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

The funniest thing I ever saw were nudist distracting contestants
16 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best game shows there has ever been. Jimmy Carr hosts this amazing show. Four contestants are brought in to the studio and we get to learn silly, weird or sometimes gross things about them or their life. What is revealed to the public should embarrass them for life.

Then we get to the good part. They go through four elimination rounds where they answer trivia questions about a simple topic. The only thing is they are getting "distracted". There is always something sick or hilarious to distract them from answering the questions. These include chug-a-lugging hot sauce shots to buzz in, pressing their tongue into a turning fan, having to wrap rubber band around their heads, being zapped with electric cattle prods, or having to do their pranks with some very funny naked people.

The last round is the chance to win fabulous prizes or a brand new car. If they answer a question incorrectly, they have something done to their prize, e.g. smashed, sprayed on, burned, smashed, etc. Jimmy Carr is one of the best comedian hosts I know. Outstanding comedy entertainment!
