TV producer’s poker games aired on Playboy TV
Sam Simon, one of the original developers of the award winning animated television sitcom, The Simpsons, says that he has been told by his friends, on more than few occasions, that the private poker games that he hosts are that entertaining, they should be a show on TV.
Playboy TV heard about the “raucous and very entertaining” private poker games that Sam hosts and said they wanted to shoot this, the obvious answer that came out of Sam was Yes.
With that Sam Simon is now putting his games to the test, with “Sam’s Game”, which will be debuting tonight on Playboy TV. Some of tonight’s celebrities that will feature on the show will be, comedians Dave Attell, Artie Lange and Norm MacDonald. A former Playmate of the Year(2001) and "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Brande Roderick and even Sam’s ex-wife Jennifer Tilly.
There are also a couple of professional poker players that will also be joining in the game. Jennifer “Jennicide” Leigh and Philip “Phil” Laak.
Sam stated "The stakes aren't the biggest, the players aren't the best, but the game is definitely the funniest." The show's self-described "raunchy" comedy and language are unfiltered.
Sam’s Game is filmed at the famous Palms casino and resort in Las Vegas.
