truTV's wildly popular hidden-camera comedy Impractical Jokers is set to launch its second season on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), with a whole new set of crazy dares from lifelong pals Brian "Q" Quinn, James "Murr" Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano.
Since they were kids these friends from Staten Island, NY have challenged one another to do the most ridiculous public dares imaginable.

Then, at the end of each episode, the loser must attempt the most mortifying challenge ever. Impractical Jokers comes to truTV from NorthSouth Productions.
