Johnny Galecki, well known as the beloved scientist Leonard Hofstadter from The Big Bang Theory, hosts a fun-filled programme that uses cutting-edge science to perform outrageous pranks, stunts and practical jokes!

Together with fellow pranksters, Tamara Robertson and Jason Latimer, they orchestrate a team of clever and inventive scientists who draw on their knowledge of chemistry, physics and engineering to perform never-before-seen pranks that introduce viewers to remarkable and unusual scientific discoveries.

From showcasing energetic chemical reactions under the guise of a cooking show, to ‘controlling’ objects with the power of the mind, these pranks are full of real science as well as a healthy dose of chaos!

Catch Sci-jinks from Wednesday, 29 August at 18:30 on Discovery Family (DStv channel 136) to see what amazing tricks the team performs.
