Aug. 11 (UPI) -- A New York man is making some nighttime commutes a little more interesting by hosting a late night talk show aboard a subway train.

Dean Dimitruk said he boards the L train once a month on a Saturday night with his foam core desk and a skeleton crew to record late night talk show-style interviews with New Yorkers for Derailed, his YouTube talk show series.

Dimitruk said his unique format allows him to interview the city's everyday people.

"Real people can be just as interesting as celebrities," he told WPIX-TV.

He said the subway makes for a perfect talk show set.

"When there is noise, when there is bumping, that's part of the show," Dimitruk said. "You know that you are filming on the subway. That's part of the charm of the whole thing."
