You can’t help but to love Steve-O.
The clown college graduate turned Jackass star has been keeping active since the release of Jackass 3D in October 2010 by embarking on multi-city (and multi-country) comedy tour, that is highly recommended by the Otaku Antics staff members who were able to see him perform at a Louisville, Kentucky stop on September 15th, 2011.
But now there’s a new way for everyone to experience the gem that is Steve-O…
Introducing Killer Karaoke, an upcoming reality game show of Steve-O-esque proportions that is sure to put the likes of American Idol, X Factor, and The Voice to shame. Contestants are forced to perform their favourite songs on national television while enduring outrageous and extreme circumstances, all the while Steve-O hosts and makes jokes at their expense.
“Killer Karaoke is a music competition show as only truTV would do it – hilarious, outrageous and wild,” said Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of truTV.
Inspired by the British game showSing If You Can, this show will incorporate hazards like water jets, flying obstacles, and creepy critters including snakes and spiders to ruin people’s good ol’ karaoke fest. Killer Karaoke is sure to hit all of the wrong notes in all of the right ways. Think William Hung meets clowns with chainsaws, while Steve-O and his audience cackle in the background.
A lawsuit filed earlier this year already has this show looking promising. Killer Karaoke contestant Susanne Ohman is suing both the producers of Killer Karaoke along with Steve-O himself, after she tripped and fell off a wet platform following her musical debut as she tried to exit the stage, her injuries resulting in the need for knee surgery. Although we feel that people should almost expect to be injured, maimed, or mentally scarred in some way if participating in any event sponsored by the Jackass crew, we do hope her the best and look forward to seeing her segment.
You can catch Killer Karaoke‘s debut on Friday, November 23rd, 2012 on truTV! For those who are cable-less, it is almost certain that a show of this caliber will be made available on YouTube and ProjectFreeTV soon after each episodes’ airing.
