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

It Okay By Me.
6 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jimmy Carr is pretty good with game shows I'd say, not to good at stand-up comedy though. I kind of liked this show, I just don't understand why it was on Comedy Central. It should have been on The Game Show Network. Never the less, my favorite challenges are the hot sauce challenge and the one where you get smashed over the head with stuff and the fan challenge. I also liked tiny, the big black guy. I think they should have gotten more attractive nudists. They got these old people. They shouldn't have taken this show off here in the states. Not a lot of English game shows are successful in America. They might make it big for awhile like Millionaire, but then they fizzle out.
