Fake Chef Fools Midwest Morning Shows


Over the holidays a chef named Keith Guerke showed up on some Midwestern morning shows to give viewers tips on making fun food from leftovers.

Trouble is Guerke isn’t a chef and its not his real name. He’s part of a duo that created something called the Found Footage Festival.

According to the festival’s website, “Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher of the Found Footage Festival posed Prueher as an incompetent chef named Chef Keith and attempted to get him booked on local morning news shows in the Midwest. The result was five disastrous TV appearances.”

He showed off recipes like the mashed potato ice cream cone and told one AM anchor “The average person eats like a pound and a half of feces a year. No thank you.”

Guerke appeared on Wausau, WI, CBS affiliate WSAW, Milwaukee FOX affiliate WITI, NBC affiliate WJFW in Rhinelander, WI, NBC affiliate WREX and FOX affiliate WQRF in Rockford, IL.
