Don't think Millionaire Matchmaker is a realistic show? Then maybe Hundredaire Matchmaker is more your style. It's hosted by comedian Liam McEneaney.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

And today's last word in business comes from a comedian. He's got his own more realistic version of the TV reality show "Millionaire Matchmaker."

(Soundbite of Bravo's reality show, "Millionaire Matchmaker")

PATTI STANGER (Host, "Millionaire Matchmaker"; Author of "Become Your Own Matchmaker - 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate"): Meet my millionaire. I'm a third generation matchmaker with an extremely high success rate.

INSKEEP: That's the show on TV. And you can feel the excitement.

At any event hall in Brooklyn tonight, Liam McEneaney will kick off "Hundredaire Matchmaker."

Mr. LIAM MCENEANEY (Comedian): You know, you're not meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right. Youre meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right in front of you, willing to talk to you.

INSKEEP: This is for singles with mere hundreds in their bank accounts and for those who will not be turned be off when their date offers them Bud Light instead of a Chardonnay.

INSKEEP: That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
