Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! "Show B Revealed"

Post Recaps:  Wednesday, May 18, 2011

It's time to reveal what Show B. The fist time I wrote about Show B was on Day 205 Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Then on Day 219 Tuesday, April 26, 2011  I announced that I was officially confirmed. 

Thank you all for your patience. Now I'm revealing Show B for the first time. Show B is Baggage as in Jerry Springer's Baggage on The Game Show Network.

Jerry Springer host of Baggage meets Motown Maurice for the first time.
I won't get in too much details about the show yet. Just know that I was a contestant and I truly had a great time. I'll also say this much. During one of the breaks Jerry Springer approached me shook my hand and said "You are really funny do you do stand up comedy?" I said, ahhh...I do a little bit here and there." He then said, "You were funny I would watch you do stand up." I told thank you and said, "Hosting is my passion. Look for me as a host in the very near future." I shook his hands again, looked at him with a smile and we parted.

I thought of giving him my flier/business card but I left it in the holding room up stairs. Nonetheless, it wasn't necessary. Like many of the celebrities I've met in the past, I new Jerry and I will met again.

I was told by a few people in the production crew that the how might of been one of their best. They were really happy with the results. They even shoot a few things with me and the other contestants that they never tired before.

The immediate next day I thanked the casting director that initially contacted me and he told me, 
"At the meeting yesterday, they said that in the audition you were one of the best guys they had this season, they have seen about 500, well done!

Before writing this, I had the intentions for sharing details but I realized its best that you see the show first. I know you want to know my baggage. Or what they considered as baggage but your going to have to wait.

As great as the show maybe, I wasn't performing at my maximum capacity. Within minutes of my last scene I was cringing with grief. So many great thoughts came into my head after the fact. Oh well. I'll get them next time.

Final Thoughts

Once I arrived in the holding room, one of the contestants I was competing against said I looked familiar. Then he asked me if I auditioned for Wassup In LA. I thought that was so funny and odd because I auditioned for that show way back on Day 56 = Sunday, November 14, 2010. Once I told him yes, said, "I thought the high top fade looked familiar."

As the quest continues...

Motown Maurice


  1. Motown...Baggage was on MyTV Tampa Bay and might be returning to us in the fall! Maybe all your buds out here in Tampa can watch you...woot! woot!

  2. Awesome Motown. I did audience work on that show last summer. That was kinda sucky but it looked like the contestants had a good time. I'm sure it was a great use of your improv skills.
