Watch Crank Yankers

Crank yankers is a television show in which actual prank calls are made to unsuspecting victims and then broadcast so that the audience can witness the latest responses to the calls on the television show. The person making the crank call is represented by a puppet that is voiced by a celebrity like Wanda Sykes or Jimmy Kimmel who all have various personas from a mother of 13 children to a basketball star the voices are also sometimes voiced by guest celebrities that can range from Britney Spears to Jessica Simpson

The puppets are used as a visual comedy aid so that the viewer can watch the puppets reaction to the questions that the victim is answering and also the types of puppets used for each call. Help to determine the type of questions and responses in jokes. A given victim is going to experience all of these crank calls are situational. Meaning that the actor is pretending to be someone taking a survey or placing a mistaken call and then the victim on the other end of the phone is coaxed along by the actor's ability to play with words and innuendos to obtain the funniest response possible each episode of this television show consists out several calls made by each puppet of the show is in a half-hour format. The goal seems to be to see how far each actor can get their victim to go with the questions and how long they can keep them on the phone and play out each scenario.

It should however be noted that the calls are not actually dialed in a live format but are recorded and played back as I'm sure the actors get a basic premise from the writers and of them a playoff the responses of the victim, which is much easier to do with a recorded call. It should also be noted that this show is not intended for younger viewers, and it does have foul language and situational humor of a sexual nature. So it is suggested that viewer discretion should be exercised before viewing this program.
