Trust Us With Your Life Fails At Bringing in Actual Celebrities

Last night Trust Us With Your Life gave us another night of double episodes. I don’t understand why because this is a show I can tolerate for 30 minutes, but not for an hour. The first episode’s “celebrity” who trusted the improvisers with his life was Mark Cuban. A few months ago, I would have no idea who that was, but since I’m a die-hard Kardashian fan, I know that he owns the Dallas Mavericks, which was Lamar Odom‘s team for a few months this past year until he got sent to the Clippers. Look at me knowing sports!

Did you guys know Mark Cuban used to be a bouncer and had a gun pulled on him? Or that he became a millionaire at the age of 29? Did you care? Me neither. I would be more into this show if they brought on actual celebs with a juicy past for the improvisers to reenact. Like Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. I would love to see Wayne Brady‘s take on the umbrella car smash.

In the second episode, the celebrity was Ricky Gervais (who was on the British version of The Office, but I know him best from pissing off tons of celebs at The Golden Globes). We learn that Ricky’s full name is Ricky Dene Gervais, and Dene is spelled weird because his dad was drunk.

Apparently there are only eight episodes of this show. I feel like it could probably retain more viewers if it only gave us one episode a week (and it would have a longer run, instead of four weeks, it would be on for eight weeks). I wanted to turn it off halfway through the second episode because it all starts seeming the same. Same jokes, same stories from the “celebrities.” I just feel like the show is very bland right now and needs some spicing up or after the show’s four week run, we will never see it again.

    He wasn’t just ‘on the British version of The Office’, he was the creator of the show altogether, meaning that the British show wasn’t just another ‘version’ but the original altogether.

      “did you guys slip me crack?”, “please tell me i’m dreaming”, Ricky would be the one to openly hate the show while on the show. Loved it.

    I had my Dish Remote Access app bring both episodes to my phone so I could watch them at lunch today. Trust us With Your Life made me laugh, but I am still on the fence. The concept did feel a little tired, but it was nice seeing Wayne and Colin again. I showed some coworkers at Dish an episode and they thought I was watching Who’s Line is it Anyway.

    You, Jessica (the author of this article) are a loser. I have not laughed this hard since Whose Line is it Anyway left the air. I watched the Mark Cuban episode on Hulu. Twice, back to back. I almost busted a gut laughing at Armand mime “We Are The Champions,” and “I will Survive” the week before. His facial expressions kill me. We = wee… I can’t wait for next week’s episodes and will tell everyone I know to watch. Please spare us from the Kardashians and Lohan – they would only ruin a great thing.

    The problem is the author considers Kim Kardashian a celebrity but not a self-made billionaire owner of NBA Championship basketball team and a seven-time BAFTA Awards, two-time Emmy Awards, three-time Golden Globe Awards and the 2006 Rose d’Or winner. This is so poorly written, I honestly thought it was satire.
