Nitro Circus, the world’s leading youth action sports and entertainment brand, are coming together to produce a two-hour special live event, Impractical Jokers Live: Nitro Circus Spectacular, an ultimate celebration to cap off the fifth season of the popular truTV series. Hosted by extreme sports superstar Travis Pastrana and powered by the unmatched showmanship of Nitro Circus, the season finale will feature Joe, Murr, Q and Sal, collectively known as The Tenderloins, tackling their biggest challenges yet, including two high-stakes live punishments and a four-part obstacle course.
Set to air Thursday, November 3, at 8pm, the Impractical Jokers Live: Nitro Circus Spectacular will be broadcast live from Prudential Center in Newark, NJ and will reveal which Joker can best overcome their nerves to claim victory for ultimate bragging rights – and their favorite charity. The Jokers have a great history with Prudential Center, having visited The Rock to film punishments with the New Jersey Devils and Top Rank Boxing.

And die-hard fans would be well-advised to follow the Jokers on Twitter and Facebook to find an exclusive pre-sale code allowing them to purchase advance tickets starting Friday, September 23, at 10am.
This year’s live special with Nitro Circus builds on the overwhelming success of the Impractical Jokers Live Punishment Special which aired on truTV in September 2015. The series’ first-ever live punishment featured all four Jokers participating in a high-wire walk five stories above the streets of NYC in an electric moment to celebrate the show’s 100th episode. That special was a huge success.
