At more than 200 episodes and 5+MM downloads, Jake Sasseville’s long-running talk show is a catalyst to the heart and mind. It features inspirational interviews with masters, heart-searching conversations with presidents of fortune 500 companies and NBA teams and highlights the common thread of what makes us all profoundly human. Widely considered as one of the most influential interviewers of his generation (and the youngest TV host in late night TV history on ABC), Jake’s style is inquisitive, humorous and heartfelt. He’s open about weight issues, watching his brother die when he was 17, failing in dozens of business ventures during his 20s, his recovery in 12 step programs — and his most recent move to Maui, the launch of his Institute and his global real estate endeavors.

Tara DeFrancisco on SNL, Second City, Chicago and Improv Comedy as a way of Life

Tara DeFrancisco is considered by many to be one of the greats of improv comedy this country has ever seen. 

Certainly in Chicago, but all over the world, Tara has made a name for herself as a playful and insightful entertainer who Free Press calls the "funniest woman in Chicago" and Curves Magazine wrote is by far the "top 25 funniest females in the United States." 

Early in her career after being cast out of 700 hopefuls, Tara followed in the steps of Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, Jane Lynch, Martin Short and others cutting her teeth 250 days a year touring with Second City. By 33, Tara had done over 3,000 shows. 

In her ever candid, often hilarious and consistently vulnerable interview with Jake, Tara discusses Saturday Night Live, why she loves Chicago, the art of improv, taking risks, following her dreams and self-acceptance. She takes us on a deep dive inside her mind and heart and we get to explore what makes her tick, how she got so good and why she keeps coming back for more. 

At the top of the show, Jake and Cait talk about the Men's Health magazine article slamming females in sports, Jake's childhood (and adult) closet obsession with Rosie O'Donnell and Caitlin's new film "A Long Walk to Forever," adapted from a Kurt Vonnegut Jr. short story. 

The Jake Sasseville Show is produced by Jake Sasseville and Gregory Stutzer. Associate producers Kodi Seaton, Caitlin Engel and Vivienne Kelly. (c) 2014 All rights reserved.
