Storyline

Host Jimmy Carr offers players a chance to win prizes if they can answer some fairly simple questions. The catch is that while he's doing the asking, they have to put up with varied attempts to throw them off track--having bottles broken over their heads, guzzling hot sauce, being tossed around by pro wrestlers, and so forth. The final question round puts the big prize itself at risk of damage or outright destruction. Written by Alan Back

Just funny
10 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Distraction is a hilarious show. The questions are certainly not complicated, and the gameplay isn't complex, it's just people answering easy questions for a car.

The only catch is that they must answer those questions while doing some sort of task. Sometimes the task is easy like pushing a buzzer, other times the task is funny, and then some are just humiliating. The winner wins a car, and then there is a special bonus round. This part is usually the funniest, seeing the look on the contestant's face after they get a question wrong, and get part of their car destroyed is sad, but priceless.

Jimmy Carr, the host, insults the contestants and entertains the audience with his dry, British wit, and humorous observations.("Sometimes things don't turn out like you want them to, I mean I always thought that my mom would be the one to catch ME masturbating.") Hopefully it lasts, Comedy Central is notorious for canceling quiz/game shows.(Ex: Beat the Geeks, Ben Stein's Money) It's just funny to watch.
