The premiere to FOX’s new series World’s Funniest Fails is only two days away, and we couldn’t be more excited for it here at CS4U!
Hosted by actor and former NFL player Terry Crews, World’s Funniest Fails is an irreverent clip show that features a panel of celebrities and comedians each week who analyze “epic fail” videos which have exploded across the internet, with the goal of awarding one with the ultimate “Fail of the Week.”
Terry Crews sat down with press recently to give viewers a little taste of what they can from the new FOX series. In the interview, Terry talks about how he landed the role of host for World’s Funniest Fails, special celebrity panelists that will be featured throughout the season, and if he will be getting physical with the audience on WFF. Check out the highlights below!
On how he got the role: “I got this call from my agent and they’re like, man, there’s this show that’s unbelievable. It’s called World’s Funniest Fails, and what they basically do is they watch clips on YouTube of all this failure stuff and I’m like holy cow. My wife and kids we sit there and watch this stuff all day. You get caught in a rabbit hole. Once you play one video, you just keep going. There are times that I’ve missed appointments because I can’t stop because you go from one to the other, and my family, we crack up.”
If he will get physical on the stage: “Yes, listen, I’m all over the stage. The one thing about me is I’m an official honey baked ham. When a camera is on, I have no problem with it. I’m not a comedian per se. I never did stand-ups, but I really, really like just being funny and looking at funny things and just enjoying it just like anyone else and I’m all over the stage. They actually had to tell me, they were like Terry look, forget trying to find a camera. We’re going to find you because you’re just all over the place.”
On the celebrity panelists that will be featured on World’s Funniest Fails: “You know it’s funny because we got Russell Peters — I don’t have a big list of who are the comedians on the show at the moment, but I promise you they were the funniest, funniest guys ever and we had a ball. I promise you you will not be disappointed.”
Don’t miss the “Dance Like No Paramedics Are Watching” series premiere episode of World’s Funniest Fails airing Friday, Jan. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
