13-Game Shows

.

Game shows have been a staple of American broadcasting from the very beginning.  All sorts of formats have been devised, from the straight-forward question and answer style of “The $64,000 Question”, to the athletic competition of “American Gladiators”.  But Christopher’s game shows incorporate one more element: 150 stars.


CELEBRITY SQUARES is a game show combining trivia questions, audience participation, and Christopher’s 150 celebrity voices.  Patterned after the star-studded 1970s television game show “Hollywood Squares”, this game features 150 celebrities in 1: Christopher.

Each match is played by two or more people (or teams) who are selected from the audience and asked to agree or disagree with the humorous and sometimes outrageous answers given by the panel of celebrities impersonated by Christopher.  A game of Tic-Tac-Toe is played between the contestants until one side achieves three-in-a-row, winning the match.

The winning contestants in the first two matches play a re-match in the Final.  Altogether, the three matches comprise an exciting, exhilarating, hilarious game of trivia.

TIME: 45-60 minutes


CELEBRITY CLUE is a game show that pits two contestants from the audience against each other in a battle of concentration and wits.  Though the first round requires the contestants only to guess a three-letter word with clues, each round is progressively more difficult, as the words become larger, and the game breeds more distraction.

The distraction is inherent in the fact that the clues in the game are enigmatically and humorously given by the 150 celebrities offered by Christopher.  Just try to concentrate on the game while Joan Rivers mounts another verbal assault on the British Royal Family…just try to extract a clue from the vehemently political ravings of radio commentator Rush Limbaugh…just try to keep your focus with Jimmy Stewart stuttering on every irrelevent word in his impertinent annecdotes.

While the audience understands every word as they alone view a completed game board, the contestants are dependent on each and every CELEBRITY CLUE!

TIME: 45-60 minutes


“HEEEERREE’S GROUCHO!”  Yes, it’s the original radio and television game show that was more an exhibition of Groucho’s wicked repartee than of the contestants’ knowledge.  After a decade-long run on national radio, “You Bet Your Life” became the highest-rated prime-time quiz show in television history and ran from 1950-1958 on Thursday evenings at 8 p.m. on NBC.

The honoree at your event will be grilled by the master of ad-libbed innuendo (or an excellent facsimile thereof).  Although George Feneman is gone now, Groucho Marx seems to be alive and well and in his prime!

TIME: 45-60 minutes

 


Okay, so CHRISTOPHER doesn’t have Ben Stein’s MONEY, nor does he have Jimmy Kimmel on staff, but with your prizes and Christopher’s fully costumed impersonation of Ben Stein, your group will have a ball, using contestants from the audience answering challenging trivia questions, and, of course, those goofy, punny categories laden with innuendo.  There’s even a “Lightning Round” in which Christopher’s Ben Stein goes head to head with the winning contestant and against the clock!

TIME: 45-60 minutes

 


“You Want to be a Millionaire?” with Regis Philbin

Well, you WON’T be a MILLIONAIRE with CHRISTOPHER, but Regis Philbin WILL ask you questions and make you laugh, and without a perky sidekick OR Gellman.

TIME: 45-60 minutes
