Project Main Details
Misguided - First, we REPLACE tour guides at national landmarks, historic sites, breweries, stadiums and other tourist destinations with FAKE GUIDES -- members of our IMPROV COMEDY TROUPE. Unsuspecting tourists think they’re getting a real tour, but we (the audience) know they’re being PUNK’D. Our FAKE guide starts out with REAL information -- great “water cooler” facts. Just when the tour group feels comfortable with its tour guide, the guide starts to sprinkle in FAKE INFORMATION. That’s when the Game Begins! To win big, you need to be smart and speak up! But don’t expect our guides to make it easy, though. They will do their best to convince our group they know best.

HOST: Here’s how it works… we’ve replaced the regular tour guide with our man John. He, along with his Misguided cronies… will present a series of increasingly ridiculous facts to our unsuspecting tourists. The first tourist to realize he’s being had wins the grand prize… Plus they can all earn money along the way by participating and answering questions. Sound like fun? Let’s go!
MIKE: I’m picking Joel to win. This guy trusts no one!
STUCKY: I’m going with Michael. He looks like the kind of guy who corrects your grammar on Twitter.
MIKE: What kind of single woman in her 20’s goes on a guided tour by herself? History nerd looking for a boyfriend. That’s who.
STUCKY: Lot of native New Yorkers… John doesn’t stand a chance! The rest of the players are all longshots, in my opinion.
MIKE: He might just be a street performer who wandered over.
STUCKEY: We’ll know if he holds his hat out for tips.
STUCKY: He looks like he just wants to sell his used waterbed on Craigslist.
MIKE: I vote him most likely to get mugged before the tour is over.
STUCKY: And here’s everyone’s 5th grade teacher.
MIKE: Those are your contestants, let’s get Misguided!
HOST: Time for phase one, where we bait the trap with some real facts and easy questions. Each correct answer is worth $50.
HOST: And our tourists are stumped right out of the gate! Look at them struggle to subtract 100 from 2013!
MIKE: She’s technically right… but no human being has ever expressed the year that way.
STUCKEY: I think she’s so smitten with our tour guide, she can’t speak!
STUCKEY: (OFF OF LIA “WE COULD GET A DRINK”) So flirty! Easy, Lia! It may be 5 o’Clock somewhere...But according to the giant Tiffany clock, NOT at Grand Central. Get your head in the game, girl!
HOST: For every physical challenge our tourists perform they win $25.
HOST: That physical challenge was easy enough, but who will step up now as the questions get harder?
MIKE: Suddenly, the country bumpkin longshot is the Cinderella of this tournament.
STUCKEY: Now the other players have to get Richie or die tryin’!
MIKE: Good one!
STUCKEY: (OFF OF GABRIEL CBS ANSWER) Not bad for a guy who doesn’t own a TV.
MIKE: He has a TV. Just no cable. Or electricity.
MIKE: Nice one, Big E! Something tells me he’s logged some serious couch time during more than one Law & Order marathon.
STUCKEY: If those cushions could talk!
MIKE: Not only does Richie answer every question, now he stumps the tour guide. That’s a power move worth $100!
STUCKEY: For the record, Grand Central’s marble came from quarries in Tennessee.
MIKE: How do you know that?
STUCKEY: Saw a documentary on the Marble Channel.
MIKE: So far, Richie Rich is in the lead… but it’s still anybody’s ballgame.
HOST: Now entering phase 2… of our Mislead round! From here on, our tour guide’s “facts” get more and more absurd. But will anybody call him on it? Let’s pick up the action as John turns everyone’s attention to the ceiling…
HOST: Grand Central’s ceiling was actually designed by painter Paul César Helleu. NOT “Steve Angelo”
MIKE: Unbelievable! John actually got people to lie on the ground of Grand Central Terminal. Except for Richie Rich and our Celtic Skeptic, Joel, they’re just copping a squat. And Barb is sitting. No money for them!
STUCKY: Can’t say as I blame them, though. I don’t even like the bottom of my shoes to touch that floor.
MIKE: (OFF OF JOHN “SNOW ANGELS”) More like germ angels! But Gabriel joins in the fun! Hey, why not? He is one with the Earth.
STUCKEY: I think that stairway only leads to the food court.
MIKE: Yeah. It’s more like “Stairway to Quizno’s”
MIKE: How can these people believe Barbara Walters was down to party?
STUCKEY: Well, it was the ‘70’s.
MIKE: Maybe the 1870s.
MIKE: Are we at a bait shop? Because Lia is buying this hook, line and sinker!
STUCKEY: She’s so into John, it’s adorable.
STUCKEY: Everyone else seems to be getting a sense that something’s up… you can practically see the question marks over their heads. Yet no one’s called our tour guide’s bluff yet.
MIKE: Now’s gonna be their chance, because we’re about to leave all logic behind!
HOST: Now entering Phase 3, where the lies just get bigger and bigger…
STUCKEY: Next stop, Crazy Town. All aboard! Here’s where our tour guide turns the nonsense nozzle up full blast.
MIKE: As you can see, we got 2 minutes and $5,000 on our Super Bonus Clock o’ Bull! Those numbers are gonna start dwindling fast. The first person to call BS on our tour guide will win however much money is left on the clock. Anyone can win this thing. Even Barb! Ready?
HOST: Start the clock!
HOST: $1000 in 1913 is equal to about $25,000 in today’s dollars. NOT a hundred billion.
STUCKEY: What IS that inflation rate?
MIKE: I was told there’d be no math.
STUCKEY: From what I’ve learned talking to old people, everything in the old days cost a nickel. So $1000 seems reasonable to me.
MIKE: No one’s biting, Lia looks lovesick, and there’s only about a minute left on the bonus clock…Stuckey, I think John has no choice. He has to pull out the big guns.
STUCKEY: I hate to say it, but it’s time…
MIKE: Come on, people! “The Nutsy Party!” Don’t you want to win money? How much easier can we make this?
STUCKEY: Somebody stop this lunatic before he lies again!
STUCKEY: (OFF OF LIA “I BELIEVE YOU”) Of course she does! This girl is completely crushed out on our tour guide.
MIKE: Hey, chicks dig the bad boys, right? At least the guys in a uniform.
MIKE: Someone’s gonna step up… I can feel it… I think it’s gonna be Elliott!
STUCKEY: So close! But he’s still on board! John’s got them under his spell! I’m telling you, this dude could sell butt implants to J-Lo!
MIKE: Are you kidding me!? She’s not just buying this lame story, she literally wants to invest in it!
MIKE: Stop the clock! Joel just asked if the opening day is April First. That’s April Fool’s Day.
STUCKEY: To me, that’s a polite way of saying “Bullshit!!!” (ALT: Balderdash! Baloney! Stuff and Nonsense!)
MIKE: We have a winner! But poor Elliott looks devastated! I think he really wanted to go on that magic underwater train.
STUCKEY: Meanwhile, our Celtic Skeptic Joel rode the Chunnel to victory. Let’s recap the final standings.
HOST: By stopping the clock with 23 seconds left, Joel wins $1,100. Combined with his previous winnings, that’s $1,125.
After a fast start, Richie Rich finishes with $275… which is about $12 in 1913 money… And Lia won the greatest consolation prize of all… Love!
