of your life.”

Tentative guests include Jonathan Winters, Eddie Izzard, Robert Klein and Penn Jillette. Look out for it next year.

    Interesting that someone would comment on something that hasn’t aired yet. Typical of today’s idiocracy.
    I was invited to attend this show by a friend who is trying to break into comedy, and even as a person not particularily that into comedy I found the roundtable discussion fascinating and gave me insight into their world and art. I can’t wait to see this series when it airs.
