No civilian is safe! Watch comedians mess with the public on ‘jerks with cameras’ [trailer]

If you thought a puddle or wad of gum was the worst thing you could encounter while on a leisurely stroll, think again. In a new effort to disrupt the days of the general public everywhere, MTV has called on a handful of comedians with pranking expertise to take their acts to the streets, and when “Jerks with Cameras” premieres on Thursday, January 16 at 10:30e/7:30p, trips to the grocery store, jaunts to restaurants and walks along the boardwalk will all prove to be dangerous ordeals.

In the trailer below, comedians like Dante Spencer and Danielle Hawkins target unsuspecting strangers to get a rise out of them, and then report back to host Tone Bell in front of a live audience to offer up the best reactions they managed to catch on camera. The comedians will accuse random men of being their baby’s father, deal joggers soggy high-fives and straight-up steal their food to mess with ‘em. Aspiring to be a jerk might not make mom or dad proud, but at MTV, it might just make you royalty!

Check out the clip, and be sure to tune in to the “Jerks with Cameras” premiere Thursday night!
