Inside the Amy Studio

Inside the Actors Studio is the Emmy-nominated, longest-running original series on the Bravo cable television channel, hosted by James Lipton. The program, which premiered in 1994, is currently taped at Pace University's New York City campus. Most of the show is a one-on-one interview conducted by Lipton followed by the host submitting a questionnaire to the guest. The questionnaire concept was originated by French television personality Bernard Pivot, after the Proust Questionnaire. The ten questions Lipton asks are:

What is your favorite word? creative
What is your least favorite word? hate
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? loud art, texture, serendipitous experiences
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally? thoughtlessness
What sound or noise do you love? laughter
What sound or noise do you hate? crashing metal pans
What is your favorite curse word? fuck
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? writer
What profession would you not like to do? sales
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? well done; way to reach your potential
