**The Saturday 5/20 show is SOLD OUT**
The live game show sensation returns with two new shows!
While watching endless reruns of Hollywood Squares and Supermarket Sweep during a wet Seattle winter, Claire Buss and Kat O'Hara came up with the idea to make a technicolor game show set in the living room of their house. What began as an eccentric DIY art project has blossomed into a fully functional, multi-camera television show hosted at Northwest Film Forum. The Future is 0 is a satirical, live game show, filmed in front of a studio audience. During the show, three Seattle-area artists compete in bizarre games like “Get the TV to Work” and “High-Rise Condo or New Age Band?”. Hosted by outrageous celebrity hotshot persona Clay Buff, The Future is 0 weaves together biting social commentary and imaginative visuals for an experience you won't soon forget.
After-party to follow at Northwest Film Forum, with flowing bevs and DJ Chilly!
