'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'The Good, The Bad And The Punis
In this week's Impractical Jokers, someone let these guys behind the wheel of a cab and then there's reason to celebrate...not very good reason, though. Why is Sal walking out in front of a car? And will anyone find the missing baby?! Check out our scorecard for this week's episode, "The Good, The Bad and The Punished."

Challenge #1: Crappy Cabbies

The Jokers are posing as cab drivers while doing and saying what they're told. Murr bats lead-off here, and the guys are mocking the fact that he recently gained 13 pounds. Our favorite ferret then has to brush his teeth while driving, includin...

Plus, Murr, Sal, Q and Joe get into trouble with other people's vehicles, and the evening's big loser finds himself at an auction house. Read on for the thumbs up and thumbs down in our Scorecard for "Bidder Loser."

Challenge #1: Help Me Bury This

Can the guys get a stranger to help them bury something in the park? Especially when they don't know what it is? This is one of the show's best bits, and it's back weirder than before. Joe gets stuck with a giant pil...

Challenge #1: Joker See, Joker Do

The guys have to copycat random kids, who are in turn getting directions from the other three Jokers, while interacting with people on the street. There's no time wasted in playing on Sal's being a massive germaphobe, and what follows is the m...

On this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, the fabulous foursome of flailing are once again trying to drum up interest in unconventional products, doing everything but selling shoes, and then spoiling everyone else's day at the zoo.

Challenge #1: Life's a Pitch

The Jokers are once again trying to pitch crazy products to focus groups, except this time they're doing it solo rather than teams of two. Murr's "Crotch Watch" is the last place you'd want a timepiece, but he...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'You're Cut Off' - Microphone In
In this week's Impractical Jokers, the guys take to the streets to ask people about movies and to start protests that no one wants to be a part of. But whether or not they can win the public over, one of them is going to be this week's big loser. Read on to find out who it was and what went down in "You're Cut Off."

Challenge #1: Paper Pushers

The Jokers team up to work at a copy center, doing and saying what they're told. Joe and Sal start off, and their tasks include trying to hypnotize a customer with some uncoordinated jiggling (it obviously doesn't work) and telling someone else tha...

James Murray On Season 5 Of 'Impractical Jokers': 'The Show's Ge
A new year means a new season of Impractical Jokers. The fabulous Staten Island foursome have now spent more than a hundred episodes making us laugh by battling to embarrass each other, and they're not slowing down.

Starpulse caught up with America's favorite ferret, James "Murr" Murray (pictured above bottom with fellow Jokers Brian "Q" Quinn, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano) to talk Season 5 and ask if he's finally embraced his constant comparison to a small, furry animal.

Did he ever think the show would make it to Season 5? "We're amazed we got to episode two," Murr laughed. "I'm amazed non...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'HellCopter' - Sal's Big Plunge
The Impractical Jokers are back for a fifth season packed with laughs, mayhem and public humiliation. In the season premiere "HellCopter," the Jokers revisit an old but good challenge and then completely ruin wax museums for everyone. Who's the big loser? And who does something they'd probably like to take back? Here's our Scorecard.

Challenge #1: Bad Reception
The guys are playing receptionists in another office, having to do and say what they're told. That starts with Joe, who discovers the other Jokers have planted an entire drawer full of hot dogs (naturally he eats one). He then gets ...

The new season of Impractical Jokers begins next week, and so TruTV has released a brand-new trailer filled with clips from what we can expect when Sal, Murr, Q and Joe come back in Season 5.

The season premiere is called "Hell-Copter," and features the Jokers once again taking on the roles of unhelpful receptionists in an office waiting room, as well as visiting a wax museum to perpetrate some shenanigans with the various celebrity statues there. There will be two losers in the episode, both of whom will have to endure a helicopter ride they'd rather forget.

'Impractical Jokers' Charity Auction To Support Staten Island Mu
TruTV's Impractical Jokers are well known for their tremendous amount of charity work, and the comedic foursome are continuing their good works in 2016 by participating in a CharityBuzz auction to raise money for their hometown Staten Island Museum.

The Jokers (aka The Tenderloins) have put up for bid two tickets to their sold out Jan. 31 show at New York's historic Radio City Music Hall. In addition, the winner will be part of the VIP pre-show group meet and greet, where they can take a photo and get autographs from Sal Vulcano, James "Murr" Murray, Brian "Q" Quinn and Joe Gatto (pictured...

'Impractical Jokers' Schedule Marathon For Black Friday
The Impractical Jokers are inviting themselves over to your house for the Thanksgiving holiday. On TV, anyway.

TruTV has announced that tomorrow will be the "Impractical Jokers Black Friday Marathon," in which the network airs twelve episodes of the hidden camera comedy show back to back to...many backs.

The marathon starts at 5 PM ET/PT and contains installments from every season so far, including "Out of TP" (where Joe Gatto tries and fails to teach Portuguese love songs), "Everything's Just Rosie" (the arrival of 'scoopski potatoes' and Rosie O'Donnell), "Theater del Absurdo" (raising ...

'Impractical Jokers' Reveal Top 10 Scenes Never Seen On TV
The Halloween holiday is a perfect excuse for the Impractical Jokers to sneak in some extra laughs (though do they really need an excuse?). Last night, TruTV reached back into the Jokers' vault and made public what they consider the Top 10 deleted scenes from the show so far.

Among these snippets that didn't make it to air are Sal trying to get off the garbage barge he was infamously stranded on, another argument about whether or not Murr looks like a ferret, Q picking a fight in the wrong sub shop and Joe ruining car washes for the rest of human history.

While these are bits and pieces a...

Murr Experiences One Of The Most Outlandish 'Impractical Jokers' Moments Ever

10/24/2015 10:07am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: Getting Theatrical In 'Doomed'
The Impractical Jokers have been going big with their antics recently, and what they put together in this week's episode "Doomed" was outright theatrical. Murr may have thought he'd seen a wheel of doom at the Coney Island sideshow, but what happened to him in this episode was probably one of the most outlandish Jokers moments ever.

But before we get to that, first there were a series of familiar challenges. Not content with the episode where they made things uncomfortable for ladies as assistants in a bridal shop, the guys decided to share the joy by running the same "do and say as you're...

'Impractical Jokers': Sal's Friends Put The Screws To Worse Than Ever Before

10/17/2015 12:06pm EDT
Have The 'Impractical Jokers' Found Sal's Worst Punishment?
Of all the Impractical Jokers, Sal Vulcano is probably the easiest to fluster. He's so polite and so well-intentioned that he embarrasses quickly and he has an entire list of things that upset him. But on this week's episode, "The Taunted House," Sal's friends may have put the screws to him worse than ever before.

Jokers fans know that one of Sal's worst punishments involved being sent through a haunted corn maze. The clip has been played over and over again, as Sal - who hates haunted houses among many other things - was forced to wander through the corn field, avoiding creepy kids, scare...

'Impractical Jokers': See The Fallout From Q's Oversharing

Brian Quinn Shares Too Much Information In 'Impractical Jokers'
The Impractical Jokers are all about getting big laughs in any location, and that's the case in Starpulse's exclusive clip from today's release of their Complete Third Season DVD.

Tasked with playing the world's worst liquor store employee, Brian Quinn approaches an unsuspecting couple and rather than helping them find anything, has to tell them a rough story.

Under the direction of Sal Vulcano, an incredibly awkward Q explains to the shoppers how he once caught his daughter drinking with some guy named Dennis and it didn't end well - for him.

Watch the video below to see the fallout fro...

You Won’t See 'Impractical Jokers' Doing Stunts Like This On TV

10/3/2015 10:01am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Reveal Challenges You Won't See On TV
This week's Impractical Jokers wasn't your ordinary episode. "One Night Stand Up" was actually a broadcasting of the TruTV comedy foursome's live show from a recent evening in Torrington, CT in its entirety.

You see, when they're not embarrassing each other on national television, Joe, Murr, Q and Sal travel the country performing as the Tenderloins, which is the original moniker of their group. These live shows also give them the opportunity to talk about a number of things that wouldn't make it onto TV.

That means unleashing a slideshow that they called "Challenges You'll Never See On T...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Hopeless and Changeless' - Bad
The Impractical Jokers are back, once again trying to persuade strangers to get on board with them in a variety of ways - be it in discussions at the park or flawed presentations. But would you really take advice from any of these guys? Of course you wouldn't.

Keep reading to find out who lost - and who nearly got beaten up - in this week's episode, "Hopeless and Changeless."

Challenge #1: Agree or Disagree?
The guys have to convince a stranger to agree with their given point of view, which of course is bizarre. Q is assigned "You're only a creep if you get caught," and only succeeds in c...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'The Big Uneasy' In New Orleans
After last week's high-flying "Live Punishment," you think the Impractical Jokers would've taken a week off. Nope. Instead, they struck out for another one of their travel episodes, this time bringing the laughs to New Orleans. Read on to find out how they added "Un" to "The Big Easy."

Challenge #1: Steal A Sip

Working in teams, the guys have to bogart a sip of people's Hurricanes. It's Murr working with Q to start with, and Q provides a distraction by plastering tinfoil on his head and hands and pretending to be the world's most low-budget robot. But even with that, the ferret still gets...

Which 'Joker' Won $50,000 For Their Charity?

9/4/2015 9:05am EDT
Who Won The 'Impractical Jokers' Live Punishment?
This week, the Impractical Jokers decided to celebrate their 100th episode by walking on a high wire five stories above New York City. It's certainly a unique way to ring in a milestone, and a pretty scary one at that. So which Joker went the farthest and won $50,000 for their charity? And who was the first to fall?

Read on for our recap of all the Live Punishment shenanigans. But first, here's a video of who just might have been behind it all.

The Jokers took to the South Street Seaport in NYC to test their mettle, in front of an adoring crowd and master of ceremonies Howie Mandel. Sal...

'Impractical Jokers': Tonight's Live Punishment Has Sal 'Pretty
The Impractical Jokers have done a lot of crazy things over the last 99 episodes, but what they're about to do tonight takes the cake. To celebrate their 100th installment, the Jokers are performing a live high wire walk five stories above New York City, for their charities and your entertainment.

Why on Earth would they choose this way to mark the occasion? And how scared are they? We caught up with Sal Vulcano on Tuesday to ask him those questions and more about tonight's event.

"I'm pretty scared," Sal admitted when we asked him to gauge his level of fear. "We have the harness and stuf...

This Week’s 'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Smushed'

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Smushed' - Totally Clowning Aro
In this week's Impractical Jokers, the fearless foursome go back to two of their regular bits - screwed-up PowerPoint presentations and getting too close to strangers in the park - with the usual hilarious results. It just goes to show you, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is broke, it's probably because these guys destroyed it anyway.

Challenge #1: Security Insultants

The guys are teaming up to give presentations again, this time as security consultants as if they could protect anything. Murr and Joe are the first duo up, pitching things like "delayed assistance" and "Safe Dogz" th...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Tied and Feathered' - The Best
In this week's Impractical Jokers, Sal, Murr, Q and Joe bring back one of their most notorious bits, while getting into a really uncomfortable situation at the local discount warehouse that actually has nothing to do with the making of the show itself. Let's just say it's a very exposing episode. Read on for our blow-by-blow from "Tied and Feathered."

Challenge #1: Out of Remote Control

The remote control car is back, terrorizing passersby while the guys absolutely cannot apologize for wherever their colleagues steer it. Q goes first and gets out pretty much unharmed, as does Joe.

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Sneaking Number Twos, Going Num
This week's episode of Impractical Jokers features the return of one of the show's best bits, plus some truly cringe-worthy cell phone hijinks. It's the kind of stuff you could never imagine getting away with, so naturally these guys really don't. Check out our scorecard for the imaginatively titled "Sneaking Number Twos, Going Number One."

Challenge #1: Putpocketing II

Yay, putpocketing is back! This is another one of those Impractical Jokers games that just seems like a good idea. Sal (or as he's being referred to again, Ja'Crispy) goes first and benefits from a woman's open jacket hood...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Kill The Centaur' - An Evening
This week's episode of Impractical Jokers involves climbing on statues, too many balls, and someone possibly getting killed. In other words, it's pretty much everything you'd expect from this show. Read on for our Jokers Scorecard for "Kill the Centaur."

Challenge #1: Sporting Goofs

The guys are working at a local sporting goods store, having to do and say what they're told. Murr gets a terrible opening line, having to say "I feel like a prostitute," which does not go over well with the customer he's helping. Next, he has to confuse a tennis outfit with a sleeping bag, which means putting...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Bathroom Break' - Get On The Ho
TruTV's Impractical Jokers are finally back with new episodes to finish out their season, and they're not wasting any time embarrassing themselves on national television. Here's what went down in the midseason premiere, "Bathroom Break."

Challenge #1: Braking Bad
The guys have to do and say as they're told while working as auto parts salesmen. Sal is annoyed that somebody can't spell his name right (it's three letters!), but then breaks out his sassy alter-ego to help his first customer. He voluntarily takes a loss - and leaves the premises - rather than call his second customer the 'B' wo...

'Impractical Jokers': Joe And Murr Preview New Episodes
Last week, the Impractical Jokers once again crashed San Diego Comic-Con - this time, with an entire museum in their honor. Starpulse visited the Museum of Impractical History and caught up with two of the funny foursome, Joe Gatto and James "Murr" Murray, to learn about the new episodes that start tonight and what it's like for them to be Comic-Con celebrities.

Last Friday, the guys visited San Diego's Humphreys Concerts by the Bay with their "Where's Larry?" Tour, and it was a little bit of an achievement. "We've only done one other show outdoors in four years of touring," Murr revealed....

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Cruisin' For A Bruisin' - Not T
This week's episode of Impractical Jokers takes place on a cruise ship, because the guys weren't satisfied with wreaking havoc on land, apparently. But on a confined boat, there's nowhere to run and not a lot of places to hide. Here's what went down in "Cruisin' For A Bruisin'," except for the awesome retro introduction.

Challenge #1: Pains In The Deck
Can the guys complete assigned tasks while mingling with the innocent passengers? Q's job is to use the guy next to him as a towel, which he does while discussing the subject of a potential mutiny. Joe's choice of shorts is questionable, so ...
