Storyline

Early on in game shows, when stars took part, they aided players -- to guess secret words on "Password," for instance. Now they're helping them guess names of VIPs in host Craig Ferguson's four-round competition set in a party atmosphere. The celebrity/contestant pairs must identify the famous -- actors, athletes, politicians, cartoon characters, etc. -- based on improvised clues for a chance to win $20,000. The celebrity connection extends behind the cameras; actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette are among executive producers of a show based on board game "Identity Crisis." Written by Jwelch5742

Craig Ferguson is fun no matter how you slice it.
2 April 2016 | by DisneygrrrlSee all my reviews

Fast-paced and fun, at times you find yourself wondering how stupid some people can be, but then it makes us feel all the smarter. And whether contestants are truly connecting with their friend and assigned celebrity and getting the answers right from a word or two, or unable to identify Porky Pig by the clue "That's all, folks!", Craig Ferguson is worth the price of admission. He can make any show a party with his quick wit, shameless shenanigans in silly voices and physical comedy. He brings out the best in every celebrity who shows up, they clearly feel comfortable enough to relax and be silly too. Craig isn't mean but can do some good-natured ribbing when someone does something really lame, and you feel like saying "Thank you!" Watch the clips on the show's website and you'll be hooked.
