CMT says it’s ‘Guaranteed to Make You Laugh or Give You Gas.’
“It’s a sad day when your car’s Blue Book value doubles with a full tank of super unleaded,” says comedian Tom Mabe, commenting on the rising cost of gasoline. “Won’t be long before NASCAR adds a carpool lane!”
Mabe is the star of the new TV series “Mabe in America” and CMT is so sure Mabe can make you laugh, they’re putting their money where your gas is.
It’s the “Mabe in America:” Guaranteed to Make You Laugh or Give You Gas’ promotion and the prize is $10,000 worth of pre-paid gas cards.
Andy Holeman, vice president of consumer marketing at CMT says, “I think we will be hard pressed to find 1,000 people who don’t agree this show is hilarious, but considering the cost of gas, I don’t think we’ll have a problem finding people who overlook the ‘honor system’ for a little help at the gas pump.”
The light-hearted six-episode series features Mabe and his crew wreaking havoc on unsuspecting passers-by with pranks that include preying on common pet peeves, including annoying loud cell-phone talkers and blue-tooth users, as well as reactions to incompetent doctors and lazy ambulance drivers. Tom Mabe is a nationally recognized comedian whose CDs include ‘Prank It Up’ and ‘Revenge on the Telemarketers’. Mabe makes a living delivering jokes about junk-email, bad customer service, high gas prices and anything else that ticks off Americans. He has been dubbed the “troubleshooter-troublemaker” and “comic with a cause” by several national magazines and TV shows.
CMT’s launches with the new series on Friday, July 4 at CMT.com.
