Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s Playtone, along with Lexus’ LStudio announced today the launch of their web series production “The Three Minute Talk Show,” premiering today on LStudio’s Broadband Channel. Created specifically for the web, “The Three Minute Talk Show” features everything that audiences have come to expect from a talk show all condensed into approximately three minutes.

“Saturday Night Live” veteran and Emmy-nominated comedian Barry Sobel hosts the show along with Emmy-nominated actor Fred Willard, who serves as co-host. The show’s band is led by Ben Lee. The series premieres its first two episodes today with one new episode set to launch every Wednesday at

Guests confirmed to appear include Jon Cryer, Bryan Cranston, Johnny Knoxville, Stephen Moyer, Wilmer Valderrama, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cedric the Entertainer, Joe Jonas, Mike O’Malley, series creator Tom Hanks, and many more.

The Premiere Show

Tom Hanks is the first guest on the show.  Now for me the series starts off with a lie.  It lasts for 6:09, which more than double the 3 minutes advertised in the title.  Tom plugs his upcoming comedy movie “Larry Crown” and gives some good jams about the set.  The show closes out with comedian Charlie Viracola.

We all know that some shows can go on too long, in time the 3 Minute Talk Show could prove some shows may be too short to be funny or that talk shows have be longer to sell ad space.
