Impractical Jokers is a comedy that has been on TruTV for 8 seasons and counting since 2011. It also recently became available on the streaming service HBO Max. It stars 4 childhood friends named Q, Murr, Joe, and Sal, and in each episode they do hilarious challenges to determine who the “loser” is. The loser/losers then have to do outrageous punishments that include some of the most embarrassing stunts you could possibly think of.
I have only watched some of the episodes, but most of their scenes are incredibly funny. Each of the 4 friends puts full effort into all of the challenges, and none of the episodes are scripted at all (all of the challenges are done with the other friends in a room with cameras telling them what to do). It is a little difficult to explain exactly how each episode goes, but after you watch one you will understand the format of the show.
Impractical Jokers is sort of like a PG version of the show Jackass, which was a show that became famous for its incredibly dangerous and oftentimes indecent dares. Impractical Jokers follows a similar format, except that the dares they do are just stupid and funny, rather than dangerous.
Impractical Jokers is not a show for everyone, but if you are looking for a good laugh and some funny content, it is a great show to watch for a bit. Each episode is only 20 minutes or so, and they always bring something new to the table. Even though these are dares that normal people would never consider doing out of embarrassment, these 4 friends have absolutely no shame and are willing to do almost anything for the sake of comedy.
