Impractical Jokers Net Worth $2.4 million
The idea of Impractical Jokers TV show originated in 1999, when four high school friends from Monsignor Farrell High School in Staten Island, New York City created a comedy group named The Tenderloins. The troupe consists of James ‘Murr’ Murray, Joseph ‘Joe’ Gatto Jr., Salvatore ‘Sal’ Vulcano and last but not the least Brian ‘Q’ Quinn. After almost a decade of successfully performing their live improv sketches and skits on gigs all across the states, The Tenderloins came to greater commercial success after winning NBC’s comedy competition “It’s Your Show”, earning a sum of $100,000 in prize money. These ventures helped the four comedians to greatly enlarge the basis of their net worth.
The idea of their own TV show came in 2008, when they launched a pilot episode of their own sitcom on Spike TV which, however, didn’t managed to go into production. However, in late 2011, The Tenderloins alongside NorthSouth Productions and TruTV, launched the Impractical Jokers TV show which rapidly gained viewers as well as huge popularity among the audience. What differentiates Impractical Jokers from other prank shows is its very own concept – it is based on challenges! At the beginning of each episode, jokers explain where they are and what the challenge is, and then each of them try to fulfill it, by performing a prank on random strangers in public places such as cafeterias, parks, metro stations and many other venues. For every unsuccessful try, one gets “Thumbs-Down” from the other three and, at the end of the episode, the one who collects most thumbs-downs gets punished in a humiliating, embarrassing or even painful way. Since 2011, Impractical Jokers has aired six seasons, while the seventh season is announced for 2018. It is certain that the show’s global popularity dramatically impacted Impractical Jokers’ net worth.

He graduated from Georgetown University, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language.

Joseph Gatto Jr. – Joe was born on the 5th June 1976, and after high school, he attended LIU Post from which he graduated with a diploma in accounting. He worked at a retail store before turning towards his on-camera career full time. It is estimated that his current net worth revolves around the sum of $500,000.
