Double Dare is Back for a One-Week Engagement
Unless you were a child who happened to live near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or Orlando, Florida in the late 1980s and early 1990s, you didn’t have much of a chance of appearing on Double Dare, the snot- and syrup-caked game show that helped put cable network Nickelodeon on the map.
To celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary this year, the channel is giving you one last opportunity.
According to Entertainment Weekly, original host Marc Summers will be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con the evening of July 22 for a one-off live edition of the show. Classic obstacles like the Human Hamster Wheel, the Wringer, and the booger-encrusted Pick It are all expected to be part of the proceedings.
This will be the first time since 2000 that Summers has been involved in any official capacity with Double Dare: He’s previously hosted unofficial efforts with a Chicago improv group as well as a beer-themed homage during Philly Beer Week, Dunkel Dare. If you aren’t in San Diego, you can still catch the show on Nickelodeon’s Splat Facebook feed beginning at 9:30 p.m. PT, then watch an entire week of Double Dare highlights hosted by Summers on TeenNick beginning July 25.
