April 7, 2014 (New Orleans, LA) - Those hilarious hidden-camera pranksters from truTV's hit series Impractical Jokers are coming to the Saenger Theatre on May 30 for The truTV Impractical Jokers Tour featuring The Tenderloins. Sponsored by truTV, the show will star Impractical Jokers' Q, Sal, Murr & Joe, the lifelong friends who are also known as the comedy team The Tenderloins.
About truTV's Impractical Jokers
truTV's hit series Impractical Jokers currently airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). The show centers on Q, Murr, Joe and Sal, four longtime friends who dare one another to do ridiculous things in public, then capture their extreme dares on hidden camera, complete with the unsuspecting public's amused, confused, or flabbergasted reactions. After completing each dare, the guys are given a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down to determine who succeeded under pressure and who collapsed in defeat. At the end of each episode, the guy with the most fails must face a mortifying punishment with truly humiliating consequences.
Impractical Jokers premiered on truTV to critical acclaim in December 2011 and quickly became one of the network's biggest hits, especially among young adults. The show averaged 2.8 million viewers in Q1 2013 and ranked among basic cable's Top 5 programs in the timeslot with key adult and male demos. Impractical Jokers is also one of truTV's youngest-skewing series, scoring a median age of only 32.
Impractical Jokers is now in its third season. The network also greenlit a new post-show, entitled Jokers After Party. Impractical Jokers and Jokers After Party are produced for truTV by NorthSouth Productions (Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, Double Divas), with Charlie DeBevoise and Mark Hickman serving as executive producers.
