The Prank Fother (stereotype forFather, as pron. by a South Indian) is a 2-3min animation series in the voice of the famed RJ/ Comedian/ Improv and Impersonation Artist from Bengaluru, Danish Sait.

The series is based on prank calls made to random strangers by Danish Sait posing as a new character in every new call , -police officer, a call centre executive, a restaurant manager, a musician, a responsible citizen, a travel agent, prospective groom or any such seemingly unassuming everyday Indian names like Asgarh, Chacko, Nagraj, while pulling a very convincing, LYAO scenario each time.

The viewer, in spite of knowing all the while that he is watching a prank in action, will be taken by surprise each time by the sheer off-guardedness of Danish's situational humor.
