Synopsis by Mark Deming
British comedian Nick Frost (best known to American audiences for his role as Ed in the international hit Shaun of the Dead) mixes high-powered laughter with hair-raising stunts in this collection of material from his U.K. television series. Danger! 50,000 Volts! features Frost and his crew imagining a variety of potentially dangerous situations -- anything from being attacked by a bear to nuclear combat -- and then demonstrating what to do should they happen to you. However, Frost often reveals himself as not the world's greatest survival guide, and his attempts to work his way out of perilous circumstances are both exciting and hilarious.
