Get Ready to Laugh Your Ass Off When TruTV's Impractical Jokers Come to San Antonio

Created by New York comedy troupe the Tenderloins (Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano), TruTV’s Impractical Jokers is sort of like America’s Funniest Home Videos if you replace the toddler whacking his dad in the groin with a whiffle ball bat with a Candid Camera feed of the dad hitting himself in the junk in front of perplexed passersby while his Jackass best friends (minus the druggy, punk menace) giggle and tell him to do it harder.

That’s too reductive of the improvised prank show, but one bit did require a Joker to shoot free throws until he sank a basket; when he missed, a little girl hit him in the shin with a plastic bat. How many times do you laugh? If the answer is “every time,” seeing the Jokers performing stand-up and sharing behind-the-scenes stories and clips on their Cranjis McBasketball World Tour will no doubt be a hoot. Just keep an eye out for hidden cameras and whiffle ball bats.

$57, Sat Sept 8, 7pm & 9:30pm, The Majestic Theater, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333,
