VIOLENT J: "Yes."

Insane Clown Posse Theater was a 2013 weekly TV series airing on Fuse hosted by, of course, the Insane Clown Posse, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. It took place in a movie theater and they watched music and viral videos, cracked jokes and talked with celebrities. The commentary was in the same Mystery Science Theater 3000 meets Beavis And Butt-Head vein as on their Juggalo Championship Wrestling DVDs, though with a touch of Pop Up Video, as facts came up on the screen when they got something wrong.

"Sugar Slam, if you will and even if you won't, roll the tropes":

  • Alliterative Name: Sugar Slam
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: While watching Michael Jackson's "Black or White" video.
    VIOLENT J: "Would I let my kids hang out with Michael Jackson? No. (Beat) Because I'D want to hang out with Michael Jackson!"

  • Butt-Monkey: Greg Valentine is this for J and Shaggy's jokes, though they do put him over as a Badass Grandpa.
  • Catchphrase/Once per Episode: Sugar Slam announces that it's time for the "Venereal (viral) Video." Kevin Gill asks "Why is it a 'Veneral Video'?" J says, "You don't know? Because it WON'T GO AWAY!"
  • Cluster Bleep-Bomb: Every single episode.
  • Fat Comic Relief : Violent J often pokes fun at his own weight, but in one episode they have fun with the idea that Ce-Lo Green is probably sweating buckets due to his weight and overdressing in a three piece suit, framing it as the reason all the cuts were incredibly short.
  • Idiosyncratic Wipes: The image of the title character from their The Mighty Death Pop album.
  • Lampshade Hanging: When North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was on the screen, they didn't recognize him (mixing up North and South Korea).
    VIOLENT J: "If we were educated, we'd probably know who he is."

  • Movie-Theater Episode: All of them.
  • MST: Well, yes. Wicked clown style, of course.
  • Only Sane Woman: Sugar Slam is pretty much the voice of reason here.
  • Sadistic Choice: From one promo:
    VIOLENT J: Would you rather we had this show (clips of ICP screaming) or dated your mom?
    SHAGGY 2 DOPE: These are your only choices.
  • The Voiceless: Greg Valentine never spoke during the show's run.
