Watch ‘Art Of The Prank’ Trailer And Clip

Kew Media Group is set to release “Art of the Prank” on U.S. VOD platforms on Monday October 9th, the all-new Award-winning documentary film that follows Joey Skaggs, a fierce proponent of independent thinking and an early critic of media irresponsibility, as he sets out to pull off the most demanding hoax of his career.

Directed by Andrea Marini, “Art of the Prank” is an emotional and humorous journey following the godfather of the media hoax and one of America’s most notorious socio-political satirists. Joey Skaggs is famed for highly publicized media fictions including Celebrity Sperm Bank, the Cathouse for Dogs, the Fat Squad, and Portofess (a mobile Catholic confessional booth). The film offers viewers a unique view into the mind of Joey Skaggs, inviting them to follow as he sets out to pull off the most demanding hoax of his career, intertwining the present with a journey through his classic work.

“Art of the Prank” is a Relight Films production, directed and produced by Andrea Marini, produced by Judy Drosd and Michele Malfetta and executive produced by John Cioffi, Guido Marini, John J. Cioffi III and Donald A. Barton. The cinematography is by Andrea Marini and Ben Carey, with original music by Philip Abussi and editing by Emanuele Muscolino and Andrea Marini.

Andrea Marini says: “When I first encountered Joey’s work, I was completely blown away. I knew that this story needed to be told, and that it was going to be a wild ride. The film embraces many subjects, from media responsibility to pressing social issues to the role of art in activism. But at its core, it’s a film about a man who, against great odds, is driven to make broad social commentary with his art.”
