What is We Bee Spelling?
Remember spelling bees in middle school? This is NOT THAT spelling bee.
We Bee Spelling is an interactive comedy game show and nonprofit fundraiser. Spelling is the game, but we add into the mix hilarious comedian judges, a rocking house band and all sorts of silliness to turn a nostalgic academic competition into a crazy fun party. Bees II Men -- the We Bee house band -- drive the energy with upbeat funky tunes throughout the night as comics from Comedy Central and late night TV make our spellers' task a bit more difficult (and amusing).
Spellers fundraise for great causes and then compete in the most intense etymological battle of their lives... but the audience has a say in the outcome. Spectators can donate for SABOTAGES -- playable game pieces that result in distracting challenges for spellers, like spelling words backwards or taking a mystery shot -- to trip up their friends and coworkers. Spellers stumble, we laugh, we dance, philanthropy wins.
Spell check and autocorrect, be damned! This show proves you can spell bad and still do g-o-o-d. We Bee Spelling has raised over $350,000 for philanthropic cause -- and had a silly good time doing it!
