    in Sports

    Our first guest is no stranger to the show and no stranger to the spotlight, Daniel Straus is back on the show and that means he's set to be back in the Bellator Cage. Daniel is set to take on Justin Wilcox in the main event at Bellator 127, October 3rd. We will talk to Daniel about the match up and being the main event, how he stacks up against Wilcox, and how the match up came to be.

    Our second guest is fast on his feet, you don't get the nickname "The Gazelle" any other way. Walel Watson is back on the show and set to step back into the Titan FC cage. It's been a minute since we've spoke with Walel and lots has changed since the last time we spoke. Walel has added a stamp to his passport with his fight in Finland, added another win by Submission, and signed with Titan FC to take on Anthony Gutierrez.

    Hour two is kicked off by "Baby" Joe Taimanglo as he gets ready to face Michael Parker, September 26, at Bellator 126. Baby Joe is on a two fight losing streak, but the last time that happened he went on a ten fight win streak... So that could spell a bad 2 to 3 years for the division. We will talk to Joe about the motivation that he has going in to this fight and if he feels like his back is against a wall. We will talk to Joe about his current match up and his goals for the rest of the year inside and outside the cage.

    Things get heavy before we close the shop. Travis "Hapa" Browne is back on the show and that means you're bound to get Hapa like you won't get him anywhere else. Christmas comes early this year for fight fans as Hapa is set to take on Brendan Schaub on December 6, at UFC 181. We will talk to Travis about the match up, what fans can expect, and how this fight came to be.

Pascal’s journey into combat sports started when he began boxing at 14.   This year was the first year of Bellator testing the waters with their brand and reality TV combining to make “Fight Master.” Everyone waited to see who would be a part of the show, how the show would actually look when the final product was finished, and if it could breathe new life into the MMA reality world.AJ has been our man on the inside of the warehouse all season and we couldn’t be more proud of him and how he has shown heart and grit all season. AJ will break down this upcoming weeks episode and all the things that you didn’t see on TV.    Wrapping up the show is a man coming off a win that put all UFC Heavy Weights on Notice. Travis “Hapa” Browne is stopping back in the shop and coming off the biggest win of his career.

    Some Improv fo dat Ass: Why EVERY Actor Needs It

    in Comedy

    If the idea of getting up on stage, or in front of a camera, without a script makes you feel like you want to pee yourself, don't worry.  We've got two of the hottest actors on the Improv scene, Grasie Mercedes and Josh Covitt, to help work your Improv kegel.
    Grasie Mercedes is that elusive mix of hilarous & hot.  She keeps the masses entertained as a host, actor/comedian, and celebrity fashion consultant.  You can currently catch this savvy stylist helping those less fashionable on the MTV series, "Girl, Get Your Mind Right!"  You can also find her making some funny with her Improv team, Triggerfinger at IO West in Hollywood.
    Josh Covitt is proof that you can be a comedian without being a basketcase.  This guy could quite possibly be one of the most Talented and nicest people in Hollywood.  Oxymoron?  Nope.  Covitt is deeply entrenched in the Improv scene doing sketch shows at Upright Citizens Brigade and M.I.'s Westside Comedy Theater, as well as starring in a slew of tv commercials.  The guy works harder than Seacrest. And I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Josh Covitt on SNL sometime soon.
    What is Improv? And why is it important for actors to take Improv classes?  Who are the best teachers?  Grasie and Josh will answer all these questions and more on the next "Lights, Camera...ACTOR!"

    Choosing the Right Monologue for You

    in Entertainment

    Choosing a great monologue is not easy!  But as an actor, you should always be prepared with at least 2 rehearsed monologues in your back pocket.  So how do you find a monologue that is just right for you?
    On the next episode of Lights, Camera...ACTOR! actress/producer, Natalie Victoria and filmmaker, Geno Brooks will help me answer that question.
    Natalie Victoria is best known for playing the role of Ellie in the cult horror flick, "Deadheads."  But Miss Victoria is also an accomplished producer and business woman.  As an actress, she's performed her fair share of monologues, and knows what it takes to knock one out of the park.
    Geno Brooks has written, acted in, and executive produced a slew of independent projects.  Currently, you can catch his web series "The Therapist" online. Geno knows what he's looking for when it comes to casting an actor to fill a role.  And a great monologue is definitely a way to show off your acting chops to this filmmaker.
