Casting Announced for December 4–5 Shows of "The MisMatch Game" with Host Dennis Hensley

Contact: Gil Diaz

For the first time in nearly two years, it’s time once again to “get ready to match the stars” live and in person. Dennis Hensley’s The MisMatch Game will take the stage at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre for two riotously unpredictable performances on Saturday, December 4, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 5, at 7 p.m.

Creator, co-producer, and host Dennis Hensley will be joined onstage by a panel of some of LA’s most creative, outrageous, and unhinged comic minds. Since its debut in 2004, The MisMatch Game  has raised more than $160,000. The evenings will include kitschy prizes for volunteer contestants from the audience. Hensley and company are once again generously donating the proceeds to benefit the Center’s full range of free and low-cost programs and services. 

The cast on Saturday will include (in alphabetical order): Julie Brown (Queen Elizabeth), Danté (Jack Nicholson), Drew Droege (Tanya Roberts), Daniele Gaither (Wendy Williams), Rebekah Kochan (Paris Hilton), and Mitch Silpa (TBA). On Sunday the cast will feature Drew Droege (Tanya Roberts), Nadya Ginsburg (Cher), Christopher Lyons (Paul Lynde), Felix Pire (Santa), Marc Samuel (Morgan Freeman), and Lory Tatoulian (Sharon Osbourne). All appearances are subject to change. Visit for updates.

The MisMatch Game regularly fills the house at its irregularly scheduled gigs at the Renberg Theatre. Audiences keep coming back for the razor’s-edge improv and the racy, anarchic, and decidedly un-PC wit and wildness. The Advocate honored The MisMatch Game with a “10 Best Theatre” citation that said, “This recurring Los Angeles happening re-imagines the ‘70s TV game show The Match Game with full-camp and excellent sub-lebrity impersonations.”

General admission is $15, and tickets are available online at or by phone at 323-860-7300. Proof of covid vaccination, ID, and indoor masking will be required. The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre is located at 1125 N. McCadden Place (one block east of Highland, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard), in Hollywood, 90038. Free underground parking is available.
