SHEENA METAL
Celebrates 20th Anniversary in LA

Comedy Carnivale Anniversary Party

Sunday, August 3 at 9pm

Sheena Metal HeadshotSheena Metal is set to celebrate 20 years as a Los Angeles radio host with an anniversary party at the Hollywood Improv on Sunday, August 3 at 9pm. For the very first time, Metal will broadcast her LA Talk Radio program, The Sheena Metal Experience, live from the historic comedy club.

The guest line-up for Metal’s live broadcast is: Alison Arngrim (Little House on the Prairie), Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys), Geri Jewell (The Facts of Life), Jill-Michele Melean and Debra Wilson (MADtv), Susan Olsen (The Brady Bunch), Craig Shoemaker (The LoveMaster), and Judy Tenuta (The Love Goddess).

Said Metal, “I am excited to announce the line-up of onstage guests, each of whom I admire and adore. Each will be doing a hilarious, irreverent, and insightful interview with me onstage in front of a live audience of my friends, listeners, and comedy fans. I am proud to call myself a talk radio host, to work every day at amazing LA Talk Radio, and to have found another creative family at the Hollywood Improv that has given me the best anniversary present ever with this live event.”

Sheena Metal‘s name has become synonymous with radio in Los Angeles as she has anchored numerous radio shows for the past 20 years. Her current top-rated talk show, The Sheena Metal Experience, airs Monday through Friday from 5—7pm on LA Talk Radio and was recently named one of the Frontier 50 by Talkers Magazine. Metal hosts three other weekly shows for the successful LA radio station: Music Highway, an internationally syndicated music/talk hybrid now in its 10th year, Haunted Playground, a paranormal cornucopia of ghosts, monsters, aliens, psychics, and other things that go bump in the night, and Two Chicks Talkin’ Politics, which pairs her with Brady Bunch alum Susan Olsen for a program that uses both women’s irreverent opinions on political and social issues to spread awareness and unity throughout the country. In late 2013, Metal added a another weekly radio show to her schedule, following radio icon Howard Stern to SiriusXM Channel 102 as the host of On Air with Club CalExotics on Vivid Radio.

Tickets for Sheena Metal’s 20th Anniversary Party at the Improv are $10 and may be obtained online at http://hollywood.improv.com/event.cfm?id=321058. Red carpet arrivals begin at 8pm and the evening will also include a post-show meet-and-greet with Metal and her guests.

The Hollywood Improv is located at 8162 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Valet and street parking are available.

In 2006, the V-Day movement was named one of Marie Claire Magazine’s Top Ten Charities, and in 2010, over 5400 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.
