MABE IN AMERICA (episode 4) - PREMIERE!
Known for plotting revenge on telemarketers with his comical phone antics, comedian Tom Mabe (“Prank It Up” and “Revenge on the Telemarketers”) comes to CMT with an all-new hidden camera prank show that takes on everyday people in everyday life in MABE IN AMERICA. This light-hearted six-episode series features Mabe and his crew wreaking havoc on unsuspecting passerby with pranks that prey on common pet peeves such as annoyingly loud cell-phone talkers and incompetent doctors.
