With random silliness, and featuring celebrity cameos during the bets, ''Banzai'' ran for four series from 2001 to 2004. In the United States, it had a brief run on {{FOX}} in 2003 (these were Americanized and removed references to British culture and celebrities) that was canceled due to protest from Asian American groups after six episodes, and was then picked up by ComedyCentral, who ran the rest of the series with no controversy.

''Banzai'' was a ChannelFour program spoofing Japanese gameshows with its unorthodox methods of entertainment, from how long it takes to masturbate a turkey to how many balloons are needed to make a chicken fly. It spoofed Japanese culture in general with its three main presenters:

* AliensMadeThemDoIt / MateOrDie: One bet consisted in asking PeterDavison if he had to have anal sex with one of the other living actors who played the Doctor on ''Series/DoctorWho'' in order to save the Earth from the Daleks, which one would he pick. (His answer was Sylvester [=McCoy=] much to the bewilderment of the announcer).
