Playing sadistic pranks on unsuspecting folks has been the source of some great comedy over the years from Candid Camera to The Jerky Boys and Jackass, there's something hilarious about seeing everyday people react to some horrific shit. While one might assume that in the day and age of trigger warnings and safe spaces, this type of humor would be too risky to endeavor, allow Eric Andre, Lil Rel Howery, and Tiffany Haddish to prove otherwise.
Bad Trip has a Bad Grandpa-esque loose road trip narrative that functions only to allow our protagonists to prank folks before moving on to the next zip code and doing it all over again. Andre and Howery play best friends who "borrow" Haddish's car while she is doing a stint in prison to take a cross country road trip. She escapes prison, however, and decides to track down the car thieves and murder them, probably. Who knows why she's in prison?
It's not the most original idea, but these are three of the funniest people working right now, so I'm sure they've got some good stuff up their sleeves. We'll find out for sure when Bad Trip opens in North America on October 25.
