What do you get when you mix Gilligan’s Island with Mystery Science Theater 3000 and maybe a dash of Late Night with David Letterman?
Something like Yesterland Waltz.
Or sort of. Something like that.
Yesterland Waltz tells the story of a TV show within a TV show. If that makes any sense. It goes like this: Once upon a time, a young comedian named Justin Michaels thought he got his big break to do what he’d always dreamed of — host his very own late night TV talk show. He was so excited. He thought his ship had finally come in and he was ready to take the world by storm. He was going to be the new King of Late Night!
He was wrong.
Turns out that his agent…well, we don’t want to give it away, but let’s just say that’s not the show he would end up hosting!
Things go very, very wrong for him, and soon Justin finds himself stuck in a terrible predicament…sort of like the castaways on Gilligan Island. Remember how the professor always had some ingenious scheme to get the castaways rescued, but in the end, the plan was always ruined by Gilligan?
That’s Yesterland Waltz! Except instead of an island it’s a TV show set. And there’s no professor. And no gorgeous girl like Ginger. Actually, there’s no girl at all.
OK, fine. So maybe it’s not like Gilligan’s Island. Just watch it! Trust us, you will not be disappointed!
Said Justin Michaels, star of Yesterland Waltz: “You know, when the producer brought this to me, I didn’t get it. I asked him who my character was supposed to be and he told me it was sort of a cross between David Letterman, Jim Carrey, and Daffy Duck…emphasis on Daffy Duck. When we started to shoot the show, we tried to explain it to the crew, and they all looked at us with these puzzled looks on their faces. But then once we started shooting and the episodes got wrapped, they started shouting, ‘What’s next?! What’s next?! What happens next?!'”
