California Man Wants To Set Guinness Record For April Fools’ Day Pranks

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A California comedian is hoping to set a Guinness record for pulling the most April Fools’ pranks in one day – no fooling.

Russell Stolnack makes his living appearing at corporate events and pretending to be a serious lecturer who gives crazy advice.

He wants to set a world’s record for pulling the most pranks on Friday (April 1) by doing bogus interviews for as many radio stations, TV stations and newspapers as possible in one day.

Stolnack is willing to impersonate crooked corporate execs, ping pong players addicted to steroids, Barry Bonds’ younger brother or an ex-drummer of U2.

He hopes to do 200 prank interviews on April Fools’ Day and will prepare for the prank-a-thon by boning up on various regional accents.

Although he would like to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for his efforts, Stolnack’s real dream is to have audience members take him seriously and confront him on the air because, “That’s when the fun really begins.”
