Food Network's Rivers to Make N.Y. Stage Debut

News   Food Network's Rivers to Make N.Y. Stage Debut Bobby Rivers, who hosts Food Network's "Top 5," will make his New York stage debut in a one-man show entitled "I Look Thinner on TV!"

In his new show, Rivers, a former VH1 talk-show host, shares his experiences in and out of show business. Directed by David Gautschy, the show, a press release informs, "reveals Bobby at both his most outrageous and his most honest — live and uncensored. Bobby dishes the dirt on his life, and what he thinks of others' lives, as well as what it means to be two minorities in show business: African-American and gay." Rivers, who grew up in South Central Los Angeles, made his professional television debut in 1980 on Milwaukee's "PM Magazine." He eventually landed work as a VH1 veejay. Other jobs include host of the syndicated game show "Bedroom Buddies," a stint on "Weekend Today in New York" and the host of the Cablevision film review/interview show, "Metro Movies with Bobby Rivers."

"I Look Thinner on TV!" will play Sept. 12, 25, 13, 20, 21 and 28 and Oct. 3 and 4 at The Ground Floor Theatre, which is located in Manhattan at 312 West 11th Street. Tickets are available by calling 212-978-3758.
