Dr. Portnoy: Provocateur

Show Summary

Simultaneously a talk show and a work of performance art, "Dr. Portnoy" represents an alternative to the tired TV platform where guests come to promote whatever they have to sell. Instead, the program emulates the psychotherapeutic model--the so-called "talking cure," arguably one of the last redoubts of authentic discourse in our society--in order to encourage an unusual degree of intimacy and spontaneity between its participants. Provocative and innovative, challenging and hip, "Dr. Portnoy" is a contemporary "happening" designed to revive the art of sparkling conversation while encouraging its guests to open up to a degree unusual for television.
