Nuts Entertainment (new full title: Nuts Entertainment It's Playtime) was a sketch comedy television show in the Philippines that aired every Saturday evening by GMA Network (replacing Obra to Thursdays). It was part of the network's GMA KiliTV block. The show originally aired every Wednesdays.

The show was very popular for its unscripted, spontaneous and off-the-wall party games between two teams of cast members with celebrity guests and audience participants. The party games proved so popular that the sketch comedies were completely dropped to give more time to them. The games have even evolved from being just played in the studio to popular tourist resorts around the country and done in a sort of Amazing Race fashion. Other popular segments of the show were Balakubak: Balita At Kuwentong Bakla, a no-holds-barred celebrity hotseat interview portion, and Jak en Poy, a pie-throwing and water balloon battle between two teams of ordinary citizens led by Cookie and Belli based on the outcome of the game of Rock Paper Scissors.

In December 2008, the show had a Christmas holiday drama special called "Nut's Entertainment Holiday Drama Special", with included the Nuts casts for their acting and dramatic skills instead of comedy laughs. The episode was the last to be aired. It has since been replaced by Kapuso Movie Festival.

It was already announced by GMA that a new comedy talk show, Cool Center, would be occupying Nuts Entertainment's time slot starting in February, with Anjo Yllana hosting. The network was looking for a female host to co-star with Yllana who turned out to be Eugene Domingo.
