It Pays To Be Ignorant

Show Summary

Jeopardy! contestants NOT wanted. This comedy "game show" was the exact opposite of programs where contestants are expected to know something. The host, Joe Flynn, would pose a silly question to the panel of comics--something with an obvious answer like, "Who's buried in Grant's tomb?". After a few minutes of jokes and bizarre reasoning, the group would agree on a preposterous answer that was inevitably wrong. The panellists played on behalf of contestants who were chosen from a dunce cap that dropped from the ceiling. The viewers were always rewarded a prize despite the celebrities' asinine conclusions. This syndicated series was an update on a popular radio and early television series from the 1940s and early 50s.
