On last night’s episode of “Impractical Jokers,” titled “Jokers Playhouse,” Tru-TV states a loud and clear warning that the following program contains scenes of graphic stupidity among four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other. Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn and James “Murr” Murray would do just about anything to win a challenge.
In the first group of clips, the guys were giving personality tests to strangers, but the real test was for them. The other three guys were behind glass, but at the touch of a button, the glass becomes see-through and their job is not to laugh. Q was up first, and was interviewing a woman named Elizabeth. When the glass was lit, he spotted Murr and Sal holding a six-foot sandwich and Joe dressed in karate clothes chopping the sandwich in half, along with the board it was on. Next there was a completely naked fat man shaking his body as the three others were hysterical. Q could not keep a straight face on that one. Next Joe and Murr were in a bathtub while Sal screamed in hysterics as they wore crazy shower caps and had large handled bath brushes. To top it off, there was a man in a bathing suit, wearing a Godzilla mask standing by buildings, then a couple of Japanese kids were acting frightened at the monster. Q laughed twice. Not too bad for the displays that were put on.
When Murr was up, he also interviewed a woman. As he asked her general questions, the first scene was Q with a Murr puppet. They were drinking beer out of a bottle next, and then broke the bottles over each one’s head. Joe dancing like Flashdance was funny, and the lady he was interviewing asked why he was laughing, when Joe dropped the bucket on himself, it contained donuts, that he ate as he made eyes at Murr. Murr had two laughs as well.
Sal was next, and he had to interview a large man named Zachary. When the light went on, Murr was posing with fake nursing breasts that starting squirting milk. Next Joe was dressed as a baby and taking milk from Murr, as Sal turned purple and could not hold in a guffaw. Then Q was dressed as a bride, as Sal’s father was posing as the groom. Sal needed adult diapers for the two laughs he let out this time.
Joe was next, as he asked his client questions about his typical movie experience, the other three were dressed as the Village People performing YMCA. Next, as the man was very seriously answering questions, a topless old woman appeared, then Q stood next to her, and she pulled him by the tie, and he planted a juicy kiss on her lips. Joe was close to tears laughing, but that was his only laugh, leaving the other three in a tie with two.
The second challenge in a park, was to have people repeat a phrase. Joe went first, and they gave him a word as a couple went by, they had to repeat the explanation of the word that was given by the twisted other three. Sexy, was the first word, and his explanation was, what he called his sister. They just looked at him like he was a serial rapist. When Q, sporting a new ponytail was up, he was trying to get people to like. Murr did not get any repeats on this venture making him the loser of the night.
For his punishment, Murr had to read to the kids in a nursery school. However, the guys were going to Murr’s house to wreck the place, and it will be shown on the big-screen television while the kids and Murr watch it live. Murr told them to get the hell out of his apartment, but there were questions behind the television, and he had to ask the kids what the guys should do. First question was; should they have a serious talk or a silly string fight, of course; the kids wanted to watch the silly string fight. Play a flute or play Frisbee with a pizza. Should Crazy Steve read a story or take a bubble bath? Do you want the guys to clean the toilet or feed the toilet Murr’s clean clothes? The last question was one Murr refused to read, so Q asked the kids if they should smash his television, and instead of waiting for an answer, Q produced a huge sledgehammer with a multi-colored handle and proceeded to smash his television, as they whooped and hollered with glee. When the time was up, Murr left the kids, with fire in his eyes on this insane episode of “Impractical Jokers.”
