Funny You Should Ask!! was a comedy game show airing on ABC daytime.

A panel of five celebrities are asked personal questions such as "If you were born the opposite sex, what would you be doing right now?" Each celebrity gives a response. Five questions are posed.

Two contestants are now brought out. The question is read, followed by a response (four are given in a round). The contestants must match the answer to the celebrity. The contestant that matches the most answers to the celebrity in the round wins $100. A contestant matching four out of the five answers wins the "Funny Money" jackpot which starts at $100 and goes up $100 each round it is not won.

The player with the most matches at the end of the show wins a prize.

A new show under the name Funny You Should Ask is now airing in syndication. It does not follow the premise of this edition.
