The Show Must Go On

It’ll be really interesting to see how the Impractical Jokers (who have vowed to continue the show) fare without him, besides, he is the boldest, and one of the funniest after all… One thing’s for sure, he will be truly be missed.

The show, which concluded its 9th season (spanning over 11 years) last year, has already filmed season 10, with plans to air on America’s TruTV soon.

We’d like to wish Joe, and the entire cast and team of Impractical Jokers all the best! Here’s hoping that Joe’s departure doesn’t last long and that they’ll be back as the best comedic quartet soon. In the meantime, a trio will do just fine.
