Hosted by Emmy Award winner Tom Bergeron, America’s Funniest Home Videos is the longest-running primetime entertainment show in the history of ABC. Each week, the AFV team evaluates thousands of user-submitted home videos, to bring you America’s ‘real-life’ funny moments captured on video.
AFV offers a weekly $10,000 first place prize to the funniest or most unusual video as voted on by the in-studio audience. Those first-place prizewinners move on to the next competition round where they vie for a $100,000 prize. At the end of the season, the $100,000 prizewinners compete for a Grand Prize vacation package.
AFV has become an iconic part of North American pop culture, as evidenced by its entry into the Smithsonian’s permanent entertainment collection. Today, AFV is syndicated in over 50 countries around the world, spreading North American humor and clumsiness across the globe!
