Henry Winkler served as special guest last night (Wednesday Feb 16th) on The FIX-UP Show at the ACME Theatre in Los Angeles, following the previous week's guest Margaret Cho. Winkler tweeted last night after the show... "Wow, did I have a funny time and the couple who won seemed to be enjoying each other."

The show hosted and created by J. Keith van Straaten, along with co-hostess Patti Goettlicher, has proven to be as successful in Los Angeles as it had in New York. "Perhaps it is the effect of the recent holiday (Valentines Day), but the response from personalities, participants and partons alike is very exciting," says Van Straaten. The show is now available to wider audience as it begins to stream LIVE on the web at 8:15pm-ish (11:15ish EST), for the first time with the recent guest appearance of Henry Winkler.

It's "I've Got A Secret" meets "Love Connection"- live on the Los Angeles stage. A dating show with heart. Spontaneity, hilarity and civility are guaranteed. Old or young, gay or straight, all are given a chance to find love on THE FIX-UP SHOW, which follows a simple format. A panel of three people -- two who know an eligible single well, and one celebrity who has never met the person -- interrogates potential suitors to make a match. The matched pair wins a dinner at Amalfi restaurant and goes on a real date! How did our panel do? Everyone finds out the next week and then another pair are matched. 

Performances are scheduled on Wednesdays at 8pm at the ACME Comedy Theatre (135 N. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles. 90036) and tickets run $15 at door or $12 in advance by calling (646) 450-4FIX [4349] or at www.thefixupshow.com, where live feeds are also available.

Upcoming celebrity matchmaker appearances include: February 23 (w/Tippi Hedren). March 2 (w/Bruce Vilanch), March 9 (w/Alan Thicke), March 16 (w/Scott Thompson), joining a long list of other respected industry personalities including Drew Carey, Walter Koenig, Susan Oleson, Eve Plumb, Will Wheaton, Dick Cavett, Alex Borstein and many more, who have been lending their dating expertise to attempt to match up couples in this modern day match game
