Here’s how fans of Impractical Jokers can watch full episodes of the show online. Season 1 of the hidden camera show premiered in December 2011 on TruTV and it’s still going strong eight seasons later. Impractical Jokers stars life-long friends Joe Gatto, Brian ‘Q’ Quinn, James ‘Murr’ Murray, and Sal Vulcano – also known as comedy troupe The Tenderloins – and follows them as they compete against each other in hilarious (and often awkward) public pranks. Unlike many other hidden camera shows, it's the hosts that are the butt of the joke rather than the unsuspecting public, which is partly what makes Impractical Jokers so funny.
In 2019 the world of Impractical Jokers got a whole lot bigger. Last year, the guys filmed a full-length Impractical Jokers movie produced by TruTV Films and comedy website Funny or Die which is set to premiere sometime later this year. More recently, the pranksters had further cause for celebration when the show was renewed for its ninth season, which is scheduled to air in 2020. With that in mind, here’s how you can watch full episodes of Impractical Jokers online to catch up with the previous series before season 9 hits screens.
One of the best ways to watch Impractical Jokers episodes is by downloading the TruTV app which allows viewers to watch full seasons of the show, although some content does require a subscription to a participating TV provider. Another way to view full episodes is by joining HBO Max, the new streaming service developed by TruTV’s parent company WarnerMedia. HBO Max is expected to cost subscribers somewhere between $16 and $20 a month but the only problem is it won’t be launched until early 2020.
In the meantime, there are several other options available to Impractical Jokers fans before the launch of HBO Max. Several full episodes are available online via YouTube TV and though the service just increased its monthly subscription to $49.99, YouTube TV does offer a free one-week trial for viewers before they commit. Netflix subscribers’ options are unfortunately a tad limited as the streaming service only has full episodes from Impractical Jokers season 1 currently available to watch.
However, DIRECTV offers viewers over 90 full episodes of Impractical Jokers from season 3 through to season 8. Another way to watch the show is via Amazon Prime which offers full episodes from all eight seasons of Impractical Jokers, with individual episodes available to purchase for $2.99 and full seasons for $19.99.
