“Game On” makes its debut on CBS on Wednesday and comedian and writer Ian Karmel still can’t believe he had the opportunity to be on the show.
The writer for “The Late Late Show With James Corden” joins actor and comedian Keegan-Michael Key, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski and legendary tennis player Venus Williams in a hilarious and unpredictable game show.
“It’s like a grown up version of Double Dare or Legends of the Hidden Temple in a kind of fun way,” said Karmel in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “There are these big obstacle courses and to start it off, we had to jump off this platform 30 feet in the air. We were all in harnesses, but to even take that first step was scary. Thankfully the harness held me.”
While there were many memorable parts of filming “Game On,” Karmel says his favorite was getting the opportunity to hang out and get to know Gronkowski and Williams.
“Game On” premieres Wednesday night at 8pm EST/PST on CBS.
James Corden challenges Venus Williams and Rob Gronkowski, stars of the new CBS comedic sports show GAME ON, to face off in a quiz of questions they must answer about each other. Right answers allow them to add a delicious ingredient to their protein shake and wrong answers force them to add items like vinegar, hot sauce and toothpaste.
