Match Game DC.com, produced by Kerri Sheehan, is a fun, edgy, celebrity-driven, fundraising vehicle for three local organizations: DC Film Alliance, Food & Friends, and The Washington Literacy Council. The D.C. celebrities that amiably volunteer their time include: Arch Campbell, Tim Tate, Amy Austin, Joe Barber, Phillipa Hughes, and Councilmember David Catania.
The Host of Match Game DC.com is the glib Matt Stephan, and the Announcer & Auctioneer is Todd Gardner, a witty, stand-up comic kind of guy. The Production Team includes: Director Jon Gan, Producer Kerri Sheehan, Writer Rance Goff, Set Designer & Builder Sean Hennesey, Costumer Marie Schneggenburger, and Lighting Designer Marianne Meadows.
In the Game, two audience contestants are chosen to compete against each other. Their goal is to match their answers, to a particular question, with the answers of the celebrity guests. And let me say this, by no means would these Q & A’s be meant for Gene Rayburn’s old TV show. This is ultimately an X-Rated version of the old game – and that is where the fun begins and ends.
The second part of the show is an actual auction of items during commercial breaks. The most expensive item that was auctioned was a “Private Party at Phillipa Hughes’ Balcony Bash!” This item raised $500. In total, $1,430 was raised for the three charities.
So…. if you want to see a humorous X-Rated game show; see some of DC’s finest hamming it up; and be part of an event that benefits three local charities – Match Game DC.com is for you. You will most assuredly have some good laughs – and leave the theater with a smile on your face!
Running Time: Approximately 90 minutes.
