What's the story?

TOTALLY CLUELESS is a hidden camera game show that features a team of improv actors putting real people into unreal situations with a cash prize. The \"Getta Clue Crew,\" which includes comedians like James Manzello, Giulio Gallarotti, Alison Bennett, and actors and performers like Kristen Acimovic, Patrice M. Harris, and Nico Elicerio, stages a series of edgy pranks that feature four rounds of dilemmas. If the unsuspecting contestants, who start out with $500, figure out that they're being pranked, they get to keep the cash value of the round they find themselves in. But if they're totally clueless, they end up struggling through each awkward situation while unknowingly losing $100 per round.

Is it any good?

Totally Clueless features lots of hilarious moments as the performers use their improv skills and comedic timing to create surreal situations designed to confuse even the most quick-witted of people. Watching the contestants respond to the craziness is pretty funny, too.

Some pranks have edgy moments, like when a pretend married couple say they are about to "consummate" their marriage, but all of them are designed to elicit laughs from TV audiences, as well as the contestants once the prank is over. Meanwhile, while they are faced with some ridiculous situations, the contestants are not being made fun of. In the end, you may find yourself surprised at how much you laugh out loud at what you see here.
