Gimme Truth!
Saturday, Mar 2 / 9:30PM / The Blue Note

The world’s greatest documentary game show returns with host Johnny St. John and an array of doc-world celebrities attempting to deduce if local videos are true or false. Johnny’s 1970s game show was taken off the air in the midst of a major scandal involving payola, an heiress and a mobster. After plastic surgery and a name change, Gotsick re-emerged a better man and has mostly put his questionable past behind him. The films cover important topics of grave concern to thinking individuals: the allure and hazards of deer hunting in drag, a Gentile’s obsession with Jewish culture, the scourge of blue jelly-like rain. Contestants are generally befuddled but through the tactical use of tequila are often able to gain a sharper discernment. At some point Johnny leads us in a stirring chorus of the theme song and it’s something to behold. Reserved ticket required, open to all passholders.
