The Matchless Game Show


The game show reached its apogee in the '70s. The aftermath of free love and the counterculture crashed headlong into the last stand of smoking and drinking on television, resulting in pickled panels of celebrity guests such as Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly competing to quip the filthiest double entendre into Gene Rayburn's microphone. It was glorious, and for one night only, the art form is revived. New Line Theatre Off Line presents its popular fundraiser, That 70s Game Show! Live! Strikes Back! tonight at 8 p.m. at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; 636-699-6689 or Popular New Line actors Zachary Allen Farmer, Amy Kelly, Kimi Short and Taylor Pietz assume the roles of the celebrity panelists, while charming Mike Dowdy slips on the greasy loafers of the host. Food and drinks will be offered, and the show includes adult language and content. Tickets are $10.
