20th Anniversary of The Jerky Boys. Spin this Tough Guy!

It’s hard to believe that it has been twenty years since The Jerky Boys, the hands-down masters of the crank call, began releasing their brand of telephone mischief on an unsuspecting public. Passed around as bootleg cassette tapes for several years before the release of their first studio album, the Queens-based comedy duo of Johnny Brennan and the man simply known as Kamal took the world by storm that steamy summer with a crude, but ultimately hilarious comedy style that had serious appeal among boys and young men.

Everyone has their “15 minutes of fame” and the late 80’s and early 90’s certainly provided The Jerky Boys with theirs. Their CDs sold millions and a feature length film starring the pair was greenllit. It certainly looked like the sky was the limit for the Boys and their relentless terrorizing of some of New York’s less intelligent working class men and women.

But all good things eventually come to an end. The Jerky Boys Movie opened and closed with little fanfare – and audiences soon tired of two grown men asking complete strangers if they remembered “their shoes and glasses.”

But for those who love a good prank call, those days will always be remembered – and the first album still stands as a comedy classic. Johnny has since tried his hand at several solo ventures, but none have recreated the magic that we all shared two decades ago…JERKY!
