Carly Fleischmann has autism and is unable to speak. She also happens to be one helluva an interviewer.
Fleischmann chatted with Hollywood star Channing Tatum in the first episode of “Speechless With Carly Fleischmann,” Fleischmann’s new YouTube series.
From her introduction alone, it’s apparent that Fleischmann, who types with one finger, is going to fulfill her dream of being a talk show host with a disarming sense of humor.
“He has been a stripper, a police officer, a secret agent, a reporter, a boyfriend to many, and soon he will dump his wife to be with me,” she says. “I welcome Channing Tatum.”
Fleischmann gets Tatum to open up on a variety of topics, including his wife’s beliefs that he doesn’t share, his escapades as a youth in suburbia, the actors he really wants to work with and the president he wants to drink with.
AutismAwareness.com calls “Speechless” “the first nonverbal talk show.” We can’t confirm that, but if this celebrity conversation is any indication, “Speechless” will get viewers talking.

Fleischmann herself summed up the showbiz venture on EllenTube.com: “Super funny.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
