The show before the show

A lot of people who watch TV or listen to the radio don't know that one of the things we all deal with who work in the media business is what I call "hurry up and wait".  On-camera talent, photographers, the people who set up all of the broadcasts, are all in a rush to get equipment and people in position for their brief appearances on the air.

On our TV show, one of those 'hurry up and wait' times is the minutes leading up to going on the air.  The hosts get into position to check camera focus and lighting, make sure everything looks right, and then they stand around for a while waiting.  Sometimes that waiting time comes with funny conversations to kill time.

Recently, I've been shooting more photos of these exchanges waiting to go on the air.  I've captured some pretty funny pictures.  It's even funnier to me that I have no idea what they were talking about but they're expressions and gestures made for amusing photos.

It's the stuff the Kenparazzi lives for.

I have no idea what they were talking about.
But whatever it was, it must have been hilarious.
