Now in its eighth season, “Impractical Jokers” follows The Tenderloins as they compete to embarrass each other while being filmed by hidden cameras.
The group wrapped their first feature film in 2019 and are also debuting a new TV show — TBS’s “The Misery Index” hosted by Jameela Jamil.

The Troupe has toured steadily over the last four years with its highly-successful, “Where’s Larry?,” “Santiago Sent Us,” and “Cranjis McBasketball” tours playing to hundreds of thousands of fans across the United States and in the UK, including three sold-out nights at Radio City Music Hall, a sold-out Madison Square Garden, and five sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena.

Natives of Staten Island, NY, Vulcano, Gatto, Murray and Quinn met while attending high school and later formed The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe in 1999. After years of performing live improv and sketch comedy shows, The Tenderloins received millions of views for their internet sketches, eventually leading to “Impractical Jokers” for truTV.
