The show where everything goes...including the clothes!

Author: Andy M.
24 November 2003

An early effort at original programming on the Playboy Channel with liberal doses of gratuitous nudity and adult humour, but it WORKS!

Hosted by stand-up comedian Kip Adotta and having two contestants (always one male and one female), Everything Goes was a risque game show which is quite similar to Hollywood Squares. Kip would ask a question to one of the three celebrity panelists who would give a funny fake answer, then give their "real" answer. The contestant then had to either agree or disagree. If the contestant chose correctly, he/she earned the right to remove an article of the opponent's clothing. If they made the wrong choice, however, they would lose a piece of their OWN clothing. The contestants wore an equal amount of clothing and were dressed in a different theme for each episode (such as Prom Night or Cops and Robbers).

Throughout the course of play, two special rounds were also used: in one, three attractive, fully-clothed women came out on stage, then disappeared behind a wall with strategically-placed doors. Then, Kip would open three doors, revealing three pairs of bare breasts. The object was for the contestant to match the breasts to the correct clothed woman. A similar round for the female contestant involved her having to match three unclothed male posteriors to their rightful owners.

At the end of the game, one final question determined the outcome of the game. Whoever won that question won the game, some prizes and the right to take off all of the other person's clothes (except his/her G-string).

Sounds really tasteless and tacky, and yes, it is, but the real entertainment in the show comes from the zany celebrities (many of them ex-regulars of "The Gong

Show") and their banter with the contestants and Adotta.

This series aired throughout the 1980s and a short compilation video was released to the rental market.

A Delightful Oddity!

9/10

I won't repeat the synopsis of this great show because others on this page have done it perfectly well.

As far as I know, this never aired in the UK, but I have seen a few episodes on videotape, and it featured in a documentary about US game shows.

Although the show is over twenty years old (or perhaps because of this), it still has a wonderful innocent sexiness about it. I mean, how many other game shows at the time promised (albeit partial) nudity?!

The celebrity guests and wacky clothes on the contestants make this show very much 'of it's time', before people could easily watch more explicit material on their televisions at home. With nostalgia very much being 'in' at the moment I think this show is crying out for a DVD re-release! C'mon Sternberg Productions, we're counting on you!!
