This version of Funny You Should Ask plays slightly different from the original short-lived 1968 version produced by Heatter-Quigley.
Similar to Hollywood Squares, two contestants agree or disagree with answers that are given by six comedians. Round 1 is one question per comic, alternating between contestants, at $100 apiece, then round 2 for $200 and $300 in round 3. The player who accumulates the most cash wins the game, keeps the money, and plays the bonus round for $5,000. If both players are tied, then a numerical question was asked about the comedian. The contestant that comes closest is the winner.
The bonus round consists of three questions. Three correct answers augmented the winning contestant an additional $5,000, while anything less than perfection is worth nothing. The first question has three comedians giving answers where one of them is right. The second question has four possible answers while the final question has six possible answers. For each question, one answer is a joke answer, similar to a "bluff" on Squares.
- The show's theme song is Pharrell Williams - Happy.
