Impractical jokers unite! Starting next Thursday, July 21st-Saturday, July 23rd, truTV’s Impractical Jokers will be taking over San Diego alongside the much anticipated Comic Con International. Your very own Cherry LA
will be there to interview the cast, which includes all the Tenderloins: Sal, Joe, Murr, and Q, so don’t forget to add your questions to the comment section!
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. You don’t want to miss this madness at Dick’s Last Resort in San Diego’s Gaslamp district!
But the best is saved for last when on Saturday, July 23rd they move venues to The Park at Petco Park (Seventh Avenue and K Street) from 3:30-8pm for a block part of impractical size. 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. With music from DJ Sid Vicious, and an autograph signing with the Jokers from 4-5pm, this is the place to be.

On Saturday, July 23, join truTV and thousands of fans at the one-of-a-kind Block Party extravaganza celebrating all things Impractical Jokers. Unlike anything you’ve ever seen – unless, of course, you’re a New Yorker who grew up going to neighborhood block parties and street fairs – this massive block party will give fans a chance to get up close and personal with some of the show’s most exciting and iconic dares and punishments. Things like:
Pseudo Sumo: Trying their hand at sumo wrestling (Season 4; Episode 11)

Field of Screams: Navigating a corn maze with Benjamin the Cat (Season 3; Episode 3)

There will be lots to do, including music from DJ Sid Vicious, food, an autograph signing with the Jokers from 4:00-5:00 p.m. and an exclusive sneak peek of a never-before-seen episode of Impractical Jokers starting at 8:00 p.m.
All activities are free and open to the public on a first come, first served basis.
Plus don’t miss the exclusive sneak peak of a never-before-seen episode of Impractical Jokers at 8pm!
This is not a weekend you want to miss, I mean that would just be impractical, a joke really. Ok, I’m done with the puns, for now…
New episodes from Impractical Jokers’ fifth season return on Thursday, July 14 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with a special hour-long episode that drops the four long-time friends in London for Impractical Jokers: British Invasion. The special will be followed by the series premiere of Impractical Jokers: Inside Jokes at 11:00pm ET/PT which packs classic, fan-favorite episodes of the show with sharable pop-up facts throughout.
