      Josh Modell AV Club Funny is funny, many comedians-especially Carolla-would argue. It's hard to disagree with that on some level, but it's also pretty hard to find enough laughs in Crank Yankers 2019 to make it worth watching. Rated: C- Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Joel Keller Decider Does the world need new episodes of Crank Yankers? No. But if you're tired of watching the latest heavy, thinky Peak TV show, puppets making prank calls is a good way to rest your brain. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review
