How many people remember watching Family Feud growing up? I know my family did! We played right along at home with our own buttons, had our team captains, and everything. We would all yess, “Survey Says!” when it was time. This past time I was out in LA I had a childhood dream come true and was able to attend a LIVE taping of an episode. The episode we watched has the lovely
- Ed Asner – 7-Time Emmy Award winning (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Lou Grant,” “Up” ) and his family
Vicki Lawrence – Emmy Award-winning comedienne best-known for her part in the legendary cast of the “Carol Burnett Show” and her family
It was hysterically funny! As soon as I find out when it airs I’ll update you! Not only will you laugh and have a good time, but you might see me waving or dancing in the background…..WHICH by the way I had no idea about beforehand. So when they are taping these episodes of the gameshow they need the audience to keep up the energy in between set ups. Which meant dancing and signing. I felt like I was doing a zumba routine. 😉 It was so much fun.
Also, Mr. Steve Harvey himself chatted with us during breaks and he would share some of his stand up comedy, answer questions, or just share what I call some #truthknowledge That man truly has a gift. I laughed so hard AND left the show inspired as well. He’s an amazing person.
We also had a few moments on stage where we could take pictures so it was like a madhouse 25 bloggers running around for 5 minutes of pictures. Trying to capture all the iconic things from the show.
