Bad Robots is a hilarious hidden camera show that was first broadcast on the British television network E4 in 2014. The show was created by John Noel and Richard Osman, who are also the executive producers of the show. The concept of Bad Robots is simple yet unique. The show features various robots, such as a vending machine, a photocopier, an ATM, a parking meter, and others, that are programmed to malfunction and annoy the unsuspecting public. The robots have cameras hidden in them, which capture the reactions of the victims as they struggle to cope with the machines' antics.

The robots are operated remotely by a team of comedians, who take turns playing pranks on people. The cast includes some of the top names in British comedy, such as Michael Gambon, Matthew Holness, and Lee Kern, among others. The show also features appearances by celebrity guests, such as Richard Ayoade and Jon Richardson.

The pranks that the robots play are inventive and often quite funny. For example, the vending machine might refuse to give change or dispense drinks that are past their expiry date. The photocopier might print out bizarre and random images instead of the intended document, and the ATM might dispense fake money or withhold cash altogether. The parking meter might start beeping incessantly or refuse to accept coins.

To make things even more entertaining, the cast members often engage in witty banter with the victims, pretending to be the machines themselves. This adds an extra layer of humor to the show, as well as making the situations even more absurd.

One of the things that makes Bad Robots so entertaining is its unpredictability. The victims are usually completely caught off guard by the robots' antics, and the resulting reactions are often priceless. The show also features a wide range of different scenarios and locations, from a train station to a car park to a busy city street, ensuring that there is never a dull moment.

Another fun aspect of the show is the 'Robot of the Week' segment, where a different robot is featured each week. This adds some variety to the show and allows the cast to come up with new and creative pranks for each episode.

Overall, Bad Robots is a hilarious, cleverly conceived hidden camera show that is sure to delight audiences of all ages. With its inventive pranks, witty banter, and unpredictable scenarios, it is a must-watch for anyone who loves a good laugh.
