Reading Time: 3 minutes
Have you ever thought about what America’s Got Talent would be like if it only featured variety acts? TBS’s latest show called the Go-Big Show will be just that, full of extreme acts. Take a look at the promo below to see the thrilling new show slated to air in 2021.
‘Go-Big Show’ Is A New Extreme Talent Competition Set To Air On TBS
Go-Big Show is hosted by hilarious comedian Bert Kreischer who boasts in the promo that it is a competition series like no other. It has a panel of superstar judges including actress Rosario Dawson, singer Jennifer Nettles, wrestler Cody Rhodes and none other than rapper Snoop Dogg.
The show recently began filming in Macon, Georgia and it features a very enthusiastic drive-in audience. Obviously, the coronavirus pandemic has made approaches to talent shows very unconventional. Go-Big Show was screened to the show’s drive-in audience while they had super fun socially distanced tailgate parties. The show has been operating under strict COVID-19 safety protocols and the production team was isolated prior to filming to ensure everyone’s safety.
TBS has promised that this is the only show where you can see monster trucks, alligator wrestling, fire breathing, snake wrangling, tight-rope walking and stunt archery to name a few. In the preview for the show, one-act even used Rosario as a volunteer. He swallowed a sword that was attached to her body via a harness. Basically, he lifted her body weight using only his teeth. The acts will be competing for a $100,000 prize.
“The program celebrates daring acts alongside personal, behind-the-scenes stories from the challengers as they battle head-to-head to impress the judges” according to the TBS website.
What Else To Expect From This New Extreme Show
At the very end of the promo for Go-Big Show, ‘AGT’ alum Ben Blaque can be seen making his appearance on the show. You probably best remember Ben from when his cross-bow danger act involving Alesha Dixon went wrong. This was after his cross-bow mechanism jammed on ‘AGT: Champions.'” It definitely seems like Ben will be back on this show looking for redemption.
“We are going bigger and bolder with our unscripted line-up at TBS to provide more of the content that viewers love from our platform,” Brett Weitz, general manager of TNT, TBS and truTV said. “Go-Big Show not only delivers on this promise with a thrilling new take on a talent competition, but it’s also another example of our innovative spirit as we continue to create brand-defining, must-watch television.”
“Go-Big Show celebrates unique, untraditional and unforgettable American talent,” Corie Henson, EVP and head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT and truTV said. “Each contestant brings tremendous heart and swagger, which also perfectly describes Bert and our judges, a dream team of larger-than-life talent.”
Go-Big Show is set to air on January 7, 2021 on TBS.
