Each episode contains a regime of multiple challenges in teams, independently or against specific jokers in a head to head challenge. Every time they fail to complete a task the joker will receive a red thumbs down. The joker with the most thumbs down after the series of challenges is the loser who has to complete an extremely embarrassing or difficult task in which the jokers cannot say no to. These Loser Challenges have consisted of dangerous stunts and some scary scenes! Written by Sam Sneddon

User Reviews

The Funniest New Show in Years
16 December 2012 | by GadareSee all my reviews

This show is a hilarious combination of real life pranks/dares filmed and prompted by 4 friends with a wonderful sense of humor and camaraderie.

If you ever had a friend that you liked to prank (and who would lay in wait to get even) then you can identify and laugh with these 4 who take the greatest delight in making each other do ridiculous gags on the public. However, it's the stars of the show that get the humiliation rather than the unsuspecting victims a la "Candid Camera".

So, if you want to watch a goofy, goodspirited half hour of belly laughs, check out "Impractical Jokers". It's a winner!
