Dating game improv characters
The 1960s television show The Dating Game featured three contestants who competed for a date with a bachelorette.
As the bachelorette could not see the contestants, she would ask love connection questions and base her choice off the answers.
The contestants call out the categories and dollar amount, the audience provides the “answer” for that category; the performers then have to make up the questions based on the original category and the audience “answer.” “Alex” decides who buzzes in first, and if their question is correct.
When a performer does not use the subsequent letter, the audience will buzz them out, allowing a new performer to tag in.Four performers sing a song about a member of the audience, to a blues tune, one line at a time.
