The upcoming season of Impractical Jokers is much anticipated by their loyal fanbase. The outrageous pranks that the cast play on each other and others bring comic relief to many households.  In Impractical Jokers, four longtime friends try to embarrass one another by giving each other embarrassing dares to fulfill in public. The point of the show is to try and get one of the friends to not follow through with their prank.  Impractical Jokers’ motto is “if you refuse, you lose,” as the joker with the most failed attempts by the end of the episode is labeled the “big loser.”  The big loser faces a punishment at the end of each episode, where the jokers get to put the loser in the most embarrassing situation possible. 

Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn, Joe Gatto, and James “Murr” Murray, all perform these ridiculous public stunts for our entertainment.  Each joker has pulled outrageous pranks and undergone brutal punishments over the course of the first six seasons.  One of the most notorious pranks was carried out by Joe in New York City.  The rule of this challenge was to try and cut an extremely long line of people without getting noticed.  How did he do it? Joe pretended that he had a friend named “Larry” whom he was looking for in the front of the line.  Surprisingly, the stunt actually worked. 

Season seven, which premiered on Feb. 1, has been long awaited by fans all around the globe.  Many students are excited for the new season, and the excitement has been growing for a long time.

“I am very excited for the new season, and I would love to see Joe be the big loser.  My favorite character is Sal because he does anything he is asked,” said sophomore Alexander Stapleton. 

Many students have different opinions of the jokers and the pranks they pull off, but overall, students enjoy the comic relief. 

“I can’t wait to spend every Thursday night catching up with the group’s shenanigans,” said sophomore Julia Liu. 

People easily fall in love with the show because it a brings a fresh kind of comedy to television.  The guys are true friends who love to pull pranks on each other, which makes the show far more relatable.  Much of the show’s appeal lies in its funny, lighthearted humor.  None of the acting is staged and all of the comedy is raw, which attracts even more fans. 

The jokers also hold live shows all over America.  These shows broadcast unseen clips from current and previous seasons, and, of course, stand-up comedy from each of the jokers themselves.  The cast of the Impractical Jokers brings amusement to many families all over the world, and season seven is expected to bring more iconic moments to the show’s ever-growing list of pranks.
