Ken Ober kicks major butt!
16 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

One of the best game shows in television history, I didn't even remember that Adam Sandler was Stud Boy until I saw this webpage! "Plot" of show was that three contestants answered questions from recliners in Ken Ober's basement. Lots of good comedy as well as real quiz action. Ken Ober is, in my mind, one of the funniest guys to ever appear on television - sort of the Chris Berman of the comedy/rock/quiz world - but he's never been given much of a vehicle to work with beyond this show. There's still time on the clock........
