About truTV's Impractical Jokers
truTV's hit series Impractical Jokers centers on Q, Murr, Joe and Sal, four longtime friends who dare one another to do ridiculous things in public, then capture their extreme dares on hidden camera, complete with the unsuspecting public's amused, confused, or flabbergasted reactions. After completing each dare, the guys are given a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down to determine who succeeded under pressure and who collapsed in defeat. At the end of each episode, the guy with the most fails must face a mortifying punishment with truly humiliating consequences.
