Now that the second season of Match Game is about to start shooting, it’s time to let you in on the famous and probably foul-mouthed roster of panelists who’ll be hanging out alongside host Darrin Rose and comedians-in-residence Debra DiGiovanni and Sean Cullen this year.
Highlights this time around are rapper Ice-T, mega-comedians Russell Peters and Rosie O’Donnell, SNL alum Norm Macdonald, Kids in the Hall’s Dave Foley, and Daily Show correspondents Kristen Schaal, Jason Jones and John Hodgman.
Returning panelists include awesome comedians Pat Thornton and Laura Cilevitz. They’ll be joined by eTalk personality Traci Melchor and CP24 Breakfast anchor Melissa Grelo, as well as InnerSpace host Teddy Wilson and his Never Ever Do This at Home co-star Norm Sousa.
We’ve also got Al Mukadam, Emma Hunter (who was a Match Game panelist last year), Paul Campbell, J.P. Mannoux, and Holly Deveaux, who are all currently shooting the upcoming CTV comedy Spun Out, starring Dave Foley. Plus there’s actor Greg Bryk, who’s slated to play father-figure werewolf Jeremy Danvers in the upcoming Space drama Bitten.
And that’s not even everyone! Additional panelists include Ennis Esmer, Bobby Lee, Kristeen Von Hagen, Ingrid Haas, Andrew Johnston, Mark Forward, Lauren Ash, Darcy Michael and Dave Merheje. Plus more to be announced in the coming weeks!
