A great introduction to witty people
14 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember that this show introduced me to Stu Gilliam, Marty Allen, George Jessel, and Jan Murray. ***Spoiler*** The premise of the show is that celebrities would be asked questions such as Which magazine describes you best? The celebrities would give their answers, mostly humorous ones. Then, two contestants came out. They heard the question and then had to correctly guess which celebrity gave which answer. Lloyd Thaxton was the host, and he reminded me a lot of the Dick Clark/ Jimmy O'Neill disc jockey style of being a master of ceremony. The latest episode I watched also featured Dean Jones, Rose Marie, and Meredith McCrae. This show still holds up, although as with any nostalgia trip, I remember other episodes being funnier.
