‘Impractical Jokers’ discuss the success of their show: ‘It’s still, to this day, surreal’
Ten years later, the "Impractical Jokers" are still stunned by the success of their reality show.
Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, James Murray and Brian Quinn first met about 30 years ago in high school before launching a comedy empire.
They are internationally known for their reality TV show, which released its first episode in December 2011. Three of the jokers spoke with Fox News Digital about how "surreal" their success still is to them.
"It's common for us to be making the show because we're working with our friends and the crew is our friends, and it's just our lives, and it's great," said Brian "Q" Quinn.
"But if I take a step back and look at it, it is kind of mind-blowing like that. We're still doing this ten years on with the same people and everything like that. Like it's pretty beautiful."
They said, to them, it feels like they film their show and then "show our home video to people."
"When you take a minute to think of what the scope of it actually is and who it's reached, it’s still to this day, surreal," said Sal Vulcano.
The "Impractical Jokers" have filmed nine seasons, with the 10th premiering Thursday with Jillian Bell. The group shared that celebrity guests will include Colin Jost, Method Man, Chris Jericho, David Cross, Rob Riggle, Adam Pally, Eric Andre and more. The men call their guests a "cosmic gumbo" in the upcoming season.
