The show’s stars Joe, Sal, Q and Murr are set to take on their most challenging dare yet, the show’s first ever live punishment extravaganza. The group called upon the expertise of Ringling Bros. Circus clown and “World’s Greatest Dare Devil” Bello Nock, to provide training and tips on the art of successful tightrope walking. Why, you ask? The Jokers will be embarking on a high-wire walk five stories in the air in New York City.
With multiple cameras positioned to capture every moment and New York City’s South Street Seaport as the backdrop, the quartet known for challenging one another to do the most outrageous dares in public will attempt to outdo each other to see who can walk the farthest distance. The winner will claim victory for their favorite charity. truTV.com will feature a pre- and post-episode digital show, live from South Street Seaport. The pre-show will feature guests, exclusive video and surprises. Immediately following the Live Special, the four Jokers will sit down for an interview to discuss their walk across the wire as well as answer questions fans have submitted via social media.
