Richard Sher

Says You! is the witty word game that engages and amuses audiences from Los Angeles to New York.

Recorded in front of live audiences at various locations around Boston, Says You! features six panelists -- divided into two teams of three -- that bluff, guess and expound their way through the fast-paced, 30-minute program. Host/producer Richard Sher and the panelists have a friendly intimacy that invites listeners to play and laugh along. Core panelists include public radio personality Tony Kahn, television host Barry Nolan, television producer/writer Arnie Reisman, Ladies Home Journal columnist and WBZ-TV consumer reporter Paula Lyons, public television executive Francine Achbar and columnist/critic Carolyn Faye Fox.

Originally conceived by Richard Sher as a '90s parlor game, Says You! is played in five rounds. Rounds one, three, and five are original categories that change each week. Sample categories include: "What's the difference?," "What am I doing?," and "Who-or what-came first?" The second and fourth rounds are Says You! bluffing rounds. One team is given a word to define. Only one panelist knows the actual definition, the other two panelists must each make up a definition good enough to fool the other team. "It's not easy," Sher says, "but it's a lot of fun."

In November of 2004 Says You! taped four shows in Birmningham. Special thanks to our sponsors, who made these tapings possible:
