NBC’s Tom Cavanagh goes from down-home Stuckeyville to the Las Vegas Strip as he hosts NBC’s “Extreme Variety,” a new one-hour variety showcase of provocative acts with a contemporary edge taped in Las Vegas and produced by NBC Studios. The special, videotaped earlier this summer at Le Theater des Arts at Bally’s Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, includes a colorful mélange of aerial, gymnastic, novelty and animal acts, including: Brad Byers, a sword swallower who fits seven sabers down the hatch; the Garzas, a trio of “strongman” brothers; contortionist Jeff Brennan who can fit his entire body through the head of tennis racquet; Todd Robbins, who eats light bulbs; archer Paan Moretti and his crossbow “arrows of death” and others. Paul Buccieri is the executive producer.
