Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (4)
Several pranks have gotten the jokers in trouble with the police. For instance, Murr using a stranger's camera to take a picture of his genitals, and Joe standing over strangers at a beach and using his crotch to invade their personal space.
Joe is the only joker that doesn't drink alcohol.
Sal, Murr, and Q all have permanent tattoos as a result of a single punishment. Joe picked what they got, the most interesting one being Sal getting a tattoo of Jaden Smith on his leg.
The show was originally going to be called "Mission: Uncomfortable".
In a Reddit AMA, Sal said he has been physically assaulted two times: A woman slapped him for telling her that her baby was ugly, and a shell-shocked war vet choked him for cutting in line.
The woman Q (Brian Quinn) lost his virginity to is in prison.
Murr admitted to wearing two condoms the first time he had sex.
Murr (James Murray) had both nipples and his belly button pierced due to his punishment in the episode 'Puncture Perfect'.
Q was a fireman with the FDNY for eight years.
Murr speaks over four languages.
In a periscope chat on 1 March 2016, Murr revealed that the Impractical Jokers may be filming a movie over the summer
The Impractical Jokers app marked the first time ever a TV series companion app included a direct line to the stars of the show.
It has been mentioned several times that Murr has "been somewhat intimate with a stuffed animal".
All of them have known each other since high school.
Their comic troupe's name is The Tenderloins.
On the live punishment where the four jokers had to walk a high wire five stories high, out of the four jokers, Q was the only one to walk across the entire wire without falling.
Joe's signature line is "Larry!", while Q's is " Hey, mustache". When they see a (usually muscular) man with a pony tail, one of the Jokers always says "Nice ponytail, Cupcake".
Sal's nicknames are Ja'Crispy, and Balogna Cheeks.
Joe and Sal have both been hit by a car. Sal was hit when he was four-years-old.
Q has a fake tooth.
While filming an episode of Season One, the Jokers were in a basement of a pet store while the crew was setting up equipment, and Murr ate dog poop for $290. This was captured on video and is shown at The Tenderloins' live shows.
Q (Brian Quinn) will not eat peanut butter or sushi.
The first challenge the Jokers ever filmed wasn't aired on the show until Episode 14 of Season 1.

It was stated in the episode "wrong playwright," among other episodes, that Q was dumped by his fiancée before his wedding. In reality, Q left his fiancée and the apartment they had together at 3 AM and only took his statue of the joker that was there. Leaving everything else behind. He never saw her again. Only brief communication.

Q has been a podcaster since before the show, when he was still a firefighter. He was (and still is) the third member on the award winning podcast "tell em Steve Dave," with Comic book men Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanagan, who he met while interning with Kevin Smith. Since then, he has also started a podcast with fellow joker Sal Vulcano called "What Say You?" He considers it his favorite thing to do in his life.
