Since Chuck Barris staunchly refused to revive his seminal show, The Dating Game, for Kings County, the all-purpose bar/tattoo parlor has opted instead for Sam Rockwell (who played Barris in 2002’s Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) as the host. That’s right, the goth-friendly saloon is putting on a Dating Game-esque variety show that thrives on offending.
Considering Kings County is Bushwick’s leader in the crass and crude (see: Bushwick’s Smallest Labia Contest), it’s only natural that they would continue to one-up themselves with entertainment such as this. Not only hosted by Rockwell, the game will also feature commentary from some of the leading drag queens of Bushwig–which means each female contestant is pretty much guaranteed to go home with someone who’s missing a dick.
Papua NuHorny, the co-host of this Saturday’s inaugural show, told The Burning Bush, “I’ve gathered together some of my raunchiest material. We’re talking Bernardo Betrolucci offensive.” If you can get through the show as a contestant without cringing, however, you’re guaranteed a twenty-five dollar gift certificate to Tina’s, which we suppose is better than two gift certificates to Walker Bros. Pancake house à la Cady Herron in Mean Girls.
