SUMMARY: In the inaugural episode of talk show "The
David Mayes Show," guest Bryan Bellomo finds himself annoyed by
egocentric host David Mayes, incessantly flirted with by
sidekick Esteban, and weathering the inept but enthusiastic
efforts of intern Heather.
SUMMARY: David welcomes guest Hugo Armstrong from
Sacred Fools' hit play The Behavior of
Broadus, but Hugo couldn't make it, so fellow cast
member Tim Sheridan was supposed to come instead... but he
couldn't make it either, so Tim's understudy, Scott Golden is
the guest instead, pretending to be Tim. Confused?
So's David, who continues to interview Scott as if he were Hugo.
Scott finally goes with the flow and makes up answers to David's
inane questions, which are largely about Neil Armstrong, who
David assumes was Hugo Armstrong's dad. Meanwhile, Bryan
makes the mistake of returning, hoping to get paid for his
pervious appearance, and is shanghaied into a wig and dress by
Esteban, who makes Bryan do routines from "Dirty Dancing" with
him. And Heather thinks the show needs a "stage audience,"
so she invites her friends, promising them they're going to meet
SUMMARY: Heather, tired of being mistreated by
David, starts her own rival show, The Heather Schmidt Show,
and does it simultaneously with his show, on his stage.
Heather, who now has her own sidekick, Maral, and her own
intern, gets things underway with guest Lauren Van Kurin, but
when David's own brother, JJ Mayes, doesn't show up for his
guest spot on The David Mayes Show, Bryan Bellomo is
reluctantly pressed back into guest duty, once again left to
fend off Esteban's advances and answer David's inane questions.
The rivalry between the shows escalates until there is a rap
battle between sidekicks Esteban and Maral.
SUMMARY: David and Heather host their shows
simultaneously again, this time trying to get a single guest,
Pat Towne, to choose between them. But somebody is
sabotaging the show - the lights and sound keep cutting out.
This turns out to the be work of Bryan, having his revenge; he
is captured and tied to a chair. Esteban, tired of all the
fighting, tries to talk sense into the feuding hosts, and they
finally make up. Everybody leaves... leaving Bryan tied
up. But then Bryan is approached by a shadowy figure who
unties him, and tells him, "You're not the only one who hates
The David Mayes Show."

EPISODE FIVE (4/4/15)
- PLAYOFFS ROUND 1!
SUMMARY: David's thrilled to have been voted into
the playoffs, and even more thrilled that he's been given a 50
minute time limit... but his brother, Serial Killers
producer JJ, informs him that once again, he didn't read his
EMails. The time limit is just FIVE minutes. And so
David cuts all the planned acts and decides to just bring on his
many planned guests and immediately say hi and goodbye to each
of them as Esteban shows them on and right back off. The
final guest is Peter Fluet, who isn't on the list, but was
drugged by a man in a van and woke up there - which sounds to
Heather like their Guest Acquisition Program is working just as
planned. After Peter leaves, Bryan, thinking the show is
over, walks out and begins sweeping up, but David and Esteban
press him into service as an unwilling guest yet again... but
time runs out before he can answer David's inane question.
