The People vs. Jerry Sadowitz is British TV talk show that ran from 1998
to 1999 and featured the comic host interacting with ordinary folks.
The show's premise involved audience members vying for a $10,000 prize
for being the most interesting conversationalist. If a contestant bored
the host, they would be escorted off the stage or verbally berated by
Sadowitz. No audience member ever actually won the prize. The show was
later renamed "The Beast of Jerry Sadowitz."
