Bas Rutten to Star in the Greatest Show Ever Made

At first glance, Bas Rutten’s new show may seem kind of a strange concept, but when you think about it, it will likely be nothing but pure comedic gold.

Touted by the network as being “a comedic, street fighting survival series,” “Punk Payback” will feature 10 1/2-hour episodes of Bas doing what he does in his famous self-defense videos, which is explain how to get out of bad situations using your fists, knees, feet, elbows and whatever inanimate objects are at your disposal.

What’s not to love?

During the show, El Guapo will break down surveillance footage of real attacks and robberies and explain how the victim could have fended off their assailants using simple techniques like ramming them in the ass with pepper bottles or slamming their heads off of parked cars.

Here’s the official description from the Fox Sports Media Group:

Approaching serious subject matters in humorous ways, “Punk Payback” with Bas Rutten showcases combat moves that can help viewers avoid being “punked” on the street. Using real surveillance footage of frightening events such as people getting carjacked or held up in a convenience store, Rutten mixes in reenactments to offer tips on how to get out of these tenuous situations. His specialized fighting skills, combined with his amusing personality, make for a uniquely educational and entertaining self-defense show.

The show will premiere on FUEL TV on Wednesday, November 2 at 9:30PM ET/PT and will run in the same time slot for the following 10 weeks.

“Bas is one of the most charismatic characters I’ve ever met and he can fill up a TV screen all by himself,” says George Greenberg, FUEL TV Executive Vice President and GM. “We’re happy to bring him to FUEL TV with this exciting and fun show that mixes humor into educational survival situations. If a punk starts it, rest assured, Bas will finish it every time.”

“You won’t see a show like this anywhere else on television,” says Bud Brutsman, BCII CEO and Executive Producer. “Bas addresses some serious topics in this fast-paced series. But he’ll have fun with the situations as well.”

I wonder how the victims will feel when they tune in and hear Bas say:
“That wimp should never have given the mugger his wallet. Instead he should have said, I’m sorry…No I’m not…Bang, bang band to the head and danga da dangada dang to the throat. There’s your wallet, you creep!”

This show sounds too awesome to air. I fully expect the network to cancel it before the first show is complete.

Can I take Nyquil for comedic cold?

i hope it's got more production value than an internet clip show... but bas alone is more entertaining than tosh, so that's a plus. also, "Bas Rutten: Stab the Liver" should be the name, not Punk Payback.

Internet clip show hosted by Bas Rutten. Yawn.
I thought this was going to be Bas' version of Bully Beatdown, with Bas himself delivering the ass-kickings. That would be win.
