Live prank calling refers to soundboard prank calls broadcast in real-time, as calls happen, in the present. The Toy Chest, a private chat on Ventrillo, was the first to perform live calls before an audience. Established in 2008, the channel was restricted well-known "Duncan-era" pranksters such as TheGoldenPhone, MistahBlonde, Mr88Nismo, Nomadcowatbk, TotalRedial, and WorldClassPrankster. Select calls from these sessions were sometimes recorded and later uploaded to YouTube.

The first live calls made available to a general audience were hosted by FridockShir and SEECO1000, however, these calls were later removed by YouTube. Prank Hill and Wilford Brimley began hosting regular live events, the latter continuing to hold regular weekend calls via internet streaming, beginning in early-2013. After Wilford Brimley LIVE went on hiatus in September 2013, Kyra and Mobie started The Kyra And Mobiethian Show (now called Dialtone Disasters) which premiered on January 8, 2014.

On March 20, 2014, PranksAreUs84 expressed his interest in Live prank calling in the future, due to receiving help from The Kyra and Mobiethian show. He conducted his first session on April Fools Day.

Live prank calls allow the listeners, soundboard fans and pranksters alike, to hear the calls unedited and in their entirety. In addition, fans are given the ability to participate in the calls themselves by suggesting ideas and requests to the host in the comments section.

Two live prank call shows that are currently active are Pran Funkels and Dialtone Disasters.
