Next, the second episode of “THE RINGMASTER” will premiere Wednesday, November 20 with these special guests: two-time Grammy Award-winning singer Colbie Caillat (in an exclusive interview and sneak peek at her new single), a conversation with actor Peter Facinelli about his new comic book series and an interview and performance from award-winning composer/producer Hans Zimmer with Dave Stewart. The show will also include additional musical performances from actor/singer/musician Drake Bell, internationally acclaimed violinist Ann Marie Calhoun and indie British singer/songwriter Carina Round. Each episode is spearheaded by Stewart as the Ringmaster and his guest host Rita D’Albert--co-founder of Lucha VaVOOM, the world-renowned Mexican masked wrestling/burlesque/comedy troupe--along with unexpected antics from a unique cast of characters.
The premiere episode of “THE RINGMASTER” is highlighted by a surprise musical performance by Andy Garcia, who penned a song “Jamming with the Ringmaster” for the occasion. He was joined by legendary percussionist, Sheila E. as well as Ozomatli and the Dave Stewart Band and Choir. The episode also features singer songwriter Judith Hill (“20 Feet from Stardom”), Somalian sister duo Faarrow and multitalented actor Elijah Kelley (“The Butler”). Stewart sits with Kelley (Lee Daniels’ the Butler) to discuss how he discovered Hip-Hop/Pop duo Faarrow as they perform their song, “Drive By Love.” Meanwhile, Terri Nunn and Stewart perform an acoustic rendition of Berlin’s ‘80s smash “No More Words.” All the guests performed and then joined the party, being entertained by a steady flow of eye-popping sideshow performances from Lucha VaVOOM.
