Now this is what Candid Camera SHOULD be like
18 November 2000 | by Grapple ManSee all my reviews

This show is just too funny for words! If you ever see it advertised where you live, watch it! The only people who won't appreciate the humour in this show are, people with no sense of humour or, dead. This takes Candid Camera and actually makes the idea funny. The reactions to the gags aren't the funny part, the actual gags are the funniest. It centres around one man making a fool of himself and making the audience laugh. That's it! The ideas involved in the gags are just amazing! Considering that practically only one man makes the whole show it's a tribute to skill and entertainment. Watch this show, now!
