Plot Synopsis

Hosted by April Richardson and Chris Fairbanks, ALMOST GENIUS is a half-hour clip show that features a cast of comedians and performers digitally inserted into viral videos to comment on them, but, instead of just mocking people, the talking heads congratulate the subjects for their bravery and ingenuity in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Plus, stick around the for end of each episode, because April and Chris always save the best for last. Videos include: people pole dancing in India; a guy totally confusing his girl in bed; an amazing way this one guy puts on his pants; a band of marauding monkeys wreak havoc on a freshly baked batch of bread; the awesome chi of the office karate master; a real-life lightsaber academy; the worst dating profiles ever; a dance-off that's so bad, it's good; a mystical owl whisper; a camp that prepares you for the Zombie Apocalypse; a skateboarding taco; and many more cray cray clips.
ALMOST GENIUS returned with new episodes on Monday, May 16, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on truTV. In the mid-season premiere, "Digging Deep," Chris and April know cream rises to the top, but they're interested in the layer just below. From a butt-naked rock climber, to the never ending twerk, they're digging deep to find the best no-getters out there!
