Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Comic actor Jamie Kennedy of Scream fame was host of this weekly, half-hour WB network series, a dizzying blend of sketch comedy, bizarre characterizations (most of them offered by Kennedy), zany stunts, and sometimes cruel practical jokes. Adopting a wild variety of costumes, wigs, and accents, Kennedy prowled the country conducting such experiments as "Just how much will a guy look past in order to have sex with a beautiful woman?" A hidden camera recorded the fireworks whenever the heavily disguised Kennedy made some poor "civilian's" life temporarily miserable. The series was put together by several of the hands who formerly labored on the cutting-edge comedy weeklies In Living Color and Mad TV. Also known as JKX, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment opened to astonishingly excellent ratings on January 13, 2002.
