Description US chat-show host Jerry Springer is conducting a typical episode of his outlandish confessional television show, complete with nappy-fetishists and a dancing chorus of Ku Klux Klan members, when he is suddenly shot. The second act is set in hell, where Springer conducts an infernal version of the show with Adam and Eve, Mary, Jesus, Satan and God as guests working out their differences.
