    Needs more facial hair.

    Throw away your Mad Libs, folks! The old TV show "Match Game" has zombified itself, returning to life as part of the Fringe Festival.

    For those of us who weren't born yet, "Match Game" is a (we hope) funny, fill-in-the-blank game show where two contestants match answers to risqué questions with a panel of six celebrities.

    The Studio Theater (1501 14th St. N.W.) will host the 70-minute-long shows, with five different show dates and times (so there's really no excuse not to go).

    "Match Game D.C." will feature 30 local celebrities. The event will benefit the D.C. Film Alliance, Food & Friends, and the Washington Literacy Council.

    The first show, on July 9, will feature includes Arch Campbell, CityPaper publisher Amy Austin and D.C. Councilmember David Catania. If you hold out until July 17, game players will include Amy Argetsinger and two "well-known adult video performers."

    Check out the full roster here, or go here to submit questions to air on the show.

    The game plays out for the first time Saturday, July 9 (9:30 p.m.). Four more shows will happen between July 15 and 24. Tickets are $17, but those older than age 12 must wear a $7 Fringe admission button in order to get in. To buy tickets, click here.
