The Thinking Cap is a Robloxian comedy series that debuted on June 26, 2017 on AAK Network, hosted by AwesomeAlexK. It pokes fun at many real-life and ROBLOX events and celebrities in the style of a satirical talk show. The show was initially set to premiere on the channel's Greenex late night block, but since AAKN itself needed a debut original show, that plan was changed. The show is currently the only AAKN show to carry a "13" rating.
AwesomeAlexK, nicknamed "The Thinking Cap" due to his outfit, is depicted as a desperate-for-attention, insecure, shy person who later finds out his talent and mind. He finds out that he entertains many viewers, so he becomes a confident comedian later in the series.
The show usually starts in about a 5-10 minute monologue where AwesomeAlexK begins by describing what happened on the day, then continuing to poke fun at celebrities or people in general. After the monologue, Alex continues on an inside look on current events. Near the end, Alex goes home and watches TV (which you can see what he is watching) and then makes comments. The show usually ends in a farewell and blessing to the viewers.
It currently has one season with eight episodes. On July 12, 2017, AAK Network renewed the show for a second season.

- The original episode/concept of the show, known as "The Second Try", was scrapped and samplers recommended the show not air on AAKN at all due to an offensive joke made about Obama and Trump. The producers made another pilot of the show to avoid controversy.
- The show was originally going to air on Greenex at a 7PM slot.
- The show's pilot was aired on Ultimate Driving's Newark in a private server, however most other episodes are aired in a private room which is in an upcoming club made by AwesomeAlexK.
- It is the only AAKN show to have a "13" rating.
- There are two versions of episode 2, however, the first was edited due to change of events and "not aligning with AAK Co's values".
