Everyone loves a good candid camera prank (unless you’re the one getting fooled), so Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122) is delighted to welcome Impractical Jokers to its stable of world-class comedic content. New to the South African market, the long-running American series is set to premiere on Monday, 7 October at 21:00 CAT.
With never-before-seen episodes, fans can expect next-level hidden camera gags as four lifelong friends from Staten Island – Brian ‘Q’ Quinn, James ‘Murr’ Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano – challenge each other to complete outrageous dares in public. If the sheer embarrassment wasn’t enough, the loser of the Impractical Jokers must endure a mortifying punishment for his failed dare, decided by the rest of the group.
Well-loved by its American audience, Impractical Jokers currently ranks as the number two highest-rated comedy show on cable TV and the number one unscripted comedy series on cable. South African fans can also look forward to an extra bonus – by tuning in, you and your travel companion of choice could be jetting off to Las Vegas. We have hidden various emojis on the show up until 17 October – find them, take a photo of them on your TV screen, and email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter our Watch and Win Competition.
Dillon Khan, Vice President of Comedy Central & Creative Services at Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN Africa) said, “Impractical Jokers is more than just four best friends making complete fools of themselves for our benefit. Audiences respond very well to the foursome’s friendship, which is at the core of the show, and then watch because they enjoy the comedy element of it. With a trip to Vegas up for grabs, we expect our viewers excitement to rise to a fever pitch.”
