Plot Synopsis

Long-time friends Sal, Murr, Q and Joe dare each other to perform crazy and humiliating hidden-camera pranks to find out who's the best under pressure, and at the end of the episode the loser must attempt the most mortifying challenge ever. Pranks include: serving up some mischief from behind a food-service counter; taking on tourists in Times Square; checking out customers in a warehouse store; getting liberal with suntan lotion down at the shore; shopping from other people's carts in a supermarket; trying to scam their way to a free dish of yogurt; speed dating with the world's worst pickup lines; reading phony fortunes on the boardwalk; getting too personal with shoppers in the hygiene aisle of a pharmacy; approaching strangers with humiliating one liners on the streets of New York; playing a unique word game in a grocery store; and trying to get shoppers to hop in a trunk at a car dealership. After airing four bonus episodes from Season 2 in September 2012, truTV presented the official Season 2 premiere of IMPRACTICAL JOKERS on Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 10pm.

In the first episode back, "Bigger in Texas," Joe, Sal, Q, and Murr head to the Lone Star State in a special episode that proves even embarrassment is bigger in Texas. The city boys from New York whip up trouble teaching cowboy skills on a ranch, and forget their southern hospitality trying to sell western wear.

The 26-episode fifth season of IMPRACTICAL JOKERS premiered on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on truTV, immediately following an all-day marathon (11am-10pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "HellCopter," Sal, Murr and Q pose as unreceptive receptionists in an office waiting room, then head to a wax museum where they mingle with the stiff crowd. Then, in tonight's double punishment, the two losers are taken on a chopper ride from hell. IMPRACTICAL JOKERS returned for the second half of its fifth season on Thursday, July 14, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on truTV, with 13 new episodes. In the mid-season premiere, a special one-hour "British Invasion" episode, Joe, Q, Sal and Murr cross the pond and double-cross each other, serving up pints of awkwardness and sticking out like sore thumbs. Their hilarious excursion culminates with an unforgettable punishment in front of thousands of cheering fans. Leading up to the summer premiere, truTV aired an 11-hour marathon (9am-10pm) of encore episodes, including a primetime block(8-10pm) of city invasions, as the Jokers take their hijinx on the road with episodes shot in Miami, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Texas.
