‘They All Laughed at (Gershwin’s) Christopher Columbus,’ But ‘Shop Laughing’ Show May Have The Last Laugh Now
NEW YORK, May 3 /PRNewswire/ — If the quirky new Shop Laughing© show clicks with web viewers, home shopping may never be the same.
Viewable at www.shoplaughing.com, the show features an ordained minister who croons as his playful Latino co-host cavorts in English and Spanish in what has to be the ultimate LOL in home shopping.
He’s the big, jolly round guy, a sort of home shopping Don Quixote, while she’s his petite sidekick who’s a whole lot prettier than Sancho Panza.
Together Dr. John Myers and Latino actress Laura Termini make a delightful duo who have a ball combining shopping and entertainment in a frothy new format that Shop Laughing’s producers liken to “American Idol meets QVC.” Introducing talent is a debonair talent himself, veteran TV anchor JP Hervis.
“I can’t tell you when I’ve had as much fun,” said Myers, who on this week’s premiere show belts out the Gershwin tune “They All Laughed at Christopher Columbus” only changing the lyrics to “They all laughed at a show called Shop Laughing . . . but who has the last laugh now.”
For Termini, his perky Latino sidekick whose face is familiar to Hispanic film and soap opera aficionados, the show breaks new ground by blending entertainment and shopping.
“When I shop I like to have fun,” she said. “And this show not only has fun products, but we have singers, dancers and comedians performing in between selling segments. And they’re all competing for text votes from our audience.”
The show, a production of TransMedia Group Entertainment (www.transmediagroup.com), is streamed live at www.shoplaughing.com where it looks like a regular TV show only viewers can shop online or call in their order toll free at 877-4LOLLOL.
The show’s producer is Cathy Shallcross assisted by talent and product coordinators Allison McCormick and Colossia Butts. The show is produced at WXEL-TV42, a public television station in South Florida.
According to the show’s creator, Tom Madden, a former VP of Programming at NBC, “Shop Laughing will take home shopping where no man or woman has gone before.”
Madden and his wife Angela are co-founders of TransMedia Group, one of Florida’s largest PR firms. For more information about the show, contact Adrienne Mazzone at 561-750-9800 x210 or Email: amazzone@transmediagroup.com.

  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 (5-inch) corn tortillas
  • 2 (14- to 15-ounce) cans whole tomatoes in juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 large eggs

preparation

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 200°F. Stack 4 ovenproof plates on oven rack to warm.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Stack 2 tortillas in skillet and cook 30 seconds, then flip stack over with tongs and cook 30 seconds more. While second tortilla cooks on bottom, turn top tortilla over with tongs, keeping tortillas stacked. Flip stack again and cook in same manner, turning over top tortilla and flipping stack again so that both tortillas are softened and both sides puff slightly, then deflate (do not let them become browned or crisp). Wrap tortillas loosely in foil and keep warm in oven. Fry remaining tortillas in same manner, adding 1 tablespoon oil to skillet for each batch. (Do not clean skillet.)
Purée tomatoes with their juice, onion, cilantro, chipotle, garlic, and salt in a blender until very smooth. Carefully add mixture to hot skillet (it may spatter) and simmer, stirring occasionally, until salsa is slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then crack 4 eggs into skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes for runny yolks, or to desired doneness. Transfer to a plate and keep warm, covered, then cook remaining 4 eggs in remaining tablespoon oil in same manner. Season eggs with salt and pepper.
Spoon 1/4 cup salsa onto each plate and top with 2 tortillas, slightly overlapping them. Transfer 2 eggs to tortillas on each plate and top with some of remaining salsa.

(1 lb. 12 oz) diced Italian tomatoes with olive oil, oregano and garlic
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves
1 carton chicken broth
cannellini beans, drain and rinsed
1 box ditalini pasta
1 cup red or white wine (optional)
good grated cheese
Sauté diced garlic in 2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil until golden.
Add the tomatoes with liquid, broth and wine; simmer for 30-45 minutes.
Add spices (basil, and thyme, oregano) to taste. If the consistency becomes too thick, add more broth or water as desired.
After it has simmered 30 to 45 minutes, add the beans and 3/4 box of the pasta (less if you want more of a soup consistency).
Cover and remove from heat. Soup will thicken from the starch in the beans and macaroni. Stir a few times and keep covered until the pasta is cooked.
Serve with lots of grated cheese on top.
You can make a large pot and serve hot, then leave the pot on the stove and can be served at room temperature – it gets more delicious as the day goes on and the next day.
Serve with garlic bread and a green salad and plenty of extra grated cheese on the table.
