Joking Off - Show Summary

Joking Off is a comedic television program airing on MTV2. The first episode premiered on MTV2 on April 1, 2015. Hosted by actor and stand-up comedian DeRay Davis, this 30-minute program is a hilarious blend of social media and improv comedy. The fast paced program is in game show format, highlighting the most ridiculous tweets, facebook comments, Instagram pictures, videos, and blog posts from a range of social media outlets. The contestants are divided into three teams, who fight for being the last comedian standing after teams are voted off, or “joked off.” One of the games featured on the show is “Ok Stupid,” whereby the comedians invent fake OkCupid style dating profiles and make up their own dating interests on Joking Off’s own parody dating site. Another game is “Textify,” where the contestants have awkward text conversations and create improv scenes based on them. In addition, for the game “If They Could Talk,” the comics use funny animal videos and make up hilarious dialogue that the animals might be saying if they could talk. In the final contest, which is a prank call contest called “Call You Out,” the comedians compete head to head to choose the final victor of the episode.

Some of the many comedians regularly featured on the show include Awkwafina, Desus & Mero, Matt Pavich, Kristen Acimovich, James Davis, Liza Treyger, Dave Ebert, Mike Camerlengo, Matteo Lane and James Manziello. In addition there are many guest appearances by such names as Damien Lemon, Charlamagne, Lil Duval, Tanisha Long, Monroe Martin, Jon Gabrus, Mike Winfield, Mac Lethal, Donnell Rawlings, Chris Distefano, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Jordan Carlos, Shalyah Evans, and Stephen Guarin.
