Anytime with Bob Kushell is a five-minute talk show produced for Sony Pictures Television and their online portal "Crackle.com". The show consists of a single monologue joke, a field-piece/desk bit, and a celebrity interview. It is hosted by Emmy-nominated writer Bob Kushell, and is co-created and directed by Russell Arch. The show also has a "house band" which consists of members from The Four Postmen, as well as writer Ron Rappaport.

(Note: Not to be confused with Anytime Talk Show with Christopher Logan Biggs an online broadcast which runs 40 minutes, or The Anytime Show Starring Trevor Widger which is also broadcast online via the popular video site YouTube.)

"Anytime with Bob Kushell" was conceived after Kushell and Arch produced a popular video entitled The Strike, Your Marriage, and You and a behind-the-scenes "sequel" The Healing during the 2008 Writers Guild of America Strike.

Two "pilots" were produced in April 2008, and subsequently sold a 26 episode season that started airing on December 18, 2008 and will continue through June 2009.

The show is taped in an actual 17' x 18' garage in Van Nuys, California.[1]
