Smile! – Candid Camera and Host Peter Funt, Live on Stage
“Smile, you’re on Candid Camera!” Over eight different decades, nearly everyone who watches TV can happily relate to that phrase. Now Peter Funt, the show’s host, brings it to life in a laugh-filled show featuring clips, quips and great fun, Sunday, February 24 at 3:00 p.m. at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert. “Candid Camera’s 8 Decades of Smiles! With Peter Funt,” has pleased audiences nationwide. Peter’s hilarious stage comedy is blended with a behind-the-scenes peek at the show’s funniest moments. Created by Peter’s father, Allen Funt, Candid Camera is the only entertainment program to have produced new episodes in each of the last eight decades – from Allen’s start on TV in 1948, through Peter’s acclaimed runs on CBS and on TV Land. Using Candid Camera’s vast library, Peter showcases decades of fun and reveals what happened when the cameras weren’t rolling. Peter’s latest show was a “Top Pick” in People Magazine and praised by The New York Times.

“This is not just a trip down memory lane,” explains Peter. “It’s a funny, fast-paced commentary on our whacky world as seen through the Candid Camera.” In addition to special surprises, several audience members will get a chance to answer Candid trivia questions and win prizes. Joining in the live stage presentation are Peter’s son, Danny, and his niece, Katie, both of whom appeared in the TV Land version of Candid Camera. In addition to hosting over 200 episodes of Candid Camera, Peter writes a syndicated newspaper column and has appeared on many top talk shows. He is currently at work on a new version of Candid Camera for later this year.
