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

Distraction is an uhm..."somewhat" original show, and at times, quite witty and intelligent. The star of the show could'nt have possibly been a better selection of the host, Jimmy Carr! And what a host he is. He is heart and soul of distraction. I only wish that he'd stop repeating the same jokes he spat down during his earlier comedy shows. For example, I don't want to hear that "he arrived early" for the billionth time! Despite that, he does bring plenty of originality to the table. The show itself is quite funny and sometimes heartbreaking when you see all the merchandise destroyed. Is the shock value really worth such a budget? I really don't know but the budget must be massive!
