Following critical acclaim as IFC's outspoken host on Henry's Film Corner, a weekly series The Henry Rollins Show had premiered Saturday, April 1 at 10:00pm EST with Henry sitting down with Oscar winning director, Oliver Stone. As well as a musical performance from indie queens, Sleater-Kinney. This Saturday Night Henry welcomes Jeff Bridges and Ben Harper as special guests.
Henry Rollins, the articulate and opinionated former lead singer of Black Flag, front man of the Rollins Band, actor, author and spoken word artist, will continue to give us his unique take on the current state of pop culture, politics and everything entertainment, for better or worse. The Henry Rollins Show takes an uncensored approach to talk show programming with an independent voice that strikes a brilliant balance of humor, angst, art and intellect.
During each 30-minute episode, the outspoken Rollins offers topical, subversive, no-holds-barred debates in IFC's uncut, uncensored environment. Previous visitors to the Film Corner couch have included Philip Seymour Hoffman, Billy Bob Thornton, Penelope Cruz, Crispin Glover, Rob Zombie and Don Cheadle. A wider range of guests on The Henry Rollins Show will include personalities from film, television, music, comedy and politics.
Each episode of The Henry Rollins Show features a performance from some of the most respected and cutting-edge artists in music today, including Sleater-Kinney, John Doe, Frank Black, Dashboard Confessional, Ben Folds and Death Cab for Cutie. IFC offers artists the rare opportunity to perform their music completely uncensored, in its intended form. Performances are 'live in studio' and filmed exclusively for IFC at The Bombshelter, a state-of-the-art recording studio in Los Angeles, owned by Eric Kretz of Stone Temple Pilots. These performances offer viewers a unique look at their favorite musicians.

"Teeing Off" offers a unique and irreverent take on the traditional monologue, as Rollins rants on everything from pop culture to politics to the guy who annoyed him at the grocery store.
