“Impractical Jokers” Announce Season 11 Return On TBS

Impractical Jokers is an unconventional force to be reckoned with. The hidden-camera show has provided us stomach curling laughs for over a decade as the group does anything to make each other laugh. The group, made of Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, and Sal Vulcano, are keeping the long held tradition of pranks alive. They’ve all been buffing up their chops with their own stand-up careers. Vulcano, namely, just released his hilarious debut special, Terrified, on YouTube this past week which now has an impressive over 600k views in just one week. The skill to feed off a live audience from stand-up has greatly helped the trio with their widely successful live show Impractical Jokers: The DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE Tour.

Impractical Jokers has been a cornerstone in live TV comedy, particularly for gen z who hit puberty as soon as the show hit the air. With their fanbase now becoming functioning adults, Impractical Jokers is ready to ride the wave of nostalgia from a generation their content proved formative to. The prank show is back for season 11 but this time under a new network. The group has already gone through some tough changes such as Joe Gatto, the fourth member of the group, had to leave in season 9 for personal reasons. Despite having such an integral part to their show leave, the now trio has persevered, maintaining their level of success. The show reached 11.1M total viewers across truTV and TBS last season alone. Seeing the show persevere through drastic changes only proves that Impractical Jokers will take the network change in stride.

President of Turner Networks, Jason Sarlanis, is excited to have Impractical Jokers under the networks belt, “TBS has long been the home of comedy, making ‘Impractical Jokers’ the perfect fit for our Thursday night lineup.” This change is instead an expansion as Sarlanis explains, “The Jokers have taken the challenge of a bigger network and expanded audience to deliver even more outrageous humor than ever before.”

Season 11 premieres Thursday, July 11 at 10pm ET/PT with nothing short of celebrity guest appearances and all things gone wrong. The trio will go back to their childhoods with ‘90’s celebrity guests Brooke Shields–who happens to be a part of a pizza shop mishap–and ‘NSYNC’s Joey Fatone–who hosts a dance party. The trio will also cause an NCAA March Madness takeover to go wrong. Nothing is off limits. Shields and Fatone are not the only famous faces to grace the stage, comedians Roy Wood Jr., Richard Kind, and Jo DeRosa will all make appearances in addition to AEW’s John Silver. The Jokers are here to stay and we, as well as Brooke Shields, can’t get enough of them.
