Join The Audience Get Tickets To See This Show
The Maury Show is a wild ride of oh”s, ah”s and ghastly gasps that combines serious situations with over-the-top guests. When arriving at the studio, the producers tell the audience to overreact to everything that is said on stage. It turns out that this request is unnecessary as the guests that come on the show talk about such crazy life situations that the audience does not need any additional reaction coaching. Maury opens the show with a live view of a guest accused of being either a dead-beat father, an uninformed father or being a cheater. Maury then proceeds in telling the audience what the rest of the show will be about. He then turns his attention to the accuser then the accused, trying to get all sides of the story. The show then invites two or three other guests in similar situations and will often ask for a polygraph or a paternity test to prove who is right. When Maury reads the results of these tests regardless of what they say, the audience and guests turn into frenzy.
The show is infamously known for the inappropriate language and violent break-outs which is what ultimately livens up the audience and gets them on their feet.
Maury Povich has been hosting his show since 1991
Since the show began, it has received a lot of attention from young to old folk creating a rather diverse demographic. The show”s guests come on to share personal and rather seemingly private dilemmas on national television to seek out help.The episode names are nutty statements such as, “DNA Will Prove my Dad is Not Your Baby”s Father,” “Is my Little Sister Sleeping With My Husband?” and “Is My Wife Having an Affair with My Son?” The Executive Producers Paul Faulhaber and John Pascarella have worked with Maury Povich to create a popular daytime talk show that attracts all types of people from different backgrounds. Faulhaber has helped the show become a hit for years now and has also spoke highly of co-executive producer Pascarella, describing him an enthusiastic and knowledgeable asset to the show.The Maury Show is not only known for the heavy dramatics on stage. The audience is also told to be loud and chaotic when shocking subjects are discussed. The phrases “you ARE the father” and “you are NOT the father” stir up the most ridiculous and laughable reactions from both the audience and guests with whoops and hollers as well as crazy dances. When Maury reveals the results of a paternity test, the guests either jump around the set and dance, run backstage to cry or simply break out in violent rants. These rants often end up in fist fights. Maury Povich sure loves his ratings.The Maury show was previously taped in New York City at NEP Penn Studios 401.
