They are currently touring nationwide with “truTV Presents The Impractical Jokers Tour Featuring The Tenderloins”, a mix of stand-up, never-before-seen hidden camera videos, stories and insight into the making of “Impractical Jokers”. Season 3 of “Impractical Jokers” began on January 2, 2014, with 31 brand new episodes. In addition, the guys are starring in a new series for truTV, titled “Jokers After Party”.

They went on to win the $100,000 grand prize of NBC’s “It’s Your Show”, a sketch comedy competition show, hosted by Carson Daly. A single-camera, scripted sitcom pilot with Spike TV followed, based on the guys’ real lives. They have also had pilots with A&E, TBS, CMT and VH1, as well as their own independently produced sitcom pilot, which was an official New York Television Festival selection.
