Impractical jokers is an upbeat comedy show that uses hidden cameras to record the action. However, unlike other hidden camera shows whose victims are unsuspecting members of the public, the joke is very much at the expense of the presenters who are four comedians competing with each other to carry out crazy dares and awkward challenges.
As comedians, the team are all well equipped to react to the comedy of the situation they find themselves in. However the twist is that in order to score points, they must say or do what they are told by other comedians behind the scenes via a secret earpiece. If they refuse, they lose.
Each task is played out by all four comedians then judged and scored. The climax of the show sees the loser facing a cringe-making final challenge that must be carried out alone. The bigger the public spectacle, the better!
