Candid Camera is a reality television series of practical jokes performed in
front of a hidden camera with unsuspecting participants. She show, created
and produced by Allen Funt (above), initially began on radio as Candid
Microphone

Candid Microphone, Funt brought his concept to ABC television on August
10, 1948 with announcer Ken Roberts. He hosted or co-hosted almost all
of the TV versions until 1993 when he suffered a stroke and never
recovered. His son Peter Funt, who had co-hosted specials with his
father since 1987, became the producer and host of the show.
