Game shows have been on our TVs since the British show Spelling Bee came on the air in 1938. Unfortunately, Spelling Bee never had a live and vibrant audience to cheer on the contestants and bring the show to life. If you are in Los Angeles and wish to be a participant in a live game show audience, then this list might help.

Idiotest, hosted by Ben Gleib, has teams of two attempt to solve puzzles and brainteasers based on pictures displayed on a screen in front of them. The puzzles are supposed to be very easily solvable and simple, which leads to the hilarity of the show. The answers to puzzles require a quick mind and keen skills in observation. Only one of the two teams gets to go to the final round and have the chance to win $10,000. If you want to go down to L.A. and watch this fun show, feel free to contact the number below.

If you love trivia, then you will love Jeopardy! The show was created by the impressive Merv Griffin after he and his wife discussed pitching trivia shows on a plane flight. His wife jokingly stated how giving the answers first might help executives actually enjoy trivia, and the rest is history. The show started in 1964, and at the time no one knew the success that would be for decades to come. With over 6,000 shows and plenty more to go, you too can be a part of this history making game show’s audience.
