CBS Mornings: Al Gore

On Wednesday, May 3, 2024, CBS Mornings welcomes Marc Summers, the American television personality, comedian, game show host, producer, and talk show host. Summers is known for his work on various shows, including Nickelodeon’s “Double Dare” and Food Network’s “Unwrapped.”

Former Nickelodeon host Marc Summers is inviting audiences to take a trip down memory lane with his new Off-Broadway show, “The Life and Slimes of Marc Summers.” The one-man show, written by Alex Brightman, with music by Drew Gasparini, offers a unique blend of memoir and interactive game show.

Summers, now 72, rose to fame as the host of the children’s game show “Double Dare” on Nickelodeon in the 1980s and 1990s. With his signature toothy smile and exuberant cadence, he captivated a generation of television viewers. But there was more to Summers’ story than met the eye, as he faced immeasurable challenges behind the scenes.

In “The Life and Slimes of Marc Summers,” audiences are treated to an intimate theatrical adventure that explores Summers’ extraordinary journey, both on-screen and off. The show delves into Summers’ career trajectory, from his iconic role on “Double Dare” to his two-decade-long association with the Food Network as the host of “Unwrapped” and executive producer of “Dinner: Impossible” and “Restaurant: Impossible”.

The Off-Broadway production, which began performances on February 14, 2024, at the New World Stages in Manhattan, offers a unique format that combines storytelling with interactive elements. According to Summers, bringing the show to New York felt like a surreal dream, and he is immensely grateful to the talented duo of Brightman and Gasparini for their brilliant book and music.

CBS Mornings airs Friday May 3, 2024 from 7:00-9:00 AM on CBS.
