Martin Sheen helps promote UW-Superior student's talk show


A University of Wisconsin-Superior student has the support of a legendary actor as he prepares to unveil the latest installment of his live talk show at the college, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

Andrew Kirov, who stages "Kirov By Night" at the Experimental Theater in the Holden Fine Arts Building at UWS, managed to get Emmy-winning actor Martin Sheen to endorse the March 7 edition of the show in a video posted on the show's Facebook page.

In the video, Sheen asks viewers to "mark your calendar for the funniest comedy event of the season."

Kirov, 21, managed to nab Sheen for the promotional video after meeting the actor in conjunction with his work with the Peace of Mind Foundation -- a nonprofit organization that the actor supports which provides support and education about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Kirov told the News Tribune that "Kirov By Night" is a combination of TV talk shows like "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson," Conan O'Brien's "Conan" and "The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson," and sketch comedies like "Chappelle's Show," "MADtv" and "Saturday Night Live."
