Snoop Dogg is going from rapper to game show host.
Snoop has signed with TBS to host the reboot of The Joker's Wild, a classic casino-style game show that aired in the '70s and '80s.
The job offer was a no-brainer for Snoop. He says, "I’m a huge fan of game shows and The Joker’s Wild was my favorite show growing up. It always matched the flavor and personality of Snoop Dogg! Me and the Snoopadelic team are excited to bring back the show and put my own personal touch on it. Get ready ya’ll, it’s gonna be a wild ride!"
The show's original host was Jack Barry, who hosted until his death in 1984.
I think Snoop is the perfect host for this silly and campy show. Can't wait to see the giant slot machine, 2017 style!
I loved watching Joker's Wild as a kid. What about you?
And Snoop Dogg is fun to watch. I enjoy his show with Martha Stewart, Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party.
