Premieres Tuesday, December 29 at 10 PM ET/PT on truTV
Almost Genius is a self-contained, half-hour comedy series that celebrates the people, places and things that try so hard to succeed but come up just a bit short. Hosted by April Richardson and Chris Fairbanks, the show features comedians and performers digitally inserted into viral videos to comment on and congratulate people for their bravery and ingenuity in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. But Almost Genius doesn't mock, because as everyone knows, almost is awesome…and genius.
Grasping for Greatness: In tonight’s series premiere, check out people pole dancing in India, and watch a guy totally confuse his girl in bed. Plus, you have to see the amazing way this one guy puts on his pants! And stick around to see which clip Chris and April save as the best for last!
