Speakeasy features Hollywood’s most iconic men chatting and joking over drinks with Tompkins. The series premiered last week with Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell, anb will feature guests Zach Galifianakis, Nathan Fillion, Chris Hardwick, Oscar Nuñez (you know, Oscar from NBC’s The Office), and True Blood‘s Sam Trammell.
Tompkins, well known for his role in HBO’s sketch comedy Mr. Show with Bob and David and his work on VH1’s Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins, holds court with guests at a rotating stable of L.A. destinations—and custom cocktails built by in-house mixologists—beginning with a debut at Hollywood’s Harvard and Stone.
“With Speakeasy, we set out to reconstruct the standard talk show format into something that highlights Hollywood’s trailblazers and captures the spirit of our audience—today’s man,” said Mitch Rotter, senior VP and GM of Editorial Properties for Break Media.
Speakeasy is produced by Break Media in partnership with Bacardi, the series’ sponsor.
