LANDMARK 100th IMPRACTICAL JOKERS EPISODE WITH EPIC LIVE FIVE STORY HIGH-WIRE WALK

The Impractical Jokers LIVE Punishment Special Hosted By Howie Mandel from South Street Seaport in New York City Thursday, Sept. 3 at 10 P. M. ET / 7 P.M. PT

truTV's Impractical Jokers foursome - Joe, Sal, Q and Murr - today announced via social media that in celebration of their groundbreaking 100th episode, they will take on their most challenging dare yet: an epic high-wire walk five stories in the air above New York City during the show's first ever live punishment extravaganza. To prepare, the Jokers have called upon the expertise of Ringling Bros. Circus clown and "World's Greatest Dare Devil" Bello Nock, to provide training and tips on the art of successful tightrope walking. With multiple cameras positioned to capture every moment and New York City's South Street Seaport as the backdrop, the quartet known for challenging one another to do the most outrageous dares in publi c will attempt to outdo each other to see who can walk the farthest distance. Set to air Thursday, Sept. 3, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT., the can't-miss Impractical Jokers Live Punishment Special will reveal which Joker will be the first to drop and who will hang on the longest to claim victory for their favorite charity.

"Joe, Sal, Q and Murr are a very important part of the truTV family and we are beyond excited to celebrate the 'Impractical Jokers' milestone 100th episode in such an exciting way," says Chris Linn, President and Head of Programming for truTV. "We are thrilled to share this special live event with all the amazing fans of the show who have been so loyal."

Leading up to the live event, truTV will engage fans via social media by encouraging followers to tweet using #LivePunishment. Also, starting Aug. 13, fans can tweet their vote for which Joker they think will "walk the farthest," using #TeamMurr, #TeamJoe, #TeamQ, or #TeamSal. A poll will be featured on-air during the live broadcast, tabulating Twitter votes in real-time, stopping just short of the Impractical Jokers' tightrope attempts. Follow @truTVJokers for updates.

To further provide fans with everything Impractical Jokers, truTV.com will feature a pre- and post-episode digital show, live from South Street Seaport. Beginning at 9.30 p.m. ET/6.30 p.m. PT, the pre-show will feature guests, exclusive video and surprises. Immediately following the Live Special, the four Jokers will sit down for an interview to discuss their walk across the wire as well as answer questions fans have submitted via social media.

Fans and the public are encouraged to come watch, offer support and enjoy the onsite activities. After a successful run in San Diego during Comic Con International, The Impractical Jokers Museum of Impractical History, a specially curated exhibition featuring fan-generated artwork and show artifacts from some of the most legendary moments in Impractical Jokers history, is coming to New York City and will open to the public beginning at 10 a.m. at 19 Fulton St at the South Street Seaport.

The live punishment will also have a charitable element as each Joker's favorite charity - Doctors Without Borders (Sal,) Daniel's Music Foundation (Joe,) Make-A-Wish (Murr) and Stephen Siller Foundation (Q) receives a charitable contribution, determined by how far of a distance each Joker walks.
