Impractical Jokers: Homecoming
July 12, 2018 - March 24, 2019
Impractical Jokers: Homecoming, the first-ever museum exhibition about the hit television series on truTV, opened at the Staten Island Museum on Thursday, July 12, 2018.
Impractical Jokers: Homecoming explored the story of four longtime friends from Staten Island whose hidden-camera, comedic television show, Impractical Jokers, that became a pop culture phenomenon. Steeped in embarrassment and awkward situations that make us both laugh and cringe, the humor is built upon a foundation of trust and camaraderie amongst the four guys, James “Murr” Murray, Sal Vulcano, Brain “Q” Quinn, and Joe Gatto.
On display were original costumes, props and art created over the previous seven seasons. New interviews, episode highlights, behind-the-scenes production and some fun secrets were included. The exhibition was a journey with the guys from high school hijinks to mainstream comedic success that all started on the shores of Staten Island. Interactive surprises and some “Easter eggs” were found throughout the museum to make the Impractical Jokers’ exhibition experience as unexpected as the Impractical Jokers themselves. The exhibition was curated by Joe Imburgio, one of the comedy producers of the television series, who brings humor to the interpretation.
