TruTV's Impractical Jokers follows the four members of comedy troupe The Tenderloins as they surprise unwitting strangers with deliciously awkward situations designed to milk audiences of every last drop of laughter. At their uproarious live shows, The Tenderloins expand on the program's content, flexing their standup muscles, weaving a hilarious version of their backstory, and airing the naughty bits they aren't allowed to show on TV. The foursome had crowds rolling on the floor with their slapstick sketches and agile improv skills at their 2013 shows, and the 2014 TruTV Impractical Jokers Tour is sure to be no different.
The TruTV television series Impractical Jokers premiered to critical acclaim in 2011, drawing comparisons to likeminded reality shows Candid Camera and Jackass. At the show's heart are The Tenderloins, the four comedians responsible for the hilarious and oftentimes unexpected situations that make the show such an improv goldmine. Joe, James, Brian, and Sal, as they're affectionately known by fans, got together in 1999 as a live improv troupe, catapulting to internet stardom in the mid-'00s with their ridiculous original sketches and videos. Their online success turned the right heads, resulting in their TV debut on Impractical Jokers in 2011.
FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:
"From beginning to end the show was nothing but laughter. Four of the funniest and nicest guys you'd ever want to meet!"
"We loved these guys before and are completely obsessed with them now. It was non-stop hysterical laughing. You get to see clips from the show that were never televised and just how down to earth these jokers are."
"Their standup approach was a bit different, but it was very effective. My stomach hurt from laughing too hard numerous times during their comedy routine."
