I’m astonished this hasn’t had more buzz...

It’s tears-running-down-cheek funny...

I saw a few of the episodes on UK TV, but am currently in the US, and it’s showing almost continually on a channel TruTV.

I hate practical jokes, hidden camera shows and anything that makes people embarrassed or frightened. But the USP of this show is that it is the four presenter guys who get embarrassed, make fools of themselves, and generally clown around. They are funny and endearing, in their silliness. I’m loving it.

it's really good, I've caught many episodes on Comedy Central (I think).

As you say, it's the chemistry between the guys that makes it work.

"I thought we had them?"

the earlier series (seasons) were the funniest, they do sometimes seem to be trying to hard to make it look funny, but i still keep up with it.

i could watch the tattoo and skydive punishments forever. (don't call me moustache!)
