Can’t sleep? No problem, because COMEDY CENTRAL is just getting started! Chug some coffee and get ready for some hilarity on Sunday night, July 12 with the premiere of “Fonejacker” at 2:00 a.m. and the return of “Kenny vs. Spenny” at 2:30 a.m.
“Fonejacker,” a BAFTA(R) award-winning British prank show never before seen in the United States, features undercover video footage, Monty Python-esque animations and visual on-screen wordplay which turns hilarious, embarrassing prank calls into a multimedia experience. The show stars Kayvan Novak, the brains and voice behind the various characters featured. In the premiere episode, Terry Tibbs, a car salesman who makes dodgy dealing an art form, attempts to buy a car that is for sale by its owner, a mouse calls a pet shop to learn how to kill the cat that ate his family and an unscrupulous Ugandan tries to get various people to give up their bank account information. “Fonejacker” is produced by Hat Trick Productions for E4 in the UK.
The night continues with the second season premiere of “Kenny vs. Spenny,” the hilarious reality/comedy series that pits childhood friends against each other in outrageous competitions. In the premiere episode, “Who Can Bone More Women?,” best friends and co-creators Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice compete to see who can go the furthest with the most women. The winner achieves short-term glory and bragging rights, while the loser is forced to perform a humiliating stunt of the winner’s choosing. Future challenges include “Who Can Keep A Dump In Their Pants The Longest?,” “First Guy To Touch The Ground Loses,” “Who Can Piss Off More People?” and “Who Can Be A Better Jew?”. Entertainment Weekly said of the show’s first season that “‘Kenny vs. Spenny’ are quite possibly the end of civilization as we know it – but not lacking in laughs.”
“Kenny vs. Spenny” is produced by independent studio E1 Entertainment and Breakthrough Films & Television in association with Showcase in Canada. Hotz and Rice executive produce with John Morayniss, Noreen Halpern, Peter Williamson, Ira Levy and Abby Finer.
