Impractical Jokers is a hidden camera show that follows four friends as they challenge each other to perform off-the-wall activities while interacting with the unsuspecting public. The jokers are James Murr Murray, Joe Q Quinn, Sal Vulcano and Joe Gatto; members of the comedy troupe, The Tenderloins, who have been friends since their high school days in Staten Island, New York.

On Impractical Jokers, each of the four friends must take on the same task, but perform it individually, while the other three watch and give commands of funny things to say or do via a hidden listening device. The instructions are always strange or humiliating (and sometimes insulting), which makes the ability to go through with the commands part of the challenge.

Each joker receives a score based on the success of his stunt, and the one who winds up with the lowest score is forced to perform an even more difficult or embarrassing task. The nature of this prank isn't revealed to the loser until he is about to perform it, leaving him to spring into action without any time to think.

Examples of stunts performed on the first season of Impractical Jokers include the jokers inviting customers to lie in a bed and cuddle with them in a furniture store, recruiting people to sign weird petitions at a college campus, reading fake horoscopes to patrons at a shopping mall and taking food from other people's plates in restaurants.

Impractical Jokers premiered in December of 2011 on the TruTv network. It was renewed for a second season, which is scheduled to premiere in December of 2012.
