Have you ever wished “America’s Funniest Home Videos” were more…dance-y?
Yes, you say? Well, your wish has been granted: ABC Family will premiere a new comedy clip show, “Dancing Fools,” on Wednesday, May 29 at 9 pm EST. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is: a collection of video snippets of people doing funny/weird/ridiculous dance things. Here’s hoping the host, Melissa Peterman, can spout color commentary that lives up to the awesome punniness of “AFHV” hosts Bob Saget and Tom Bergeron. (Bob Saget! Where did you go, Bob Saget?)
There is a bit of a twist: Each week, the dancers from the two most memorable clips will compete onstage for a chance to take home $10,000. And the first episode will also feature an appearance by Gary Brolsma—a.k.a. the “Numa Numa” guy—who’ll be inducted into the “Hall of Fools.” (Does that mean he gets a trophy that looks like this? Say yes.)
Name of the show aside, it sounds like “Dancing Fools” is looking for videos of great dancers as well as crazy ones. The only catch? You can’t be a professional. To submit your best dance vid, visit dancingfoolscasting.com.
