Two future movie superstars turn the Dating Game upside-down (In Living Color, 1990's)

A while back, we served up a Hollywood Squares parody skit from In Living Color. Series host-executive producer Keenan Ivory Wayans was able to get original Squares host Peter Marshall for a guest shot, but couldn't repeat the trick in sending up Chuck Barris' Dating Game.

Original Dating Game host Jim Lange wasn't available, so for this skit, another Jim---Carrey, that is---is a nameless "obligatory" host. Enter Wanda, the Ugly Woman (Jamie Foxx in drag) as a bachelorette. Enter silliness.

And to think, 20 years later, Carrrey & Foxx have made a few million bucks each at the box office, putting this behind them.......! No rating, as I never saw this skit on the air.
