Killer karaoke

It's a really great show I couldn't stop laughing this is what the shows about thay have to sing there song and do things that scare then Like this lady had to where shock things and serve Steve food With out stop singing but my favourite was the Snakes the man said no I hate snakes !!! But he had to Walk through the pretend desert what it is the man had balloons all over him where glasses he wasn't drunk it's just glasses so when he looks in them its like he's drunk because he can't see clearly and he had to walk through and there was lots of thorns and cactus and other things I would say it should be age 14 because there's stuff like rotten fish guts it know it sounds gross but thay have it because thay had closed doors than the man opens it and thay have to walk though it

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

While its roots are British, Killer Karaoke pays homage to the Japanese game show tradition by offering translations of titles and slogans written and spoken in Japanese throughout each episode. But the real resemblance comes in the form of the contestants willingly subjecting themselves to ridiculous (and even gross) stunts while singing their hearts out. Also adding to the fray are the replays of the people screaming out in fear while trying to sing.

Much of the show's fun comes from the reactions of the contestants. However, the stunts get a little repetitive from week-to-week, which makes each round a little anti-climatic. But folks who find these sort of silly scenarios and outrageous competitions entertaining will probably find themselves laughing.
