    ORLANDO, Fla. - Inspired by the iconic TV game show Double Dare, Double Dare Live will be coming to the Bob Carr Theater on Friday, May 10, 2019.

    The show features two teams comprised of selected audience members competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy physical challenges and ultimately facing the legendary obstacle course.

    The highly anticipated return of the Double Dare series premiered summer 2018 on Nickelodeon, and ranked as the year’s number-one new kids show with kids 6-11, while retaining the core adult audience who grew up with the original television show. The new Double Dare is hosted by digital creator and actress Liza Koshy, with original host Marc Summers providing color commentary on the challenges and lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode. 

    Double Dare premiered on October 6, 1986 on Nickelodeon and ran from 1986-1993, making it the network’s longest running game show. Marc Summers served as the show’s original host from 1986-1993. Shortly after its debut, Double Dare became one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The series went into syndication in 1988 and was later revived as Super Sloppy Double Dare in 1989. The show also ran on broadcast television as Family Double Dare in 1988, followed by new versions on Nick, including Double Dare 2000.
