TruTV's "Impractical Jokers" Takes Pranking In Public To A Whole New Level

Prepare for something amazing. 

They aren't your typical comedians. They're four life-long friends who compete to embarrass each other in TruTV's original series, "The Impractical Jokers", a comedic gem like no other.

Brian "Q" Quinn, James "Murr" Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano take dares to the next level.

On the show, the quartet competes in awkward and ridiculously hilarious hidden-camera pranks that spark uncontrollable laughter or uncomfortable confusion. Unlike other prank shows, the Impractical Jokers aren't given details of the prank until the moment they perform it on strangers.

And the best part?  Some people actually play along!  At the end of each episode, the person who fails the challenges most often is placed on the loser board. The loser, then, gets to endure a not-so-pleasant, sometimes horrifying, punishment put together by the winners, far worse than the actual challenges themselves.

Cheers to your daily dose of laughter!
