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!
