Impractical Jokers is starting up again this spring with a new format featuring the show's three remaining co-creators and special celebrity guest punishments each week.
During a recent visit to Q104.3 New York speaking about his new children's book, Alien Summer #1, James Murray addressed the forthcoming Jokers season — the show's first since Joe Gatto announced his departure last year.
"The way the show works now is that every episode ends with a different celebrity guest as part of the punishment, somehow punishing the loser," Murr explained. "The first episode is the comedian Eric Andre, who's hysterically funny, and he punishes [SPOILER ALERT]. Tomorrow we film with Brooke Shields in a punishment. I'm very excited.
When Jim asked how complicated the weekly celebrity element has made the show, Murr saw an opportunity and struck.
"The real reason I came here is not to talk about the book. Jim, are you free next Thursday?" Murr asked. "I'll tell you what ... we could probably come up with a great punishment with you."
