Join us for a night of debauchery with funny lady Michelle Buteau. Imagine the sass of Wendy Williams, the whimsy of PeeWee Herman, and a heavy splash of cheap white wine.

That is Michelle Buteau’s Low-Budget Talk Show. It’s an unpredictable, irreverent take on the late night talk show format. Michelle is joined by musical sidekick Rob Lewis and special guests for hilarious and hard-hitting discussions about food, sex, Beyoncé and everything in between.

Tonight’s guests are fashion designer and stylist Carson Kressley, comedian and actress Janeane Garofalo, and rising star Jo Firestone.

Watch the entire show:

You know Michelle’s work from the premiere episode of 2 Dope Queens, along with “Key and Peele,” “The Eric Andre Show,” VH1’s “Best Week Ever”and “Big Morning Buzz.”

As a first-generation American, Michelle has a unique take on feminism, race and culture in the US. Her father is Haitian, her mother is Jamaican, and she is married to a Dutch man, with whom she runs a side business dealing Danish modern furniture. So international! Michelle dishes up a distinct point of view that crosses cultures and continents. Join us, for a mostly unscripted evening that will surprise and delight.
