Did You Know?


One week of shows would tape in one day which is why they could ensure the same guest for 5 "days" in a row. After each episode Tom Bergeron and the panelists would change outfits and then go tape another one. See more »

****:a perfect 4 stars, a truly plentiful variety full style of comedy ever placed in.
29 April 1999 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

This show has many of sorts of ways to make you laugh like the wonderfully comic Whoopi Goldberg (Center squuare), Caroline Rhea (Sabrina TTW, actual regular), Bruce Vilanchi (Comic, writer of this show & a certain award show 1 time ago, also an actual regular), Bobcat Goldwaiht (Bobcat's Big@^& show on FX), Gilbert Gottfried (from the Disney Aladdin movie series), George Wallace (known comic), and many many more. Even if you think some of the celebs bluffs (actual name of the jokes on this show) aren't all that funny more than likely some of the other celeb.s might humor up the show for you. (oh & for those who never saw the show before know comics aren't the only ones who try to humorize the show. Just about anyone who's in the squares tries to (except for those like Kerri Strug), oh & perhaps I'll go ahead and clear some common misconceptions about the show. 1st you don't nescessarily have to live in California to be a contestant on the show, film stars(movie,T.V or both) aren't the only ones - sports to magazine people were on the squares too. Now that I cleared those up, the film has a highly quality amount of hilarious humor & funny game show antics for the new "Hollywood Squares".
