Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla are reviving Crank Yankers on Comedy Central
Kimmel's brother, Jonathan Kimmel, will serve as showrunner on the revival of the show featuring crank-calling puppets that originally ran from 2002 to 2007 on Comedy Central and later MTV2. “Crank Yankers has always been my favorite show to make," Jimmy Kimmel said in a statement. "Nothing is more fun or makes me laugh harder than a great crank call and I am thrilled that Comedy Central asked us to do it again. At this time, I would like to ask all Americans to disable their caller ID. Thank you.”
