Dennis Hensley’s The MisMatch Game first took the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Renberg Theatre by storm in 2004 at the community-friendly ticket price of $15, and that has never changed. Eighteen years later, the unstoppable comedy phenomenon is set to pass the $200,000 mark in money raised for the Center. It’s time once again to “get ready to match the stars!” as The MisMatch Game takes the stage for two riotously unpredictable performances on Saturday, May 21, at 8 p m. and Sunday, May 22, 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 $180,000. 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. Casting news will be posted at lalgbtcenter.org/theatre as it becomes available. All appearances are subject to change.

The MisMatch Game is a Los Angeles cult favorite, regularly drawing multitudes of fans to its irregularly scheduled gigs at the Renberg Theatre. The Los Angeles Times called this outrageous parody of the classic ‘70s game show “witty, ribald ... an adventure in surrealist era-bending.” 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 press and excellent sub-lebrity impersonations.”

General admission is $15, and tickets are available online at lalgbtcenter.org/theatre or by phone at 323-860-7300. Proof of COVID vaccination, I.D., and indoor masking will be required (protocols subject to change). 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 available.
