‘Impractical Jokers’ comedy troupe laugh it up at Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton on June 9
From a press release:
After packing the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre for two back-to-back shows last year, The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe from truTV’s hit series “Impractical Jokers” will bring their Santiago Sent Us Tour to The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton on Friday, June 9.
The Tenderloins, a New York-based comedy troupe whose four members – Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn, and Sal Vulcano – are the creators, executive producers, and stars of “Impractical Jokers” on truTV. Now in its sixth season, “Impractical Jokers” follows The Tenderloins as they coerce one another into doing public pranks while being filmed by hidden cameras. With each new season, the show continues to take dares to outrageous levels with new over-the-top hijinks.
At the end of its fourth season, the series celebrated 100 episodes in the United States with a live television event, “The Impractical Jokers Live Punishment Special.” Hosted by Howie Mandel, the special drew in three million viewers with an impressive 150 MM social media impressions.
The troupe has toured steadily nationwide over the last three years with their highly successful Where’s Larry? Tour, playing to thousands of fans per market, including a three-night sold out run at New York’s historic Radio City Music Hall. The current tour, Santiago Sent Us, continues on The Tenderloins’ success on the road, broadening the live show’s reach in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, selling out four shows at The O2 Arena in London in January of 2017. The new show is a mix of stand-up, never-before-seen hidden camera videos, stories, and insight.
Natives of Staten Island, New York, Sal, Joe, “Murr,” and “Q” met while attending high school and later formed The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe in 1999. After years of performing live improv and sketch comedy shows, The Tenderloins crossed over to the web, garnering millions of views for their Internet sketches, eventually creating the runaway success “Impractical Jokers” for television. “Impractical Jokers” is in the Top 5 in its timeslot on cable in the U.S. and is the No. 1 show on Comedy Central in the United Kingdom and India.
