This mockumentary about a couple of surfer activists on a mission to "spread stoke" is confrontational, but not aggressive; its silliness manages to shed light on the occasional important issue. Based on the popular podcast of a similar name, Chad & JT Go Deep is the kind of farce only accomplished when the unsuspecting public is prayed upon by comedians who refuse to break character. It's part Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, part Punk'd. And it works, but only for adult audiences due to lots of nudity and sex-related pranks.

As in the podcast, it's the pair's outrageous town hall appearances that bring the most laughs to the show. The occasional celebrity cameo also adds to the appeal but the funniest bits come when the jokes go national and the guys appear in character on the likes of Fox News and The Howard Stern Show. The biggest win here is that the laughs come without the cast trying to intentionally hurt each other as they do in similar shows like Jackass. Older teens and young adults will find the shenanigans hilarious but adults need to be aware of the explicit content.
