What's My Line Meets L.A. Woman (By Ann Magnuson)

J. Keith van Stratten is a goddamned genius! Celebrating the 50th anniversary night of WHAT'S MY LINE-LIVE ON STAGE, here we see the affable game show host with the evening's mystery guest -- defrocked California governor Gray Davis! Recognizing his excellence is livening up L.A. nightlife, J. Keith van Stratten is one of the recipients of the first annual L.A. Woman Choice People Awards (for more info pick up PAPER's new fab all-L.A. theme issue and read the column!!).  Cleverly recreating the old game show classic  on Wednesday nights at Hollywood's Acme Theater, J. Keith rarely fails to whip his audience into a frenzy every magic moment the mystery guest is revealed. Past surprises include Elliot Gould, George "Sulu" Takei, Michael and Kitty Dukakis (guess they have a lot of free time on their hands these days), Hawaii Five-0's Dano, a.k..a. James McArther (guessed by yours truly  while appearing on that week's formally attired panel) and everyone's favorite wild card, Andy Dick.
