Outwit. Outlast. Out-debate! Crossballs pits real experts against comedians pretending to be experts! Heated arguments, name-calling and threats ensue as the comedians push the limits, infuriating both the experts and the unsuspecting audience
So basically this is kind of like a TV version of Phil Hendrie's radio show, where the panelists are really comedians doing characters, and the guests are real guests who aren't in on the joke. Matt Besser from Upright Citizens' Brigade is one of the executive producers, and this show sounds right up his alley. You can see a video clip of him doing his patented "redneck" character on the website. This show will give him a chance to do some of the "prank" type material he did on UCB, which he excels at. Other "fake experts" will include Jerry Minor from Mr. Show, Andew Daly from MAD TV, and comic actress/singer Mary Birdsong. The host, Chris Tallman, will be familiar to "Reno 911" fans; he plays the outraged KKK leader on the show. The show premieres Tuesday at 7:30 PM. Check out the clips on the website, some of them are pretty funny.
