Liar's Club is an American comedy game show, produced by Ralph Andrews that had three syndicated runs. It was first seen in 1969 with Rod Serling as host, and returned for a three-season run from 1976-1979, after airing as a local series on Los Angeles' KTLA in 1974-75 season. Bill Armstrong was the original host, soon succeeded by Allen Ludden, with Bill Berry and Joe Seiter sharing the announcing duties.
It was later revived for almost one year from 1988-1989 as The New Liar's Club; Chicago native Eric Boardman was the host, and former emcee Bill Armstrong was announcer. This version was produced by Blair Murdoch at CKVU-TV in Vancouver, with Stan Litke as the director for the first half of its run (from his employer, CFAC/CKKX in Calgary), later replaced by Dave Stewart. A pilot for a new version in 1996 was done with Ed McMahon hosting, but the series did not sell. The title is a spin on the Friars Club.
