I "Big Time Paranoia" introducerer Gintberg publikum for et helt nyt begreb - comedy terapi – hvilket var noget, der i den grad fik løsnet lattermusklerne hos publikum og anmelderne, da showet turnerede landet i foråret 2007. Med sin energiske, sarkastiske og selvironiske fremtoning beviser Jan Gintberg, at man i stedet for at søge læge måske kan løse egne problemer blot ved at åbne for lattermusklerne og give los. I løbet af to timer har publikum overgivet sig og forstået budskabet.
In Big Time Paranoia Jan Gintberg reflects upon terror, safety, stress and the anxiety of changes in a way only Jan Gintberg can deliver it.
The infamous Shounen Bat (Lil' Slugger) is terrorizing the residents of Musashino City. Flying around on his rollerblades and beating people down with a golden baseball bat, the assailant seems impossible to catch—much less understand. His first victim, the well-known yet timid character designer Tsukiko Sagi, is suspected of orchestrating the attacks. Believed only by her anthropomorphic pink stuffed animal, Maromi, Tsukiko is just one of Shounen Bat's many victims. As Shounen Bat continues his relentless assault on the town, detectives Keiichi Ikari and Mitsuhiro Maniwa begin to investigate the identity of the attacker. However, more and more people fall victim to the notorious golden bat, and news of the assailant begins circulating around the town. Paranoia starts to set in as chilling rumors spread amongst adults and children alike. Will the two detectives be able to unravel the truth behind Shounen Bat, or will the paranoia get to them first?
Paranoia was a short-lived offering on the Fox Family channel that aired from April to May in 2000. The show was the last game show hosted by Peter Tomarken, and the first game show since the 1950s to be recorded live with contestants playing in the studio, by satellite, over the phone, and on the show's website.
