John had the ugliest _____ on his ______. Yeah, you can really get carried away with a phrase like that, and that’s the concept behind Match Game Live! This cheesy game show, which had a good run on television in the ’70s and ’80s, has contestants attempting to match celebrities’ answers to fill-in-the-blank questions. Now you can play along at the Bowery Poetry Club with this panel of comics and celebutards, including Frank DeCaro (of The Daily Show), Sara Benincasa (Sirius Radio), Eric Kirchberger (Comedy Central), Tara Copeland (of UCBT’s Mother), raunchy downtown songstress Jessica Delfino, and our very own Michael Musto. Contestants will be selected from the audience to compete for prizes, gift certificates, and cash! Ben Lerman hosts the mayhem.
