HUNTINGTON — On your mark, get set, go make a mess.

The messiest game show on TV is now the messiest game show on the road. “Double Dare Live” is coming to Huntington, bringing all the action and excitement of Nickelodeon’s hugely popular TV show to the stage. All the slime soaking, pie plastering and booger busting will be hosted by the “Double Dare” legend himself Marc Summers as the show comes to the Big Sandy Superstore Arena on Saturday, April 6.

Tickets to Nickelodeon’s “Double Dare Live” stage show go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 25, and are available at the arena box office, www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Inspired by the iconic TV game show “Double Dare,” “Double Dare Live” 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 No. 1 new kids show with viewers ages 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 Summers providing color commentary on the challenges and lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode.

“Hosting the “Double Dare Live” tour couldn’t be any more exciting, and I look forward to continuing to bring the fun and messiness of “Double Dare” to audiences across the country,” Summers said. “Doing the show again with my sidekick Robin will fulfill childhood dreams of the generation that grew up with us and introduce this classic show to the next generation.”

“Double Dare” originally premiered on Oct. 6, 1986, on Nickelodeon, and ran from 1986-93, making it the network’s longest-running game show. Summers served as the show’s original host from 1986-93. 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.
