Passionate Proclamations With Gilbert Gottfried

|

The legendary stand-up discusses "crossing the line" in comedy. Then, in his signature voice, he whispers sweet nothings into your ear in a game about famous romances throughout history.

Rap It Up

|

We're wrapping up the show with a game featuring the letters R-A-P. All answers contain those letters in consecutive order. For example, "a long-haired lady in fairy tales" is "Rapunzel."

Cultured Film Quotes

|

We love low-brow film, but every once in a while, we crave high culture. In this game, we've classed up a few famous movie quotes with the names of important historical figures: "I'll be Bach."

Everything But The 'Y'

|

There are words...and then there are super words! Supervocalics are words that include each of the vowels A, E, I, O and U, like "tambourine." All of the answers in this game share this special power.

Go Johnny, Go!

|

Go, Johnny Coulton, go! Our one-man house band plays the Chuck Berry classic "Johnny B. Goode" with the lyrics rewritten to be about other famous guys named John. Can you sing your way to victory?

The Time Machine

|

Travel back to 1914. All questions must be answered from the vantage point of that year, such as, how many stars are on the US Flag? But be quick: WWI is about to start and the Wi-Fi here is terrible.

The Big Score

|

We wish we were as enthusiastic about anything as announcer Andres Cantor is about a soccer ball going into a net. Play a game about words or names that contain the sound "go," like "GOOOOO-pher!"
