Internet video series shoots 30
episodes before a live audience at historic lot.

Hollywood—Hollywood Center Studios hosts MTV’s hit comedy series Ridiculousness, which  recently completed shooting
its fifth and sixth seasons. The show, in which host Rob Drydek presents the
most hysterical and absurd videos found on the internet, is shot

line-up of special guests, including rapper phenom Future, R&B singer/songwriter
Ne-Yo and internet video super-team Smosh, and introduces new categories like
“Power Kiss”, “Everyday Demons”, “Human Glitches” and “Magnet Feet.” 

Hollywood Center Studios supplies the show with a stage, an
HD control room, HD camera systems, lighting, make-up and costume rooms, a
green room, parking and other facilities. Production for seasons five and six was
completed in three two-week sessions with two episodes produced in each shoot

Producer Josh Green. “We shoot ten episodes in two weeks. It could be
stressful, but Hollywood Center Studios’ one-stop-shopping makes it easy. When
we come in, everything is there.”
These shoots can be unpredictable since much of what happens
on the show is spontaneous and unrehearsed. One episode featured an appearance
by Floyd Mayweather Jr. When Drydek challenged the boxer about his reputation
for traveling with a million dollars in cash, Mayweather promptly emptied a

Recalling the episode, Green notes that he appreciates the
security that comes with shooting on a gated lot. The iconic studio also
provides easy access for celebrity guests, hassle free audience management and
a cool vibe. “They always accommodate us,” Green says. “We’re happy to be
