DUTY FREE LIVE! Unauthorized Imported Game Shows’ returns to Caveat TOMORROW, March24! The Game Show and Segments Research Club creates and performs this show that brings international game show format to (authorized) life by New York’s best comedians. So what is The Game Show and Producers Research Club, you may be asking? Why, I will tell you! It is a group of comedians, writers, technologists, and cultural consultants who are passionate fans and producers of game shows and segments. Well, already then! Led by Kent Morita, Grant Mulitz, and Christopher Morucci, TOMORROW’S show will be an unauthorized localized production of segments from two smash-hit international game shows, “Unbelievable Truth” and “Don’t Knock It Till You Try It”, from the UK and Japan, respectively. 

“The Unbelievable Truth” is an award-winning British comedy panel show on BBC Radio 4 hosted by all-time comedy crush, David Mitchell (who has been on more British panel shows than he probably wishes to be on). Comedians each read a short lecture they’ve written about a given subject, which is entirely made up except for five true facts, which they must attempt to smuggle past the other players as sneakily as possible. The rest of the panel must guess, in real time, which facts are the real ones. Ooooh, we like sneaky games!

“Tunnels No Minasan No Okagedeshita” (Tunnels’ Thanks to Everyone!) was a Japanese gameshow hosted by Tunnels, a legendary Japanese comedy duo. DUTY FREE! is adapting a specific segment from that show called “Kuwazu Girai” (Don’t Knock It Till You Try It). Each of our guests will eat THREE dishes that they claim they love… but one of them is a dish that disgusts them. Each contestant will be doing their best to hide their disgust from the audience and the other contestants, while being asked tough questions that only a person who actually likes the dish should be able to answer without hesitation. Uh oh, it like old skool Survivor meet Jeopardy!

Your players for the evening will include: Aarushi Agni (Weak & the Knees, BoogieManja), Chandler Dean (West Wing Writers, Lovett or Leave It, The New Yorker, The New York Times), Meredith Dietz (The Onion, Reductress), Tom Buffalo Powers (Yes Chef, UCB, BoogieManja), & Zola Ray (The Onion, Reductress)!
