Michael makes Eric watch a movie so you don’t have to. Just what elevates Jackass to such heights? Maybe Impractical Jokers has the answers. In this episode of the podcast, analysis is conducted through the framework of performance theory. Both films considered feature a group of individuals engaging in pranks and stunts for the enjoyment of their audience. By investigating the power dynamics and representation within these performances, this episode engages with the concept of humor and the formation of identity in modern media. The cultural significance of these films is also examined, as they both obscure the distinction between reality and fiction and subvert traditional conceptions of masculinity. Through a thorough analysis of the films’ techniques and themes, this episode endeavors to provide a deeper understanding of the role and impact of prank-based entertainment.
