The #DateMe An OkCupid Experiment is heralded as the ultimate social experiment of the current generation. The age of Tinder, OkCupid, and a multitude of online apps where a single swipe can determine your future presents a hotbed for disappointment, low self-worth, and self-esteem. Robyn Lynn Norris started this social experiment which led to the live show called ‘Undateable,’ whose success led to the creation of the Broadway production, # DateMe An OkCupid Experiment.
Robyn is an actress and producer for shows like Off the Top, Dis Raps for Hire and This Is Mark Twain @AOL.com. Her personal experiment has translated well onto the stage and is a perfect mix of musical, scripted comedy, and improv comedy. The actors do a terrific job at keeping the audience in splits and portraying multiple characters.
The #DateMe An OkCupid Experiment will strike a chord with anyone who has ever signed up on a dating app and has either managed to find love or is in the process of finding love. It is also a fantastic trip down memory lane for those who have long left the anxious days of online dating behind them. Watch #DateMe An OkCupid Experiment on Broadway for a shocking and exciting new show that blurs fact and fiction!
The #DateMe An OkCupid Experiment show is a theatrical presentation of the social experiment conducted by the writer Robyn Lynn Norris. She, along with her friend, Bob Ladewig, embarked upon a one-of-a-kind social experiment where they created 38 fake online identities on the dating app, Ok Cupid. These profiles were to be quirky and supposedly ‘undateable.’
The fake identities are crafted in a hilarious manner, so as to engage the viewers and entertain them. For instance, one of the identities is a 33-year-old male with the profile name of ‘BedTimeasaurus’. His introduction reads ‘I’m just a guy who loves his bed’. Another interesting identity is of a 32-year-old female with the profile name ‘Boobsandwangz’. Her introduction reads ‘It’s my lifelong dream to work at Hooters,’ which is oddly predictable. The quest is to see if any of these personalities were dateable, despite their odd quirks.
The experiment follows the journey of these 38 identities and their interactions with other members. These interactions are measured, tracked, and documented, and ultimately reveals surprising results. Watch #DateMe An OkCupid Experiment to find out what happens to these fake online personalities and whether they find someone who seeks them in spite of their oddball qualities.
