What's My Line comes alive

From 1950 to 1975, the game show What's My Line broadcast to TV audiences. We missed it then, but we understand it featured a well-dressed panel of celebrities trying to guess the occupation of a mystery guest, who would be revealed to the audience in advance to increase hilarity. Why bring it up now? J. Keith Von Straaten has brought it back to life, on stage in Hollywood, with real cool mystery guests (Lindsay Wagner! Wil Wheaton! Dick Van Patten!) Host van Straten guides four panelists in their questioning quest most Wednesdays at 8pm; catch tonight's show and you'll see Defamer's favorite, Andy Dick, throw in his 2 cents. Or whatever else might be in his pockets.
