KZ: Hi Pip! You’re a prank professional! Now that you've hosted a pranking show, are you constantly thinking of potential pranks?
P: I’d be lying if I said no. LOL! But I’m so used to grand scale pranks now, that anything not involving a cast of actors and props is like, nope. I think I have opened Pandora’s Box of pranks and I don’t know if I can go back. Haha!
KZ: What makes someone a really good distractor for a prank plan?
P: Confidence is key. That, and fake it ‘til you make it! Often the distractors are doing such bizarre things that the people being pranked just don’t know what to think. We always give them really good outfits and disguises and they have never met the kids before; they actually believe what they are seeing. If you’re getting your friend in on it, then I would say, the ability to go with it makes a good distractor. I’m not encouraging lying here, but get good at exaggerating truths! Always get a confident friend in on it; get someone who you can trust in any situation. One thing we’ve learned doing this show is you can never guess where a prank is going to go!
KZ: Who is your biggest pranking inspiration?
P: I have to give a shout out to Scott Tweedie from the old ABC3 show Prank Patrol! I grew up watching that show. Release the Ninjas!
