I’m sure you people must be asking yourselves, who’s Captain Janks? Who the hell would name themselves Captain Janks anyways? Honestly, when I first heard the name, I thought this guy was some pornstar or something!
Anyways, if you don’t who the legend is, you may know him as the “Brian Westbrook-ESPN-Pranker”.
Still don’t know? Maybe this will refresh your memory:
Haha. It was even funnier when your watching live on Sports Center! Well now that you know who this mad man is, let me tell you more about him, and give you some personal insight on Mr.Janks himself, otherwise known as Thomas Cipriano.
Some of you may know Mr. Cipriano from his helariously funny phone call pranks which almost 100% of the time include his infamous phrases which include the great Howard Stern! Others might know Mr.Cipriano from Howard Stern’s radio show itself.
Janks is mostly known to use his pranks on national radio and television programs, which can most certainly get him into BIG trouble, and has gotten him to the point where his own attorney dumped him. Sad. But the fact is, this guy has straight up balls to do this stuff. Seriously.
Some may wonder, why choose the name Captain Janks? Well, believe it or not, the prankster got his nickname from being an officer in the US army. His former name is the army was indeed Captain Janks.
Janks first got the gig by calling in the Howard Stern show almost daily. His usual routine would consist of busting on Stern’s morning man John DeBella. Janks would usually crack on his baldness, and a few other comments I would much rather not say…
His current occupancy is working at a gas staion. What a great man! No, really. According to Howard 100 News reporter Steve Langford, Captain Janks knows more about Journalism than almost anyone. Supposedly to the point where he should begin teaching it proffessionally.
Would I put my money on it…probably not.
Now, I don’t really care about him personally (like many of you), so that was just a quick bio. Now here’s the good stuff.
I now present to you, the best of Captain Janks:
