Wisconsin TV Station Sues Comedy Duo Who Pretended To Be Fitness 'Experts'

By Zachary Brenner

Getting in shape is hard work, so it is no wonder so many people turn to trainers and fitness experts. It also explains why so many morning shows do segments on health and fitness. Recently "Hello Wisconsin" booked strongman duo Chop and Steele to show the good people of Wisconsin how to get in shape by throwing sticks, hitting tires, and whatever the heck that leg thing is. 

This may come as a shock to you but those two guys aren't really a strongman duo. They are actually two comedians from New York named Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher. The two of them have an upcoming comedy tour and hate doing regular promotions so they decided to see if they could get characters booked. 

Prueher said, "We hated doing promotional appearances on morning shows as ourselves so we thought it would be funny and interesting to see if we could book fake people on these morning shows."
