Description

Actors line up at the back of the stage and the host then collects suggestions from the audience for occupations, objects, famous people, etc. The host takes a suggestion they like and players step forward one at a time to deliver a punchline or one-liner beginning with, "Back in my day..." They then return to their spot in line when they’re done. For example, if the suggestion was “tour guide,” the format would be “Back in my day, we didn’t have tour guides, we just got lost.” After a few players step up, the host gives a new suggestion.
