Comedy (Game Show): Date Night with The MacBlakes
July 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Two married comedians host their own live spin-off version of The Newlywed Game, where 3 couples compete to show who knows each other best.
Rachel Mac and Devin Blake, two married comedians living in Jackson, will open the night with a joint stand-up set discussing their marriage and parenting.
Then, one at a time, they will bring the 3 competing couples onstage for a brief interview. Once the couples have been introduced, the competition begins! Each person in each couple will have already answered questions about their spouse, and Rachel and Devin will go over these questions, one by one. For example, they will start by bringing out one of the wives and go over her answer to a question like “Who is your celebrity crush?” The wife will give her answer, THEN her husband will come out and guess her answer. If the answers match, that couple gets a point. After a number of these questions, Rachel and Devin will take a break to talk to the audience and ask them which couple they think is going to win and why. Then they will return for the second round of the game, where we’ll hear answers from the men and then ask their wives to guess. The winning couple will be able to tell their great-grandchildren that they were the best couple in all of Washington County!
