Year: 2017
Genre: Entertainment

Award winning "Raptress" (Actress/Rapper) Mandy Mayhem leads comedians and actors through an unfiltered discussion on show business, the hip hop world, and how the two relate. Sparks fly as opinions get heated and alter egos come out to play in this new talk show with a twist, complete with exclusive performances and hilarious hip hop themed games.

Episodes

Episode 1

Worlds collide as renowned actress, dancer,  fencer, rapper Olunike Adeliyi (Workin' Moms, Flashpoint) spits fire and brings her deep hip hop knowledge to our very own expert, Ms Mandy Mayhem - who displays her ineptitude at charades in this vibrant interview.

Episode 2

Mandy Mayhem and former Second City star Nigel Downer (The Beaverton, Odd Squad) combine their comedy chops in this hilarious session as they recreate famous meetings between certain rap stars and political leaders, fight relentlessly over who has better taste, what the definition of "adversity" actually is, and ultimately, agree on nothing.

Episode 3

Grace Lynn Kung (Mary Kills People, Miss Sloane) graces us with her  insight on why she doesn't talk to her heroes, why she learned sign language, and why people want you most when you don't want them. Mandy reveals why she has a rap alter ego, and lets us in on how important laying on the couch is for your career. 

Episode 4

Social Media influencer and actress Elise Bauman (Carmilla, Below her Mouth) sheds light on her experiences with homelessness, the dark underbelly of show business, and ultimately, leads Mandy into a cult that may or may not involve rapping with crackers.

Episode 5

Pedro Miguel Arce (Land of the Dead, True Detective) brings his contagious laugh to the show as he discusses the difference between LA and Toronto, why famously rude people are always nice to him, and reveals his shocking list of top five actors, including who he would like to spend time with, alone in a car...forever. Mandy forces Pedro into a round of hip hop karaoke he did not agree to.

Episode 6

The voices in Mandy Mayhem's head are barely held at bay in this in depth interview with LA/Toronto based rainman Gugun Deep Singh (The Strain, The Expanse) as he pours over his love of classical British actresses, and gives us his borderline conspiracy theories about a certain famous rapper's departure from planet Earth and ascent into the Milky Way.
