Innuendo Bingo, a BBC Radio program where celebrities spit on each other

I assume I'm late to this party (I'd never heard of this show until a few days ago). Innuendo Bingo is a BBC Radio 1 show where celebrities listen to radio and TV clips that contain lines that can be misconstrued as sexual. They have glassfuls of water in their mouths that get spewed onto each other as they bust out laughing at the innuendo.

I've had some real bust-out moments of my own (sans water or someone to gob on) watching these. I especially love it when they get so overly giddy that they spray their "opponent" even before they arrive at the innuendo.

Edited down to the essentials, this episode of The Price is Right is only 11 minutes long

Gordon took an episode of The Price is Right and edited it down to gameplay. The resulting video is an eleven-minutes long blast of pure Price is Right. Price is Right as an Olympic sport.

I trimmed a few things like... -Long form product descriptions. -Pandering to the audience for answers. -Wheel spinning animations. -Unnecessary delays.

The methodology seems overly aggressive — isn't pandering to the audience the point of the show? — but an interesting deconstruction all the same. Read the rest

"Um, Actually," there is a game show of nerd pwnage

"From Morlocks to warlocks, nerds are passionate about a lot of things, but there's one thing they love above all else and that is correcting people*." So begins each intro to the CollegeHumor game show, "Um, Actually." Nimbly hosted by Mike Trapp, the rules for Um, Actually are simple. Mike reads a statement related to various fantasy and sci-fi universes and beloved nerd media (Lord of the Rings, Blade Runner, D&D, Dune, Warhammer, Harry Potter, anime, gaming, etc). The statement conceals a mistake. One of the three contestants buzzes in with their correction. And they must preface their correction with "Um, actually..." Many of the contestants on the show are familiar faces from Geek & Sundry, The Nerdist, CollegeHumor, and shows like Silicon Valley.

When "Um, Actually" first showed up on YouTube a few years ago, as 6-12-minute shorts, I really enjoyed the 8 episodes they produced and thought it would make a fun full-length show. CollegeHumor obviously thought the same. They have launched a second season of full-length (24 minutes) episodes as part of their new Dropout.tv subscription comedy network. Here is one of the full-length episodes and several of the teasers from CollgeHumor's YouTube channel.

The show also encourages its viewers to correct any of its mistakes, and as you might imagine, there are a lot of them @UmActuallyShow (some of which are read at the end of each episode).

You can see all of the short YouTube segments for Season 2 here. Read the rest
