My nephew turned me on to this show. All 4 of these guys are very talented and what I enjoy most is the fact that their reactions are so genuine and don't seem scripted and fake as so many other shows do. The reactions are always amusing. The show differs from other prank television programs in that the stars of Impractical Jokers do not know the details of the prank until the moment they are performing it on strangers. However, this show quickly loses it's appeal. So glad I came across it.
Off the wall, who can make who do the most zany public display of insanity. If the friend with the earpiece doesn't do what they tell him to, he loses that round. As I said earlier, I thought the show was idiotic at first, but then I began to watch more and more and I have now seen nearly every single episode of theirs. However, they would likely be more successful is they quit with this nonsense and develop a new series. I love anything and everything comedy. I have not laughed one single time at season 3 and some things they do are hard to sit through. Does a decent review require a minimum of ten lines to be considered valid? At the end of each episode, the loser must perform what is deemed to be the most-mortifying challenge yet.
What makes this show different from other hidden camera series is that Q, Murr, Sal and Joe are caught completely offguard when told by their friends what to say and do, making their reactions just as hilarious as the unlucky stranger being exploited. Since they were young, the quartet have challenged one another to do ridiculous dares in public. The jokes were pretty generic and many things were repeats of things in the first season, the punishments were a little too boring or risqué. I have never laughed as hard at something as I do watching this show. They shook everyone of their fans hands and took pictures with everyone that came out to meet them. Impractical Jokers premiered last night with two back-to-back episodes, and it had me laughing non-stop for an hour. Now that they're in the third season, the show has changed, but not in a good way.
They actually had a meet and greet with their fans in New York City last year. It's hilarious and it only takes 15 minutes to get hooked for life. It is the funniest show I have seen in years. Shows like Operation Repo, Hardcore Pawn, Storage Hunters, Lizard Lick Towing, South Beach Tow, etc. Joe got married, Q and Sal have ugly beards and Murr is more of a douche than ever. Also, if they cast new families each week, they could become executive producers, cash in, and stop overacting or staging annoying laughter!!! It's definitely a barrel of laughs and shows a great amount of camaraderie between the four pranksters. At this point, it is not the absolute worst show on television, but I would only recommend it is you were stuck in bed post op and high on pain pills.
Keep it up guys, you'll be famous in no time! If you have a sense of humor, you will like this show. I don't know how anyone cannot laugh along with these guys. Four lifelong friends pulling pranks on strangers in front of hidden camera. Impractical Jokers is absolutely hilarious! If it weren't for Murr, this show would be a lot less funny. I'm not usually one to fall for a simple laugh. Joe is the guy that never appears to be scared -- on certain pranks that have the three others tell Joe what to say, Joe says it nearly every single time, no matter how embarrassing, awkward, mean or crude it is. Either I'm losing my sense of humor, or these guys are starting to sour.
Family friendly shows have longevity. This show is hilarious, check it out! I still gave them a chance and watched the show. This show is so raw and entertaining. If I could give this show more than ten stars I would. The boys never fail to deliver the goods, and the reactions of those around them are just as funny. I turned on reruns of this show one day in a fraternity house and within 30 minutes the entire 30 person house was watching and laughing, that is how good this is, everybody who gives it a chance will love it, I guarantee it.
The pranks these guys play on each other are not funny, and the other guys are in a backroom laughing hilariously and uncontrollably like a bunch of junior highschool boys. For those who are unaware, this show involves four unfunny, talentless numbskulls who try to prank each other and punish the one who completed the least amount of stunts. This show is absolutely horrible. I hadn't even watched it for two minutes before I began to chuckle and it stayed that way for the duration of the show. On the show, to find out who is best under pressure, the guys compete in awkward and outrageous hidden-camera hijinks. .
Some of my favourite shows are Curb your Enthusiasm, The League, Big Bang Theory and Tosh. That's what is perhaps the best thing about the show because it's on a channel that airs predominantly scripted shows. With the third season renewal, a 6-episode spinoff series was also announced: Jokers After Party. In a way, I find it kind of self-indulgent and narcissistic. Hope this stays on the television for years to come. I just started watching this show, and I'll share a little tidbit of how I began to watch Impractical Jokers.
I quickly because annoyed at hearing the constant guffaws by the 4 guys reviewing their pranks. I really don't know about him haha. This show I predict will be cancelled shortly. Impractical Jokers isn't a show like Jackass, as they primarily had very crude stuff on their show. Usually one of them has an earpiece while the other three friends are feeding them instructions. I watched the 'best of' where they actually interviewed these guys and that's when I became a real fan, because it started out just the four of them doing this without a camera. That's the only reason why I gave it a 3, because it's only good when you're extremely bored or if you want background noise.
