Growing up I always wanted to be on Double Dare, and I finally got to live out that childhood dream when I saw The Life & Slimes of Marc Summers, Off-Broadway in New York City at New World Stages!

Wait until you hear the Behind-The-Curtain story I told Marc during this interview about that moment.

Originally released as a podcast episode, I am so excited to share the video of my interview with My Entertainment Idol Marc Summers, who has certified himself a place in television history. As the host of Nickelodeon's Double Dare & Food Network's Unwrapped, Marc helped put these two networks on the TV map.

Now, Marc is bringing his story to New World Stages in The Life & Slimes of Marc Summers, written by Alex Brightman & music by Drew Gasparini.

In this interview, Marc answered my call to reveal:
  • What scene in The Life and Slimes of Marc Summers is the hardest to perform
  • How he looks at life differently after being diagnosed with cancer
  • What is something he hasn't shared with anyone before
  • Transporting Double Dare from the 80s to today
