American audiences have long been fascinated by game shows. The first television game show in the United States was the religious-sounding Truth or Consequences, which premiered on July 1, 1941, as a one-day experiment on New York station WNBT. It would return in 1950, hosted by popular radio producer Ralph Edwards, the TV version featured Jack Bailey (of Queen for a Day) and later the legendary Bob Barker. Are you smarter than your 8th grade nun? follows in the footsteps of these game shows. Written by Vicki Quade, co-creator of the hit comedy, Late Nite Catechism, this game show features willing viewers who will compete in teams to see who was paying attention and who was daydreaming in school. The play, produced by Nuns4Fun Entertainment, will feature the talents of Vicki QuadeNancy Greco, Rose Guccione and Liz Cloudsharing the roles of emcee and grade 8 nun, who will spin the wheel and land on any topic that comes up.
Think you can remember what your 8th grade nun was trying to teach you? In this comedy game show, contestants are quizzed on topics such as history, geography, arithmetic, science, civics and a few more! If you answer too many questions wrong, you’ll end up in purgatory, where you’ll have to answer a religious question to get out. Along the way, they will learn a lot more about their Catholic or religious upbringing and will also receive a small catechism lesson. In other words, they will laugh at their sins! Winners receive a free pass to paradise, and for some, a Get Out of Hell Free card! Prizes range from glow-in-the-dark rosaries, holy cards and Bible keychains. Exactly the kind of stuff your 8th grade nun would give to her favorite students.
