  1. Stumbled on this the other day. It's a Japanese 'reality' show where ten (presumably) famous Japanese comedians each pay 1million Yen to be locked together in a room for 6 hours. If they laugh they are given yellow, orange then red cards and eliminated. They are allowed to bring props and costumes. The last man standing gets the 10million prize. A million Yen is about $10k US I think. What makes this fascinating is how weird Japanese comedy is. It mostly seems to involve either hitting each other or getting naked. Or both. There are 2 'seasons' up. Both split the six hours across 4 or 5 episodes. The second season gets a lot more extreme with the nudity and violence. The climax of the second season is really vicious. If you're the sort of person who holds their breath when watching people swim underwater in movies then this has a similar effect if you try not to laugh. I liked that these celebs were actually trying to win some money instead of the usual charity donation. Some of them had to scrape the entrance fee together or even borrow from friends or a bank. They *really* want to win the money and they can't afford to lose the entrance free.
