HAPPY HOUR is a cocktail-fueled 60 minutes of random conversation with folks who have nothing in common, other than being New Orleanians in a bar. Featuring extraordinary New Orleans musicians playing live, host Grant Morris and sidekick deluxe Andrew Duhon.
We invited film maker Kevin McLin on Happy Hour because he seemed like an interesting guy. We had no idea how interesting. First of all he's the creator of two of the potentially most offensive, edgy, pieces of comedy to come out of New Orleans in years. Maybe ever.
But that's not all. Although Kevin was twenty years younger than the King of Pop, he grew up with Michael Jackson.
Kevin's dad was Michael's spokesman from the 90's all the way through till the end of Michael's life.
Just because Michael's dead doesn't mean we can't talk to him. Psychic Cari Roy gets in touch with Michael, live, and relays a message to Kevin. We see first hand why BBC America named Cari as the best psychic in the USA.
What do three women do when they graduate from college and end up in New Orelans? If you're Annalisa Kelly, Ruby Ross and Julia Michaels you hang out together and sing Balkan folk songs.
Calling themselves Pyeya - there's a story behind that too - the trio slip on headphones (and take them off) and make their first recording ever, live on Happy Hour. It's enchanting.
