YMMV: Balls of Steel
A show where comedians try to show how gutsy they are, by putting on acts of guts.

  • Crazy Awesome: Neg, whenever one of his Urban Sports requires him to get people's attention and/or freak them out, he's more than willing to start acting like a nut. The fact that he's not afraid to act this way in public is what makes him so awesome.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel: In the bonus round for Alex Zane's Shocking Game, the winner could win a holiday by sending a supposedly 200 volt electrical shock into their opponent using a lever allegedly connected to the studio's power supply. Complete with the studio "losing" power for a few moments, plus a somewhat realistic death. Of course as with everything else he had done, it was Played for Laughs.
  • Squick: Most things involving the Pain Men. Especially stapling your tongue, the worst thing that could ever happen to you at the workplace
