They’re kicking things off with a bang on Thursday, July 21st from 12-10pm by following up last year’s Museum of Impractical Jokers with the Hall of Impractical Jokers. For three days, Comic Con attendees can get up close and personal with some of the best jokes and artifacts from the show, while playing custom games like “Pin the Tail on the Ferret with Blackout Glasses” and pleasing their inner foodie with themed drinks and food. There will also be a live-streamed Q&A with the whole Tenderloin squad and CherryLA asking questions at 6:30pm.

While there, attendees can try their hands at some of the show’s most beloved dares and punishments like, “Pseudo Sumo” where participants can try out sumo wrestling, and “Rodeo Clown” for the brave souls wanting to ride a mechanical bull.
