Behind the scenes

The performers are given a basic outline of a premise by the writers, and call telephone numbers of a list of selected targets (known as "marks"). Using the basic premises, the performers improvise most of their lines, playing off of the responses of their marks, with the intention to keep them on the phone as long as possible.


With the exception of a few outside sources (including previous material from Jim Florentine and the Touch-Tone Terrorists), all the calls are made from Nevada. The Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 makes it illegal in most states to record telephone calls without both parties' consent. Due to a loophole in the law in Nevada, only one of the parties has to give consent (i.e., the caller), so prank calls can be recorded without the consent of the prank victims. The marks are later contacted to seek permission to air the calls on television [2]. Jim Florentine is an American comedian best known for his work as the character Special Ed on the television show Crank Yankers. ... The Touch-Tone Terrorists is the name of a group of fictional characters used in a series of prank phone calls which are recorded and compiled on a series of comedy CDs. ... This article does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... The Omnibus Crime Control Act of 1968 gave the rules for obtaining wiretap orders in the United States. ... The term loophole could refer to a number of things: See Embrasure; a slit in a castle wall Loophole (1954 movie) Loophole (1981 movie) for other meaning see Loophole at Wikionary Cash Loopholes ...


The puppets are then constructed based on the various marks' voices, and, along with a series of stock characters (such as "Niles Standish", "Bobby Fletcher", and "Special Ed") based on the performers' character voices, the calls are re-enacted for the skits.


Regular characters

  • Gladys Murphy (Wanda Sykes) — A boisterous African American woman who makes embarrassing announcements, generally of a scatological or sexual nature. Her many children are very mischievous, once going so far as to glue her behind to the toilet.
  • Niles Standish (Tony Barbieri) — A British Earl, he is a rich and eccentric middle-aged pervert with homosexual tendencies.

  • Hadassah Guberman (Sarah Silverman) — A Jewish female college student who works various part-time jobs, including conducting surveys for O magazine. She frequently asks intrusive questions and makes veiled passive-aggressive insults. Her sexuality, as well as her sanity, seem questionable at times. [10]
  • Terrence Catheter (Jimmy Kimmel) — An effeminate, red-headed man who acts as spokesperson for various celebrities, such as Tom Cruise, Bill Cosby, Mr. T, and the Olsen twins.

  • Kevin (Kevin Kimmel) - Jimmy Kimmel's son made occasional appearances from 2003, including as Elmer Higgins' grandson.
  • Foreign Guy (Dane Cook) - A nameless imigrant who calls various places looking for assistance or to purchase something.
