Tinder Live [1][2][3] is a stand-up comedy show created and hosted by comedian Lane Moore[4][5][6] where she goes on the dating app Tinder and interacts with Tinder matches in real time.[2][7] During the show, Moore projects Tinder profiles in front of an audience and panelists help her dissect profiles before swiping left (no) or right (yes).[8]

Called one of the best comedy shows in NYC, The New York Times described it as "truly addictive entertainment...[it's] ingenious. Moore transforms the banter on a dating app into compelling long-form improvisation. Ms. Moore, a cagey and humane performer, has developed an instinct for turning the raw materials of sexually charged chat with ordinary strangers into honed and generous jokes. “Tinder Live” has a comic momentum and energy that is unusual. The way she manipulates tone and pace reveals an artist supremely confident in her form, not to mention a flirt par excellence."[9]

Moore's comedy show was also called one of the best comedy shows in NYC by The Village Voice,[10] Time Out, Brooklyn Magazine, and HelloGiggles who noted the show "has all the addictive, fun qualities of a television game show. One of her show’s segments include going through Tinder profiles with the audience to come to a vote on whether to swipe left or right. This could be this generation’s version of The Dating Game." [11]

New York Magazine listed it as one of the best comedy shows, saying, "With enviable bravery, host Lane Moore utilizes Tinder to find herself a date...hilariously assessing the worthiness of profiles." [12] CBS called it one of the five best comedy shows in NYC and Brightest Young Things called it "the greatest show on earth."[13]

Tinder Live has been praised for its positivity, with Vice saying, "Moore expertly steered the crowd from mean-heartedness to substance with each match." [14] Brooklyn Based similarly said, "In anyone else’s hands this show could feel mean-spirited, or perhaps like an invasion of privacy, but Moore makes it cathartic, a bracing comedic espresso shot." [15]

Vulture [16] listed Tinder Live! in a guide to the best NYC comedy shows along with legendary shows like Assscat 3000, Whiplash, and the Comedy Cellar. Gothamist praised the show as one of their 5 Things To Do In NYC, saying it, "[transforms] the otherwise bleak and sometimes even downright horrific modern-day dating experience into a hilarious long-form improv show." [17]

The comedy show, which began in late 2013, performs upon request at bars, comedy clubs, and colleges around the United States.[18]
