About Crank Yankers
Yankerville, a twisted town inhabited solely by puppets, is the setting for re-creations of actual crank phone calls. Comics and celebrities -- a list that includes people such as rapper Eminem and comics Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes and Drew Carey -- make the calls. Among the regular pranksters are show creators Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. Characters featured on the show on a regular basis include Special Ed, Elmer and Bobby Fletcher. The show originated on Comedy Central but new episodes aired for a time on MTV2.
