Prank Academy is a reality web series from YouTube that premiered in 2016. The show stars Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith, who are the creators and faces of the popular YouTube channel Prank vs. Prank, and Timothy DeLaGhetto, a comedian, rapper, and YouTuber. The show is produced by Brian Robbins and his team at AwesomenessTV.

The premise of the show revolves around pranking unsuspecting people with elaborate and hilarious stunts, all while teaching the art of pranking to a select group of students. Each episode features a new lesson, with the students being taught by the master pranksters themselves. The students then put their new skills to the test by creating their own pranks, with the help of the show's producers.

The show is shot in Los Angeles, California, and the stunts take place in various public locations, such as malls, parks, and even on the streets. The show's producers work closely with the local authorities to ensure that the pranks do not violate any laws or cause harm to anyone involved. The show is also filmed with hidden cameras, adding to the authenticity of the pranks.

Jesse and Jeana, who are also a couple in real life, bring their own unique style of pranking to the show. Their pranks are usually more personal and involve their friends, family, and even each other. Timothy DeLaGhetto, on the other hand, brings his comedic timing and music talent to the mix, creating pranks that are both funny and entertaining.

The show's production value is top-notch, with each episode featuring high-quality cinematography, sound, and special effects. The pranks are also well thought-out and executed, with some of them even involving multiple cameras and intricate setups.

Aside from the pranks themselves, the show also offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the stunts are planned and executed. The students are shown the entire process, from coming up with the initial idea to scouting locations to planning the logistics. This not only adds to the entertainment value of the show but also offers valuable insights into the world of pranking.

Prank Academy also features a number of guest stars, including other popular YouTubers and celebrities. These guest stars participate in the pranks, either as the unsuspecting victims or as part of the prank itself. This not only adds to the hilarity of the stunts but also helps to introduce the show to a wider audience.

Overall, Prank Academy is a fun and entertaining show that offers a fresh take on the world of pranking. It combines the skills and expertise of three seasoned pranksters with a group of eager and talented students, resulting in pranks that are both creative and hilarious. Whether you're a fan of traditional pranks or are just looking for some good laughs, Prank Academy is definitely worth a watch.
