truTV’s Impractical Jokers Are Headed To The Prudential Center

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Critically acclaimed, world renowned comedy troupe, and stars of TruTV’s hit series Impractical Jokers, The Tenderloins have announced a brand-new world tour titled “The Cranjis McBasketball World Tour – Starring The Tenderloins.”  On the heels of the group’s hugely successful “Santiago Sent Us” tour, “The Cranjis McBasketball World Tour” will feature completely new material and hi-jinx for audiences across the globe. This comedy filled event will make a stop at Prudential Center on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 7:00pm.

In addition to touring, The Tenderloins continue to have a very busy and productive 2018.  This past March, the group announced plans for an official Impractical Jokers feature film to be directed by Chris Henchy and produced by Funny or Die.  TruTV also renewed the show for a 26-episode eight season will extend the series on truTV through 2019 and beyond, 200 episodes in all. 

The Tenderloins, is a New York-based comedy troupe, whose four members – Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano – are the creators, executive producers, and stars of truTV’s hit series, Impractical Jokers. Now in its seventh season, Impractical Jokers follows The Tenderloins as they coerce one another into doing public pranks while being filmed by hidden cameras. With each new season, the show continues to take dares to outrageous levels with new over-the-top hijinks.

In addition to the top-rated television show, the Troupe has toured steadily over the last four years with its highly-successful, “Where’s Larry?” & “Santiago Sent Us,” tours playing to hundreds of thousands of fans in the US and UK, including three sold-out nights at Radio City Music Hall, a sold-out Madison Square Garden, and five sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena. Natives of Staten Island, NY, Vulcano, Gatto, Murray and Quinn met while attending high school and later formed The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe in 1999.

After years of performing live improv and sketch comedy shows, The Tenderloins crossed over to the web, garnering millions of views for their internet sketches, eventually creating the runaway success Impractical Jokers for truTV. Impractical Jokers is top 5 in its timeslot on cable in the US and is the #1 show on Comedy Central in the United Kingdom and India.
