Candid Camera’s LOL Tour with Peter Funt

August 2 and 3 at 3Below Theaters in San Jose

Hilarious stage comedy with clips, quips and behind-the-scenes tales!



Smile! You’re on Candid Camera.  Candid Camera’s LOL Tour with Peter Funt” picks up where he left off at 3Below last year, presenting a multi-media romp that makes audiences Laugh Out Loud!  Peter’s hilarious stage comedy is blended with clips, quips and behind-the-scenes tales from the show’s funniest moments.

Candid Camera holds a unique place in entertainment history as the only show to have produced new episodes in each of the last eight decades – from Allen Funt’s debut in 1948 through Peter Funt’s  (Allen’s son) recent run on TV Land. Peter’s latest show was a “Top Pick” in People Magazine and praised by The New York Times.

The stage show incorporates the best Candid Camera clips in a fast-paced, laugh-filled romp through the decades. Peter’s topical humor is blended with audience participation and special surprises to make the show a great night of fun.

Peter joined his dad as co-host in the 1980s and took over as host in the 90s. Over his own four decades, Peter has hosted more than 200 network episodes. He also appears on numerous talk shows, authored the book “Cautiously Optimistic,” and writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column.

The premise of the show involved concealing cameras so as to film ordinary people being confronted with unusual (sometimes outlandish) situations. When the joke was revealed, victims would be told the show’s catchphrase, “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera.”
A “secret” of the show is that much of Candid Camera was shot in and around downtown Monterey, California. Monterey is the home of the Funt family and they kept offices there even when working in Los Angeles. Why Monterey?  Well, according to an interview given by Peter Funt to Monterey County NOW, Monterey was a cross-section of the U.S.. “It’s all here,” Funt explained. “There is no identifiable accent, no tilt toward one generation. So many people are transplants, anyway. That’s our secret ingredient.”
