Using cutting-edge science as the foundation for outrageous stunts and practical jokes, SCIJINKS, the all-new science prank show hosted by Johnny Galecki, consists of a team of inventive scientists who use science to feed people’s minds, and to mess with their heads.
Galecki, along with science “prankologists” Tamara Robertson and Jason Latimer, test out science on unsuspecting marks, drawing from chemistry, physics, technology, engineering and more, with never-before-seen pranks that will introduce audiences to remarkable and unusual scientific discoveries. From showcasing classic chemical reactions under the guise of a cooking class, to controlling the movement of objects with their brains using electroencephalography, the pranks not only contain mind-blowing science, but a heaping dose of chaos too.
With a professional acting career that spans more than 25 years, Johnny Galecki is best known for his roles on two hugely popular television series, Roseanne and The Big Bang Theory. He currently stars on the CBS sitcom, which is airing Season 11. As socially awkward physicist Leonard Hofstadter, Galecki has garnered an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination, along with those from the Critic’s Choice Awards, People’s Choice Awards and four consecutive ensemble nominations by the Screen Actors Guild Awards, among others. Along with numerous television movies, his credits include guest roles on My Name is Earl and Entourage, as well as lending his voice to such animated series as American Dad! and Family Guy.
