The Hands on an Audience Member Episode is the seventh episode of The Chris Gethard Show season 1 on MNN. It aired between The Last Small Studio Show and The Kickboxer Episode. The panel chooses a random audience member and brings him up onstage, where they all must keep their hands on him for an hour. Panelists are repeatedly harassed with pranks by the crew to make them let go. Anyone who lets go must do iPod Karaoke, where you sing along to a song that nobody else can hear. The live call in topic for this episode was to talk about the closest you've ever come to dying.
