At the end of 2010, three members of the supporting cast abandoned the show for good and started working for one of the main radio stations in Italy, ''Radio Deejay'' (easily the best-known in Italy, which is why long-time fans of the show saw this as the ultimate selling-out, if not a full-fledged FaceHeelTurn). This ChannelHop made the show's fandom fear the worst... [[BigDamnHeroes until]] it was announced that famous comedian [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcello_Macchia Marcello Macchia,]] [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname better known by his "Maccio Capatonda" moniker]], would join the show's crew alongside his fellows. Considering Macchia's own reputation in Italy as one of the funniest - if not MindScrew-y - comedians in the country, his recruitment in the show has been perceived as, say, the equivalent of ''Creator/MontyPython'' joining ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' if some of the latter's hosts happened to drop the show for some reason. In other words, as you might have guessed, the fandom rejoiced. To this day, the show's doing fine (and even got a LiveActionAdaptation shown on ''ComedyCentral'') and it's not going to stop anytime soon... hopefully.

* ''ChuckNorrisFacts'' - ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, a DramaticReading of the Facts, adapted as a radio sketch. It worked until the Facts [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny stopped being the cutting edge among fads]], and then the focus of the MemeticBadass treatment became Bear Grylls of ''ManVsWild'' fame., and later ''Series/MacGyver''.

** ''Misunderstanding'' - A brief series based on ManipulativeEditing. At first it seems like they're doing a prank call with tons of obscenities, then it's revealed that the bleeped out words were totally safe ones.

* CrazyAwesome: the show in a nutshell. Capatonda's ''"Unreal Radio"'' sketches deserve special mention though.
--> ''"The bank robbers are keeping hostage the staff of the ''sperm'' bank, and soon after they started releasing a highly flammable gas inside it, said gas quickly spreads in the whole building. Unfortunately, after his [[ADateWithRosiePalms copious donation]], our subject [[OhCrap is about to]] light a [[SmokingHotSex post-coital cigarette]]. ''(an audible explosion is heard)'' The entire sperm bank blows up, [[{{Squick}} and all of its content]] [[RefugeInAudacity starts raining on the city as a whole."]]''



* FountainOfMemes: the whole show, among its fandom, whether it may have come from a RunningGag, an OverlyLongGag, an OverusedRunningGag or just a ForcedMeme. The fandom gleefully embraces the catchy lines, and therefore MemeticMutation is always running rampant.



* HoYay: Mazzoli himself often gleefully alludes to his (alleged) homosexuality, despite being HappilyMarried with a woman. Of course, he's just joking. Let's just say that in this show nobody ever takes each other seriously - nor is the show itself one to be taken seriously.



* TalkingToHimself: aside from each cast member covering various roles in sketches, this trope is also the goal behind the show's prank calls. It goes like this - first, the victim of the prank is fooled into thinking there's a real TV show host calling him or her (thanks to archived voice clips of said host); then, the victim is asked various, [[TheWalrusWasPaul deliberately]] MindScrew-y questions in order to trigger various reactions; then, after the victim's first RageQuit, this is repeated until the aforementioned reactions cover a wide array of words; finally, one last prank call is made, only this time the voice clips aren't those of the host, but ''those of the victim him/herself.'' That's every bit as funny as it sounds.

It all started back in 1999, when DJ Marco Mazzoli was working with his colleague, Gilberto "Gibba" Penza, at UsefulNotes/NewYork for the 105 N.Y. radio show, thus giving birth to what would later become one of the most popular radio shows in Italy ''ever''. One year later, [[ExecutiveMeddling the show was canceled]] due to the excessive vulgarity, only to be {{uncanceled}} shortly after. During the following years, a lot of [=DJs=] were introduced, but not much of the supporting cast really seemed to stick aside from Mazzoli, Gibba and the [[TheScrappy notoriously controversial/divisive parody singer]] Leone Di Lernia. Then, after causing two more controversies - namely, a joke about torturing animals and an [[EngineeredPublicConfession accidentally aired]] [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud blasphemy]] - the show got canceled twice again for these respective reasons, but each time it got uncanceled and resumed broadcasting (once from a studio located in {{Miami}}, for those curious).

* ShoutOut: the cast member behind some speeches - including the disclaimer that also serves as this page's quote - is nicknamed Petosauro. In English, that translates into "Fart-saurus", that may or may not be a reference to [[TheSimpsons "Fart-zilla"]].
** The audio for the montage sequences of ''Gay Team'' (for when they build their cock tank, or whatever) features many random clips, including [[{{Film/Spiderman}} Spiderman shooting his web]], [[Film/FullMetalJacket Sergeant Hartman's introduction]] and [[{{Film/Spaceballs}} The Major Asshole scene]].

** ''"Alan In Love"'' is perhaps the show's best-known prank call. It began when DJ Alan made a prank call to an old lady, claiming to have [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin fallen in love with her]] and... well, talking dirty to her. The twist is, said lady not only went "SureWhyNot", she actually ''fell in love with him for real''. DJ Alan has since made things up (getting arrested, joining the army, you name it), and by May 2013 the sketch holds the title of "Longest Prank Call Ever". The hag not only believed every single thing he said [[ObfuscatingStupidity (or so it seems)]], she even ''took part in'' Alan's [[ADateWithRosiePalms fappings.]] [[{{Squick}} You've read that right.]] The two actually met in person twice, in events organized for her by the [=DJ=]s.
