Kelly Osbourne And Jeff Beacher Partner With PodcastOne To Launch “The Kelly Osbourne And Jeff Beacher Show”
LOS ANGELES, April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PodcastOne, a leading podcast platform and a subsidiary of LiveXLive Media (NASDAQ: LIVX), announced today that it will launch The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show, an exciting new podcast and vodcast from pop culture icon Kelly Osbourne and legendary Hollywood and Vegas showman Jeff Beacher. Set to debut on May 4, 2021, the weekly podcast will resemble a live theater experience and feature their dynamic and outrageous personalities and uncensored conversations with a diverse list of celebrity guests and famous friends…think Howard Stern meets The Osbournes. They will discuss everything from the latest current events and crazy sh*t they saw in the news to fitness, weight-loss, fame, stories of inspiration and beyond – nothing is off limits.
The pair will open up and speak candidly about the recent transformations in their lives; Osbourne revealed she lost 90 pounds after embarking on a journey of clean living and Beacher dropped 260 pounds after taking charge of his life. Osbourne and Beacher will be joined by regular co-host Donny Davis, original star of Beacher’s Madhouse and one of the most well-known activists for little people. The podcast will record and film from the penthouse of the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel which is the former home to Beacher’s Madhouse theatre.
“I strive to be inclusive in everything I do. I want to include every single unique group. What some may have called freaks, we call family,” said Osbourne, and her wild stories and infectious laugh will spark a smile on anyone who listens. “After having the #1 live theater show in the world for decades, my dream was always to be a talk show and radio host,” said Beacher. “This podcast is going to be an exciting combination of both audio and video – bringing the live theater experience into everyone’s home. Our podcast is going to be in the top 10 list by next year.”
“Kelly and Jeff together are a showstopping dynamic. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to PodcastOne and know that their show will be destination programming for podcast audiences,” said Kit Gray, President of PodcastOne.
The duo first teamed up when Beacher named Osbourne creative director of his famed Beacher’s Madhouse, a revolutionary, vaudeville-inspired comedy nightlife experience that quickly became a staple of the social scene in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, bringing in everyone from Elton John, Mick Jagger, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez Leonardo DiCaprio, David Beckham, Eddie Murphy, Sasha Baron Cohen and Kevin Hart to the Kardashians – Kim, Khloe and Kourtney and Paris and Nicky Hilton.
The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show will continue the exciting creativity, unique circus-like atmosphere and compelling conversation that happens when these two minds meet, updated with a 2021 lens. The podcast will be available on PodcastOne, Amazon, Apple, Spotify and wherever podcasts are heard and the vodcast will be seen on LiveXLive.
