ACTUAL JEOPARDY Welcomes Tom Power, Lana Gay, and Maurie Sherman
ACTUAL JEOPARDY! is doing their first ever theme show featuring some of Toronto's most clever radio personalities. On Wednesday, May 31 the show welcomes TOM POWER (host of q on CBC), LANA GAY (Indie88, Polaris Podcast), and MAURIE SHERMAN (Roz and Mocha, 92.5). They will match wits and wisdom as they go up against the big board and our ever genial and somewhat snarky host, Alex Trebek (Jan Caruana).
Actual Jeopardy is a monthly show at Bad Dog Comedy Theatre that takes the beloved night-time game show Jeopardy and puts it in front of an audience. Contestants are hand picked from the Toronto Comedy and Arts Community and each month you can see some of your favourite comedians/improvisers/personalities testing their trivia skills with general knowledge... and don't forget to respond in the form of a question!
Hosted by "Alex Trebek" (aka: Canadian Comedy Award Winner, Jan Caruana in gentle drag), the show features everything you love about Jeopardy: Daily Doubles, inane contestant interviews, patented low-key Trebek burns (boo hiss). But what Actual Jeopardy has over Jeopardy is that in each round, there is a Pot Pourri category where the audience gets to choose the question. As they shout out different categories, "Alex Trebek" is forced to test his general knowledge and come up with a question, for that category, right on the spot!
Actual Jeopardy is perfect for people who love Jeopardy and always wanted to see how the sausage is made, people who love trivia and people who love watching TV, but know that they should get out of their house at least once a month (we don't even mind if you show up in your jammies!)
