Smosh Pit is an offshoot of Smosh. It's like their second channel, but... different? An outgrowth of the Smosh Squad, Ian, along with Shayne Topp, Damien Haas, Olivia Sui, Courtney Miller, Noah Grossman and Keith Leak act out themed theatre, try to make each other laugh, eat strange items, and everything else.

Shows include:

  • Try Not To Laugh: Where the team tries to make each other laugh
  • Eat It Or Yeet It!: Something gets served, and everyone has to decide whether they'll eat it or pass, and if they do eat it, try not to barf. Who will get The Big Bite?
  • Advertisement:
  • What're Those?!: Players must figure out what the hell an item is, and decide the price in a segment definitely not based on The Price Is Right
  • Smosh Theatre: The crew act out scenes based on a common theme
  • Spelling Bee-kini Wax: Players must spell words, but if you spell the word wrong, you don't lose the competition, you lose hair down there!
  • Beopardy!: A quiz show definitely not based on Jeopardy!
  • Stan vs The Internet: Fans of a particular show or sport compete against the Internet (in the form of someone Googling stuff on a laptop)


Smosh Pit includes examples of:

  • And Now For Something Completely Different: "Eat it or Yeet it!" normally has a bell participants ring if they feel like trying an item, and the last one standing gets The Big Bite. Some episodes have a wheel that lands on a colour corresponding to each player's bib, with no one out and no one safe. The Big Bite is still either the best or the worst dish of the episode. Sometimes the wheel includes a Garrett Slice (to date, it has never landed on the Garrett Slice).
  • The Artifact: The Big Bite in episodes with the wheel instead of a bell, where no one is safe and no one is out (normally, anyone who rings the bell before is out for the rest of the round). It's still either the best or worst item, but now anyone can get it even if they've eaten already.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: Garrett in "Eat it or Yeet it." He deliberately comes up with weird combinations, which are sometimes good, usually terrible.
  • Advertisement:
  • Eat That: Players in "Eat it or Yeet it" are presented an item and must decide if they'll try it based on looks in the five second countdown.
  • Epic Fail:
    • In the first episode of Spelling Bee-kini Wax, Shane as Sentencer (person who uses the word in a sentence) says "In seventh grade, I didn't have any, and that's why I'm still a virgin!" for the word "Rhythm."
      Damien: The sentence didn't have the word rhythm in it!
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin:
    • Try Not to Laugh, where everyone tries not to laugh.
    • "Burger but Cold": A hamburger, but cold.
      Courtney: Ingredients are as follows! Burger! Freezer!
  • I Ate WHAT?!: The concept of Eat It or Yeet It! Players ring the bell if they think something is worth eating, try not to throw up and find out afterwards what they ate. Whoever avoids eating the whole game gets The Big Bite, which is either the best or the worst item, depending on how cruel Garrett is feeling.
  • Lightswitch Surprise: In Try Not to Laugh #67, for Courtney's turn in the seat, Shane turns off the lights and stands next to her as Courtney FREAKING Miller when the lights turn on, then turns the lights off again and is gone when they turn on again. Jackie does it to Shane, saying "I have been with a white man before."
  • Loony Fan: One Smosh Theatre had everyone draw lines from a hat that were creepy messages from fans.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: Shayne's recurring character in Try Not to Laugh (referred to as "Dumpster Wizard" in an interview, but was also named Skimpy Jiggles, Jr., in a Smosh Games play of Red Dead Redemption II), who says "So, weary traveler. Looking to enter..." This varies from "The Cave of Terror," Dave & Buster's, Abercrombie & Fitch, Starbucks, Metallica tribute concert ("Looking to Enter Sandman, eh?").
  • No-Sell:
    • Ian getting waxed in "Spelling Bee-kini Wax''. He doesn't notice it.
      Rachel the waxer: Dude, what are you into?
    • Shane and malic acid (the "sour" part of sour candy). He's immune to it.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Producers Matt Raub and Sarah Whittle.
  • Spelling Bee: Spelling Bee-kini Wax, where wrong words are punished by a bikini wax.
  • Spiritual Successor: "Eat it or Yeet it!" serves as this for "Put it in My Mouth". Noah even appears as a regular.
  • Spit Take: "Try Not to Laugh" has one person hold water in their mouth to make it harder to not laugh and obvious if they do laugh. Temporarily changed to harmonicas during the COVID-19 Pandemic, but eventually reverted back to water.
  • Tastes Better Than It Looks: Some of the items in "Eat it or Yeet it!" The Big Bite will sometimes be the best item.
  • Very Special Episode: Try Not to Laugh #69 is a farewell episode to/roast of Sarah Whittle, who was moving back North Dakota.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: If someone feels nauseous in Eat It or Yeet It!, they're given a bucket to throw up, hence the "yeet it" part.
  • Word Salad Title: A segment in What're Those? on guessing the price (which is definitely not a ripoff of The Price Is Right), How Much In The World Money Is It Does It Cost? Now available as a T-shirt!
    Damien: Make your friends think they're having a stroke when they're actually not!


How well does it match the trope?
