AN INTERVIEW SERIES WITH ACCOMPLISHED ARTISTS, CELEBRITIES, AND PERSONALITIES HOSTED BY GRACIE OTTO.
Breakfast with… is a series of interviews with accomplished artists, celebrities and personalities hosted by Gracie Otto. Or rather, they host her! The shows structure flips the idea of host and guest, with Gracie being hosted by the episodes guest who makes Gracie breakfast.
The unorthodox nature and charm of the show becomes immediately apparent with many of the guests admitting to not being ‘breakfast people’ and being completely inept in the kitchen.
Each episode is a small vignette of intimacy between Gracie and her long-time friends who she shares a colourful history with. In an episode with Helmut Berger, Gracie, having waited three days for Helmut to make her breakfast only for his cook to step in, deduces that the best way to have breakfast is ‘to have someone else make it for you.’
The show brakes down the walls of formality that often surrounds high-profile individuals, creating a sense of intimacy for the audience without sacrificing the privacy of the episodes guest. Tonally the show is light-hearted, unpredictable and fun with its quick editing, irreverent sense of humour and nonsense tangents.
