About Impractical Jokers and The Tenderloins LIVE!
Brian “Q” Quinn, Sal Vulcano, Joe Gatto and James “Murr” Murray are the creators, executive producers, writers and stars of truTV’s hit show, Impractical Jokers and stars of Tenderloins LIVE!, an interactive comedy show with improv, never before seen videos inspired by the hit television show Impractical Jokers and more.
Natives of Staten Island, New York, Vulcano, Gatto, Murray and Quinn met while attending high school, and later formed The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe in 1999. After years of performing live improv and sketch comedy shows in theatres, clubs and festivals across the country, The Tenderloins crossed over to the web, garnering millions of views for their Internet sketches. At the height of MySpace’s popularity, The Tenderloins were ranked #1 out of over 120,000 comedian accounts.
They went on to win the $100,000 grand prize of NBC’s “It’s Your Show,” a sketch comedy competition hosted by Carson Daly. A single-camera, scripted sitcom pilot with Spike TV followed, based on the guys' real lives. They have also had pilots with A&E, TBS, CMT and VH1, as well as their own independently produced sitcom pilot, which was an official New York Television Festival selection.
