From making fun of ridiculous television shows to hosting the most ridiculous of them all, John Henson found success among the most bizarre of televised entertainment. A long-running host of E!'s Talk Soup (where he was also a writer and co-executive producer), Henson brought audiences laugh-worthy clips from the week's TV programs, mocking stupid reality shows and poorly scripted dramas. Now, he hosts Wipeout, a competition challenge where people attempt to get through insane obstacle courses, complete with giant foam hammers, huge swinging balls and the like. Watch Henson and his famous skunk-spot visit the Improv, where he returns to his roots and headlines a night of comedy and standup laughs.
