Closet Talk Shows

Mike O'Brien's '7 Minutes in Heaven' Brings Humor in an Intimate Way

— August 29, 2011 — Pop Culture
If Mike O’Brien asks you to join him in the closet, don’t be alarmed. Engaging in a little off-the-record discourse, he aims to promote openness in one of the most notoriously intimate spaces: the closet. Often seen with an alcoholic beverage in hand, this closet talk show host brings a more adult meaning and a touch of vulgarity to the '7 Minutes in Heaven' we all know and love. 

Yes, the show does take place in an actual closet adorned with a variety of coats, dresses and mismatched shoes. As odd as it sounds, this unorthodox talk show space actually allows for a more cozy, intimate conversation that often leads to a little good night kiss. After all, isn’t that what 7 Minutes in Heaven is all about? Be prepared to watch Mike O'Brien get a little friendly with a number of stars, ranging from Elijah Wood to SNL superstar Kristen Wiig.

Implications - With a rise in YouTube talk shows, 7 Minutes in Heaven is slowly making its way onto the map along with shows like Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, which reveal the effectiveness of comedic talk show forums. This nontraditional forum is a clear example of how traditional forms of media are moving to YouTube, where content can transcend time and space gaining viewership from people all over the globe.
