5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Simply The Funniest Show On Television Right Now, 11 Feb 2014
This review is from: Impractical Jokers: The Complete First Season DVD (DVD)
I found this TV entirely by accident; after watching the UK version which was a six episode season aired on BBC3 in 2013 I searched for it on IMDB and discovered it was a remake/franchise of the US version, which is longer and funnier. As the into credits will remind you, four life long friends dare each other to interact with members of the public in embarrassing, awkward, insulting and down right humiliating ways. If they refuse, they lose the task and the person with the most losses at the end of the episode has to perform a forfeit task which is always deeply uncomfortable to watch, goodness knows what it must be like to actually perform it.

The real beauty of this show is that you never know how random members of the public are going to react to the gangs bizarre antics but the results are much more predictable, tears of laughter and an aching jaw after every episode.

When my family came to visit they asked if we had anything to watch and I put an episode of this on, everyone in the room was in hysterics by the end (including my 72 year old father who's not easily amused) and that was it, it was all they wanted to do for the duration of their three day visit. I can think of nothing that's made me laugh more. My sister talks about it every time we meet now. It's on it's third season in the US and it is thoroughly, utterly recommended for anyone who likes laughing, which is surely everyone?
