The Rubberbandits made their US debut last night with The Almost Impossible Game Show.
For those of us from the UK and Ireland, the Rubberbandits are a well known comedy duo. The pair made their US debut last night on MTV with The Almost Impossible Game Show.
The adventure game show was first aired on ITV2 in 2015, and following its success it was picked up by MTV this year.
Although the duo formed back in the early 2000s, it wasn’t until they began performing on the Irish comedy series Republic of Telly that they shot to fame. Their music video for “Horse Outside,” and multiple other songs, was what first got everybody talking, but their continued blunt social commentary and political awareness surprised most people and gained them respect.
In this new game show, Blindboy Boatclub and Mr Chrome provide commentary while contestants tackle some bizarre challenges. What differentiates it from other game shows that have been aired on MTV is the Rubberbandits’ commentary.
It will be interesting to see how the US market takes to their unique comedy style. Head over to The Almost Impossible Game Show website to see some previews for what’s in store.
